Here is the latest Caml Weekly News, for the week of November 15 to 22, 2011.
Archive: https://sympa-roc.inria.fr/wws/arc/caml-list/2011-11/msg00088.htmlDeep in this thread about Windows Ocaml installers, Dmitry Grebeniuk suggested:
Also you can use overbld project at http://overbld.sourceforge.net/ , it provides windows-style installers both for binary and source distribution of OCaml/mingw, and it also contains a bunch of useful ocaml libraries and tools. (direct http links for downloading installers are provided too.)Paolo Donadeo asked and Sylvain Le Gall replied:
> What about the OCaml Windows Installer project? Is it still active? > > http://forge.ocamlcore.org/projects/ocaml-installer/ > I would like to say yes, but this won't be true. Maybe one day we will resume the dev.Sylvain Le Gall then asked and Jonathan Protzenko replied:
> BTW, any good advice to provide a link to a Windows binary installer ? > (http://yquem.inria.fr/~protzenk/caml-installer.html) This is now the official installer for Windows (linked from the OCaml download page) as far as I'm concerned.

I did some initial work to let ocamlopt emit position-independent code on ARM, which enables support for natdynlink on ARM. The patch and additional information is available at http://caml.inria.fr/mantis/view.php?id=5404 with even more information at http://caml.inria.fr/mantis/view.php?id=5049 So far I've tested the patch with QEMU and a NanosG20 ARM Board, and the patch seems to work and doesn't seem to cause noticeable performance hits. However, it would be useful to get some more testing and feedback. The latest version is always available from the natdynlink-arm branch of my ocaml-experimental repository at https://github.com/bmeurer/ocaml-experimental/tree/natdynlink-arm
