Subject: [Caml-list] OCaml 3.06 bug-fix release
A couple of embarrassing bugs crept into Objective Caml 3.05, so we've
just released version 3.06, available from the usual place:

This is essentially a bug-fix release, with no new features.  Users of
3.05 are strongly encouraged to upgrade to 3.06.

For general info on Objective Caml, see  Bug
reports go to, messages for the implementors to, and general discussions to the mailing-list, or the or comp.lang.functional
