Hi list,

I have recently released the newest versionn of ocamlnet.
This release only addresses issues with the character
set conversion module.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------
What is ocamlnet?
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

A collection of modules for the Objective Caml language which focus on 
application-level Internet protocols and conventions.

The current distribution contains:

- a mature implementation of the CGI protocol

- an implementation of the JSERV protocol (AJP-1.2), can be used with
  mod_jserv (Apache JServ) and mod_jk (Jakarta connector) to connect
  application servers written in O'Caml with web servers

- an experimental POP3 client

- a library of string processing functions related to Internet 
  protocols (formerly known as "netstring" and distributed separately):
  MIME encoding/decoding, Date/time parsing, Character encoding
  conversion, HTML parsing and printing, URL parsing and printing,
  OO-representation of channels, and a lot more.

Ocamlnet is developed as a SourceForge project:

  http://sourceforge.net/projects/ocamlnet

Developers and code contributions are welcome.

Ocamlnet is licensed under the zlib/libpng license.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Where can I download the sources?
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/ocamlnet/ocamlnet-0.96.tar.gz
http://www.ocaml-programming.de/packages/ocamlnet-0.96.tar.gz

You NEED the PCRE library as prerequisite, and findlib is recommended
(but not required).

----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Where can I read more?
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

http://ocamlnet.sourceforge.net. There is also an online version of the
manual.

----------------------------------------------------------------------
Changes in 0.96:
----------------------------------------------------------------------

Netconversion: A lot of changes, more or less I have rewritten this
module. First, the new module is _much_ faster, you will really
notice it. Second, there are a number of new features:
 
- There are now cursors. Cursors are pointers into encoded strings
  that can be moved by multiples of characters (not bytes).
 
- There are a number of string functions that are implemented on
  top of cursors. For example: ustring_length counts the characters
  in a string; ustring_sub extracts a substring.
 
- The Japanese encoding EUC-JP is fully supported.
 
- The conversion tables are now loaded at runtime. Optionally, the
  old method of linking them into the executable is still available.
