Subject: ANN: OCaml 3.11.1+rc1
Dear OCaml users,

We fixed a few bugs from OCaml 3.11.1+rc0, and prepared a new release  
The main changes from rc0 are the following.

- PR#4796: ocamlyacc: missing NUL termination of string
- PR#4798: compilation of ocamldoc.opt fails under windows
- PR#4804: bug in Big_int.int64_of_big_int on 32-bit platforms.
- PR#4805: improving compatibility with the clang C compiler
- PR#4809: issue with Unix.create_process under Win32

The changes from 3.11.0 are listed at the end of this mail.

If you haven't tested rc0, or if you had a problem with one of the above
bugs, please test rc1 now and send me some feedback.  This release
candidate is available in source code at
< ftp://ftp.inria.fr/INRIA/cristal/ocaml/ocaml-3.11/ocaml-3.11.1+rc1.tar.gz 

We seem to have a small problem remaining in build/install.sh.  It  
will be
fixed for the release.

Happy hacking,

-- Damien for the OCaml team
