Thank you, Xavier, for this reminder.

When founding LexiFi more than 22 years ago, we decided to bet all our technological future on OCaml.
We never had to regret it.

Many thanks to all contributors, may they be academics, private enthusiasts, companies, or related institutions.

OCaml is the tool that makes our day-to-day programming work fun and contributes giving LexiFi a clear advantage over many of our competitors.

Happy birthday, OCaml!

Jean-Marc Eber, founder and CEO, LexiFi

Dear OCaml enthusiasts,

25 years ago, on May 9th 1996, release 1.00 of the Objective Caml language and system was announced:

It was already the consolidation of many years of work, integrating Jérôme Vouillon and Didier Rémy's work on objects and classes within Caml Special Light, itself a combination of my work on modules and native-code compilation with earlier code taken from Caml Light, especially Damien Doligez's GC.
Little did I know that O(bjective) Caml would still be there 25 years later!

A lot happened during this time, including several major evolutions of the language, and, much more importantly, the emergence of a community of users and an ecosystem of tools and libraries.  But maybe this was just the beginning for something even bigger?  We'll see...

Happy birthday, OCaml!
- Xavier Leroy
