I just released findlib-1.7.0, with: - new command "ocamlfind printppx" (by Hendrik Tews) - support for raw_spacetime (with Mark Shinwell) - some bugfixes See the project page for more information: http://projects.camlcity.org/projects/findlib.htmlBernhard Schommer then said and Gerd Stolpmann replied:
> it seems that the raw_spacetime folder is missing in site-lib-src. > The configure script complains about this. Correct, there is an error. Released findlib-1.7.1 with the missing files.

A new release of Merlin is available on opam. It can be installed with `opam install merlin` or built from sources, available at https://github.com/the-lambda-church/merlin . Changes in version 2.5.1: * Improved handling of case sensitivity on macOS. * Gerd Stolpmann contributed support for customizing findlib package directories. This is achieved by the FINDLIB_PATH directive in .merlin (it corresponds to the path variable in findlib.conf, and OCAMLPATH environment variable for ocamlfind). * For convenience with Bucklescript FFI, Merlin no longer checks that externals are functions. Version 2.5.2 added support for OCaml 4.04 and fixed a lot of bug. As always you can find a changelog at https://github.com/the-lambda-church/merlin/blob/master/CHANGELOG . Thanks to Gerd Stolpmann and to all our previous contributors. The project is also getting closer to OCaml Labs. Many thanks to Gemma for helping us to improve the development and release process. The Merlin team

New version of llpp (tagged v23) is now available at: * http://repo.or.cz/w/llpp.git (has "tutorial" videos) * https://github.com/moosotc/llpp/ (has a bugtracker) ============================================================================ Blurb llpp is a graphical PDF viewer, which aims to superficially resemble less(1) ============================================================================ Changes * additional remote commands * user supplied CSS for HTML/EPUB * horizontal preloading * optional EGL support * dictionary lookup http://repo.or.cz/llpp.git/commit/29916e0cadcdf0ee3136fc3b4655b3c8b0d01a7b * scripts/styles to comfortably convert/read wikipedia material * zooming improvements (pivot zoom etc) * 4.04.0 `-warn-error +a' fix (Tuncer Ayaz) * bugfixes * work on energy consumption reduction * synced with mupdf 1.10 that boasts: BMP, SVG, GIF, FB2 suport internal links in HTML/EPUB more - http://git.ghostscript.com/?p=mupdf.git;a=blob;f=CHANGES;hb=1.10 ============================================================================ macOS Nicolás Ojeda Bär made llpp run on macOS "natively" (i.e. using cocoa) https://github.com/nojb/llpp The port is mostly functional, but: a) there are some rough edges b) few things probably do not quite work the way macOS aficionados expect them to c) it lags a bit behind llpp's master Don't let the above discourage you though. Big thanks to Nicolás for coding, Nils Becker and Денис "сами Мы из Нижнего и у Нас три высшего" Барахтанов for testing, suggestions and constructive critique.
