[ANN] DkML 2.1.1

Use https://ocaml.org/install if you are a first-time user (the install steps haven’t changed).

The upgrade steps and release notes are available at DkML 2.1.1 · DkML / Distributions / DkML · GitLab. For those who are on 2.1.0, the upgrade is the following in PowerShell:

1..6 | % {  @("bash","sh","with-dkml","ocamllsp","git","opam","dune","ocamlrun") | % { taskkill /F /IM "$_.exe" }; Start-Sleep 1 }
winget upgrade dkml

Major Changes

  • The opam repository is fixed to commit 6c3f73f42890cc19f81eb1dec8023c2cd7b8b5cd for stability. If you need a new version of a package and can’t wait for the next version of DkML, you can pin that package’s url (recommended) or float the opam repository with opam repository set-url default git+https://github.com/ocaml/opam-repository.git#main.
  • Windows SDK 10.0.22621.0 and VC 17.8 (14.38) added to allowed list. This supports Visual Studio 2022, especially for GitLab CI.
  • New supported package: tiny_httpd
