Question about merlin and ocaml

Context: getting started with Ocaml at a new Mac, performed the following steps:

  • Installed opam

Using spam, installed

  • utop
  • dune

When I tried to install merlin, I see:

$ opam install merlin
The following dependencies couldn't be met:
  - merlin → ocaml < 4.09
      base of this switch (use `--unlock-base' to force)

Is there a recommended way around this? Is version 4.09 too new? Is a new merlin release imminent? :slight_smile:

Much thanks,

The 4.09 release is still a bit too new for this reason. A new merlin release is in progress but not imminent.


Thanks, switching to 4.08.1 worked !
