Subject: [Caml-list] is ocaml 3.07 object-file compatible with 3.06?
A question to the caml team whose answer would probably be interesting
to the whole list.

Is the beta (or the final, when available) release of 3.07 compatible
at the the object level with 3.06? In other words, if my application
uses a lot of (findlib managed) third parties' libraries, do I need to
recompile all of them, or can I use ocaml 3.07 to link with libraries
compiled with ocaml 3.06?

BTW, I did search (the 'format4' word) in the beta documentation of
3.07 and did not found a clear explanation of the long awaited
('a,'b,'c,'d) Pervasives.format4 type - I would like a *detailed*
explanation of what 'a 'b 'c 'd type variables stand for (even if I do
guess partly what they are for).

Are there any hints for using format4 strings with localisation (ie a
wrapper to gettext)?
