I've just added versions of pa_oo and pa_polymap working with 3.10. Sorry for the long delay... http://www.math.nagoya-u.ac.jp/~garrigue/code/ocaml.html

I am happy to announce that the Sexplib library has been ported to OCaml 3.10: http://ocaml.info/home/ocaml_sources.html#sexplib310 It now depends on the type-conv library, which factors out common functionality for future type conversion libraries (e.g. an upcoming type-safe and extremely efficient binary protocol library): http://ocaml.info/home/ocaml_sources.html#type-conv Sexplib is also available through Godi, which will automatically resolve the dependency on type-conv. The new release also comes with several bug fixes, performance improvements and small feature extensions. Here is a short description of Sexplib (from the README): This library contains functionality for parsing and pretty-printing S-expressions. In addition to that it contains an extremely useful preprocessing module for Camlp4, which can be used to automatically generate code from type definitions for efficiently converting OCaml-values to S-expressions and vice versa. In combination with the parsing and pretty-printing functionality this frees users from having to write their own I/O-routines for datastructures they define. Possible errors during automatic conversions from S-expressions to OCaml-values are reported in a very human-readable way. Another module in the library allows you to extract and replace sub-expressions in S-expressions.
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.
