We would like to announce the release of Bisect_ppx 1.0.0, a code coverage tool for OCaml with appealing reports: https://github.com/rleonid/bisect_ppx You can see a live coverage report here: http://rleonid.github.io/bisect_ppx/coverage/ Reports can also be submitted to Coveralls.io using ocveralls . See an example here . Bisect_ppx is a fork of the original Bisect by Xavier Clerc, with extensive further development. Differences from Bisect, and from earlier versions of Bisect_ppx, include: - the nicer and more legible HTML reports, - more thorough instrumentation, now including nested functions and or-patterns, - improved compatibility with other PPX rewriters, - an Ocamlbuild plugin, - many bugfixes, and - usage, performance, and documentation improvements. Bisect_ppx was originally forked to update and maintain Bisect's PPX mode, with the OCaml community moving to PPX. Bisect_ppx does not have Bisect's Camlp4 dependency. We do not believe that the original Bisect is being actively maintained. Regards, Anton & Leonid P.S. If you are working on a project that uses Bisect_ppx, please let us know! : https://github.com/sagotch/ocveralls : https://coveralls.io/builds/4913198/source?filename=src%2Fsyntax%2FinstrumentPpx.ml

We just released core, ppx_jane and ppx_bin_prot 113.24.01 to fix some issues. Changes: - update corebuild to use ppx-jane instead of the old camlp4 extensions - update META of ppx_jane and ppx_bin_prot so they can be used with ocamlbuild or the toplevel

I would like to announce releases 0.6 of Lambda Soup, the CSS-selector-based HTML scraper and rewriter, and 0.7 of Markup.ml, the streaming HTML and XML parser. https://github.com/aantron/lambda-soup https://github.com/aantron/markup.ml The main change in Lambda Soup is that is is now based on Markup.ml instead of Ocamlnet. As a result, - parsing now conforms closely to the HTML5 specification, including error recovery; - HTML entity references are translated; - encodings are detected automatically, Lambda Soup is no longer limited to ASCII-compatible input, and all strings emitted by the API are in UTF-8; and - empty attributes are handled correctly. Lambda Soup can now accept and emit Markup.ml parsing signal streams, so it can be used for filters, without having to parse directly from or serialize all the way to strings. It can also be used safely with XML. Parsing is, however, much slower – this depends on Markup.ml being optimized in the future. The HTML parser in Markup.ml, in turn, now implements the adoption agency algorithm, an error recovery algorithm from the HTML5 specification that is ill-suited for streaming parsers. It is also more thouroughly tested, and has received many bugfixes. I must thank Jerome Vouillon and Leo Wzukw for bug reports. They are greatly appreciated.
Here is a sneak peek at some potential future features of the Ocaml compiler, discussed by their implementers in these Github Pull Requests. Augment details shown by -config with list of applied patches https://github.com/ocaml/ocaml/pull/465
