Subject: Wink Technologies release OCaml libraries
Hi list,

I'm proud to report that we've won another company supporting OCaml,
nameley Wink Technologies, in Los Altos, California (http://wink.com).
They developed a people search engine that lets you find people in the web
(it is online, check it out), and a substantial part of it is written in
OCaml. Although Wink is still tiny in comparison with its competitors this
is nevertheless an important investment into into our beloved language.

As a commitment to OCaml Wink releases two libraries as open source:
"Files" is a batch-oriented persistent key/value container, and "Netdns"
is a DNS stub resolver that is capable of doing asynchronous name
resolutions. You find these libraries at http://oss.wink.com. Please note
that the packing is not yet optimal, and more polishing will be done soon.
But the best is: there is really exciting stuff in the queue of the to be
released code, especially for distributed computing.
