We're happy to inform you that the first alpha version of OCaml Batteries Included has just been released. You may find the source on the Forge , as well as the release notes , and you can browse the documentation online, including a detailed presentation of what OCaml Batteries Included is all about . A GODI package has also been uploaded for OCaml 3.10 . The list of features is a tad too long for detailing it here. Let's just say that there are new or improved data structures, i/o, unicode ropes, syntax extensions, primitives for invoking some of the tools of the toolchain, etc. It's alpha-level code, so use with caution, and not all the features we have in mind have been implemented yet. On the other hand, any form of feedback is greatly appreciated.  http://forge.ocamlcore.org/frs/?group_id=17&release_id=44  http://forge.ocamlcore.org/frs/shownotes.php?release_id=44  http://forge.ocamlcore.org/docman/?group_id=17Stefano Zacchiroli then announced:
