From: Damien Doligez <damien.doligez@i...>
Subject: Ocaml 3.09.2+rc1
Hello,

We have created a "release candidate" version OCaml 3.09.2+rc1.  This  
will
become release 3.09.2 on April 12 (approximately), unless there is some
serious problem with it.

In the meantime, we are asking for some beta-testing: if you are an
adventurous mind with some free time, check it out from the CVS (tag:
ocaml3092rc1) and compile your favourite programs with it, and report
any problems you might find.

Note that we are deliberately _not_ making it available as a tar archive
or binary package.

This is the list of changes from 3.09.1.  We would especially like some
feedback (positive or negative) about the items marked with "+".  If
you find some problem, please post it to the bug tracker:
< http://caml.inria.fr/mantis/main_page.php >.  If everything goes well,
send a mail to the release manager: <damien.doligez@inria.fr>.
