[ANN] New release of Menhir (20181113)

Hello,

I would like to announce a new release of Menhir, 20181113. It is
available via opam (opam update && opam install menhir).

https://gitlab.inria.fr/fpottier/menhir/blob/master/CHANGES.md

The main change is an experimental new syntax for rules. The new syntax is
slightly more pleasant and powerful than the old syntax. The old syntax
remains available; the user chooses between the two syntaxes on a per-rule
basis.

This blog post presents a couple demos that use the new syntax:

For expert users, I have also written a brief a summary of the differences
between the old and new syntaxes:

Happy parsing,
