I am thus happy to announce the first alpha release for OCaml 4.13.0 . This alpha version is here to help fellow hackers join us early in our bug hunting and opam ecosystem fixing fun (see below for the installation instructions). You can see the progress on this front at https://github.com/ocaml/opam-repository/issues/18791 . If you find any bugs, please report them here: https://github.com/ocaml/ocaml/issues Once most major OCaml tools are supported, we will switch to beta releases. The full release is expected to happen in September. If you are interested by the ongoing list of new features and bug fixes, the updated change log for OCaml 4.13.0 is available at: https://github.com/ocaml/ocaml/blob/4.13/Changes Note that there is still some on-going work to support improved polling points in preparation for OCaml multicore. Another alpha release will be published once this work is merged. 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~alpha1 --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~alpha1+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~alpha1+flambda+nffa --packages=ocaml-variants.4.13.0~alpha1+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". If you want to test this version, it is advised to install the alpha opam repository https://github.com/kit-ty-kate/opam-alpha-repository with opam repo add alpha git://github.com/kit-ty-kate/opam-alpha-repository.git This alpha repository contains various fixes in the process of being upstreamed.
