Subject: [Caml-list] Announcement: Findlib-1.0 released
Hi list,

I have just released version 1.0 of findlib, the library manager for
O'Caml. This is a rather big step, as the list of changes is very long.
Nevertheless, this version of findlib is backward-compatible with
previous versions. However, O'Caml 3.07 is required for installation.

The most prominent changes:

- It is now possible that a package has subpackages. This is very
  useful to express intra-package dependencies.

- There are a number of new features for META files, e.g. it is
  possible to append to variables, and to negate predicates.

- There is now ocamldoc documentation

- There is a subversion repository

The detailed list of changes is included in the README file, see here:

The whole (updated) documentation is available here:


A lot of fun,

Gerd Stolpmann * Viktoriastr. 45 * 64293 Darmstadt * Germany
