Dear OCaml users,
We have the pleasure of celebrating the birthday of Alexander Fleming
by announcing the release of OCaml version 4.08.1.
This is a bug-fix release, which fixes compilation failures in presence of
“-pack” (breaking nocrypto), and dynlinking failures (breaking Frama-C)
(see also the list of changes below).
It is (or soon will be) available as a set of OPAM switches,
and as a source download here:
