Dear OCaml users, 

The release of OCaml version 4.08.1 is imminent. 
This new bugfix release fixes some compilation failures in presence of "-pack", 
and some native-code alignment issues on ARM64, PPC64 and amd64. 
We have created a release candidate that you can test. 

The source code is available at these addresses: 

https://github.com/ocaml/ocaml/archive/4.08.1+rc1.tar.gz 
https://caml.inria.fr/pub/distrib/ocaml-4.08/ocaml-4.08.1+rc1.tar.gz 

The compiler can also be installed as an OPAM switch with one of the 
following commands: 

opam switch create ocaml-variants.4.08.1+rc1 --repositories=default,ocaml-beta=git+https://github.com/ocaml/ocaml-beta-repository.git 

or 

opam switch create ocaml-variants.4.08.1+rc1+<VARIANT> --repositories=default,ocaml-beta=git+https://github.com/ocaml/ocaml-beta-repository.git 

where you replace <VARIANT> with one of these: 
afl 
default-unsafe-string 
force-safe-string 
flambda 
fp 
fp+flambda 

We want to know about all bugs. Please report them here: 
https://github.com/ocaml/ocaml/issues 

Happy hacking, 
— Florian Angeletti, for the OCaml team.

Dear all,

The Docker containers in the opam repository CI [1,2] have all now been rebuilt to reflect the latest contents of the 4.08 branch as per Florian's message.  This means that your 4.08 CI tests will now reflect the bug fixes below, and so (for example) nocrypto should be installable now.

[2] https://github.com/ocaml/infrastructure/wiki/Containers

regards,
Anil

Dear OCaml users,

The release of OCaml version 4.08.1 is almost here, we have created
a second release candidate that you can test.

This new release candidate combines the rc1 fix for compilation failures
in presence of "-pack" reported by Fabian @copy (breaking nocrypto),
with a new fix for dynlinking failures in bytecode mode reported
by Andre Maroneze (breaking Frama-C).

The source code is available at these addresses:

  https://github.com/ocaml/ocaml/archive/4.08.1+rc2.tar.gz
  https://caml.inria.fr/pub/distrib/ocaml-4.08/ocaml-4.08.1+rc2.tar.gz

The compiler can also be installed as an OPAM switch with one of the
following commands:

opam switch create ocaml-variants.4.08.1+rc2 
--repositories=default,ocaml-beta=git+https://github.com/ocaml/ocaml-beta-repository.git

or

opam switch create ocaml-variants.4.08.1+rc2+<VARIANT> 
--repositories=default,ocaml-beta=git+https://github.com/ocaml/ocaml-beta-repository.git

  where you replace <VARIANT> with one of these:
    afl
    default-unsafe-string
    force-safe-string
    flambda
    fp
    fp+flambda

We want to know about all bugs. Please report them here:
