There was a very long discussion on Functional Reactive Programming in this thread and in the following thread: http://groups.google.com/group/fa.caml/browse_thread/thread/8c45d2e11810d6c0# Richard Jones has also started a series of blog posts on the subject: http://rwmj.wordpress.com/2009/12/09/learning-functional-reactive-programming/

Prompted by Stefano Zacchiroli and Grégoire Henry's recent success in resurrecting CamlJava, I just migrated a number of my inactive OCaml side projects to the forge on ocamlcore.org: - CamlIDL (stub code generator for Caml/C interface) - CamlJava (low-level interface between Caml and Java through JNI) - CamlZIP (library to handle zip and gzip files) - Cryptokit (library of cryptographic primitives) - OCamlAgrep (library for string searching with errors) - OCamlMPI (Caml interface for the MPI parallel programming model) - SpamOracle (Bayesian mail filter) The purpose of this migration is to make it easy for others to participate in (or even take over) the maintenance and development of these projects, two tasks that I've very much neglected lately. So, if you find these projects useful and feel like participating in one way or another, just create an account on forge.ocamlcore.org and ask to join these projects. Also, the kind folks who package these projects are welcome to update their upstream URLs to point to the files on ocamlcore.org instead of my home pages: currently, they are identical, but further releases, if any, will be on ocamlcore.org.
Thanks to Alp Mestan, we now include in the Caml Weekly News the links to the recent posts from the ocamlcore planet blog at http://planet.ocamlcore.org/.
