I'm very proud to announce Ocamlnet 3.0.0, a completely overhauled version of Ocamlnet. List of major changes: * Port to Win32 (as outlined in the blog article http://blog.camlcity.org/blog/ocamlnet3_win32.html) * The new Rpc_proxy layer (as described in http://blog.camlcity.org/blog/ocamlnet3_ha.html) * Extensions of Netplex (Netplex_sharedvar etc.) * New implementation of the Shell library for starting subprocesses * Uniform debugging with Netlog.Debug * Exception printers (Netexn) * Coordination of signal handling in Netsys_signal * New foundation for Unixqueue via pollsets * Extended Unixqueue engines (e.g. Uq_io) * More system calls in netsys * Camlboxes as an efficient way of message passing between processes * The netcgi1 library has been dropped in favor of netcgi2 There are also a lot of minor changes. Some of the changes are incompatible with code written for Ocamlnet 2, but experience shows that this rarely creates problems.

For the 3.11 release it is planned to stick to ocamlnet-2.2.9, and to offer an optional upgrade to ocamlnet-3.0.0. (See separate message in godi-list.)Later on, Gerd Stolpmann announced:
unfortunately there were two bugs in this version (one build bug, one serious race condition), both fixed in 3.0.1 (available from the same place). Also, I wrote an/another article about the changes in Ocamlnet 3: http://blog.camlcity.org/blog/ocamlnet3_release.html

I am looking for any project (written in ocaml or any other language !) compiled with ocamlbuild with the source publicly available (under any license, it is not for modification nor publication). If you know any of them, could you please drop me a line with the name of the project and the link to it? (please reply only to me to not pollute the caml list!)Later on, he added:
Thanks to all who already replied to this mail! I updated the list on the ocamlbuil wiki . I think I only put publicly available projects, so I believe it should not be a problem. But if I'm mistaken, please drop me a line and I'll remove your project from the list immediately. And if you know other projects, my email is still open ;) Thanks again Alexandre Pilkiewicz  http://brion.inria.fr/gallium/index.php/Projects_using_ocamlbuild
