Merlin 3 on Native Windows

Merlin’s development repo now has support for native Windows building again (see the PR for gory details). You can either build it from sources directly, or pin it in opam (opam pin add merlin --dev-repo).

As an aside, I wrote a little blog post about some of the fun challenges which crop up when working on these cross-platform projects.


Very nice. It would be really great if we could distill some of this stuff (particularly the IPC) into either stdlib functions or a library, so that others can do this work in OCaml without the pain you had to go through.
