Hi list,

I'm very proud to announce Ocamlnet 3.0.0, a completely overhauled
version of Ocamlnet.

List of major changes:

      * Port to Win32 (as outlined in the blog article
      * The new Rpc_proxy layer (as described in
      * Extensions of Netplex (Netplex_sharedvar etc.)
      * New implementation of the Shell library for starting
      * Uniform debugging with Netlog.Debug 
      * Exception printers (Netexn) 
      * Coordination of signal handling in Netsys_signal
      * New foundation for Unixqueue via pollsets
      * Extended Unixqueue engines (e.g. Uq_io)
      * More system calls in netsys
      * Camlboxes as an efficient way of message passing between processes
      * The netcgi1 library has been dropped in favor of netcgi2

There are also a lot of minor changes. Some of the changes are
incompatible with code written for Ocamlnet 2, but experience shows that
this rarely creates problems.



Please report problems to

GODI users: For the still inofficial 3.12 release of GODI ocamlnet-3.0.0
will be the regular version of Ocamlnet. For the 3.11 release it is
planned to stick to ocamlnet-2.2.9, and to offer an optional upgrade to
ocamlnet-3.0.0. (See separate message in godi-list.)
