Subject: [Caml-list] ANNOUNCE: mod_caml 1.3.0 released
I'm pleased to announce the release of mod_caml 1.3.0.

mod_caml is a set of Objective CAML (OCaml) bindings for the Apache
API. It allows you to run CGI scripts written in OCaml directly inside
the Apache webserver. However, it is much much more than just that:

 * Bind to any part of the Apache request cycle.
 * Read and modify internal Apache structures.
 * Share modules of code between handlers and scripts.
 * CGI library and templating system (allows separation
   of code and presentation).

Changes in this release:

 * Fixed a long-standing bug where allowing a Not_found exception to
   escape from a CGI script would cause curious results.
 * Added CgiExit exception, 'return ()' function to the Registry module.
 * Added a useful Cgi.Expires module for generating Expires headers.
 * Added a useful Cgi.Cgi_args.parse function for parsing query
   strings (normally you should use the Cgi.cgi class to parse query
   strings for you).
