Dear OCaml users, 

The release of OCaml 4.13.0 is imminent. 
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". 

The source code for the beta release is also available at these addresses: 

https://github.com/ocaml/ocaml/archive/4.13.0-rc1.tar.gz 
https://caml.inria.fr/pub/distrib/ocaml-4.13/ocaml-4.13.0~rc1.tar.gz
