I'm pleased to announce the release 1.9.17 of Cameleon. *** What is Cameleon ? Cameleon is a set of libraries and tools aiming to become an integrated development environment for OCaml. The libraries included are used by the tools but can be used for other projects. The interface is based on Lablgtk2. A description of each tool and library is available on the site. *** What's new ? A source code editor, called Chamo, was added. It can be fully configured and extended using OCaml code evaluated at run time (same as lisp for emacs). The FAQ about Chamo contains useful information: http://home.gna.org/cameleon/faq.fr.html#faq:chamo *** Where is it available ? From the Cameleon web site: http://home.gna.org/cameleon/

Actually, in our LibMojave (which is what OMake uses) we have bindings for: - FAM - Gamin (using either the generic FAM interface, or taking advantage of Gamin extensions) - kqueue (FreeBSD, OS X) - inotify (Linux) - ??? (Win32) - not sure what exactly is used there In all five cases, we provide the _same_ fam-style interface on the OCaml side. We also have OMake autoconf-style scripts that can detect which of the fours notification mechanisms is present on a specific machine and use the appropriate one. > Sounds more like a bad thing than a good thing to me. > Direct inotify binding are much smaller/simpler anyway. That might be true, but only if you happen to be on a machine that provides inotify. We do utilize inotify if it is present, but we also have an option of using one of the other four when there is no inotify.

Here is a quick trick to help you read this CWN if you are viewing it using vim (version 6 or greater).
If you know of a better way, please let me know.
If you happen to miss a CWN, you can send me a message and I'll mail it to you, or go take a look at the archive or the RSS feed of the archives.
