As a last test that everything is in order, we are publishing a first release candidate for OCaml 4.13.0. Compared to the last beta release, this release candidate includes one small fix for flambda, another for the compiler-libs, one regression fix when compiling C files with ocamlc or ocamlopt, and a handful of configuration and build system improvements (in particular on Windows). See the changelog below for more details. If you find any bugs, please report them here: https://github.com/ocaml/ocaml/issues The release of OCaml 4.13.0 is currently planned for mid-September. (An assembler generation bug was discovered this morning, we might release another release candidate next week once this bug is fixed.) Happy hacking, Florian Angeletti for the OCaml team. Installation instructions ---------------------------- The base compiler can be installed as an opam switch with the following commands opam update opam switch create 4.13.0~rc1 --repositories=default,beta=git+https://github.com/ocaml/ocaml-beta-repository.git If you want to tweak the configuration of the compiler, you can switch to the option variant with: opam update opam switch create <switch_name> --packages=ocaml-variants.4.13.0~rc1+options,<option_list> --repositories=default,beta=git+https://github.com/ocaml/ocaml-beta-repository.git where <option_list> is a comma separated list of ocaml-option-* packages. For instance, for a flambda and no-flat-float-array switch: opam switch create 4.13.0~rc1+flambda+nffa --packages=ocaml-variants.4.13.0~rc1+options,ocaml-option-flambda,ocaml-option-no-flat-float-array --repositories=default,beta=git+https://github.com/ocaml/ocaml-beta-repository.git All available options can be listed with "opam search ocaml-option".
