Subject: [Caml-list] Announcement: Equeue-2.0 (also about Shell pkg)
Hi list,

Although it has been already available since December 6, the
announcement of Equeue-2.0 was still missing. Now, here it is.

The list of changes:

- This release incorporates the modules of the previous Shell
  package (which is no longer continued as such). You can
  now run shell commands within a Unixqueue.

- A new concept is introduced as a means to structure bigger
  event-based programs: engines. After the engine is attached
  to a Unixqueue, it performs a previously specified task in
  an autonomous way, and when the task is done, it reports
  the result. It is possible to combine basic engines to
  larger engines (as a program construction principle).

- Documentation is available in ocamldoc format

- There is a subversion repository:

Documentation is available here:


A lot of fun,
