I put the archive on the web. Code is under a BSD license.

Code provided as is. I mean... really. ;-)

OCaml 3.11.0 release candidate


Damien Doligez announced:
We are closing in on version 3.11.0.  A Release Candidate is now available.
If there are no show-stoppers in this RC, then 3.11.0 will be officially
released next week.

The release candidate is available here:

As usual, we need a few brave souls to try and install it on their
favourite architecture and report the result to me.
Xavier Leroy then added:
The documentation for 3.11 is also available from the same place.  The 
HTML manual can be browsed online at

:set foldmethod=expr
:set foldexpr=getline(v:lnum)=~'^=\\{78}$'?'<1':1

If you know of a better way, please let me know.
