I'd like to inform you the updates of two projects: Enhtop for OCaml 3.11 ===================== This is a patch contributed by Peng Zang (thanks!) bringing enhtop  up to date with OCaml 3.11. There is an additional "#tellall" primitive from Peng's enhtop+  doing partial matching over OCaml identifiers. Please also take a look at his SOLID (Superior OcamL Interactive Development-mode) project . Enhtop will be maintained, with no additional features, until the publicity of OCamli . Camlish v0.03 ============= Camlish  has been updated to version 0.03 with some bugs fixed (reported by Keith Waclena and Peng Zang, thanks!). Note however, the feature of direct shell command execution will be removed from future releases, since I feel that Camlish should be a simple library dealing with the interaction between OCaml and shell and nothing else. On the other hand, I've added this feature to OCamli  as it seems much better suited there: as a feature of toplevel. With OCamli, one can execute any shell commands as toplevel primitives with references to variables from the OCaml world.

I am pleased to announce that the first public release of the Diamondback Ruby static type inference system is now available! http://www.cs.umd.edu/projects/PL/druby/ The Diamondback Ruby (DRuby) project aims add a typing discipline to Ruby that is simple for programmers to use, flexible enough to handle common idioms, that provides programmers with additional checking where they want it, and reverts to run-time checks where necessary. DRuby is implemented in OCaml and its type system is built on top of a more general framework for program analysis of Ruby programs. Our framework includes its own GLR parser (thanks to dypgen), a simplified intermediate language, pretty printers for emitting syntactically valid Ruby code, and a library for instrumenting and profiling Ruby executions. While the current release is tailored toward end-users of the type system, we plan to distribute the underlying analysis framework separately in the future. As such, I would like to invite anyone who is interested in exploring program analysis for Ruby to consider using DRuby. We have a mailing list setup on our website for general discussion and future release announcements.

Hydro 0.7 is released. Hydro is an independent implementation of the ICE middleware (originally by ZeroC, see zeroc.com). It is now a bit more complete: * The hydrogen generator supports a faster way of doing the language mapping (to be enabled with the -dc switch), now bypassing the value tree representation in most cases. * It is possible to register Hydro servers at an ICE registry. * Support for "stringified proxies" * Hydromon for checking the lifeliness of remote servers Additionally, there are many smaller changes and bugfixes. Get Hydro at http://oss.wink.com/hydro. There is also a GODI package for it. Hydro is a development effort by Mylife.com (formerly Wink Technologies). Hydro is used in the people search component to connect the various server with each other.
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.
