Here is the latest OCaml Weekly News, for the week of March 27 to April 03, 2018.

I'm pleased to announce the first release of [OCaml-Swagger](https://github.com/andrenth/ocaml-swagger), a Swagger 2.0 API client generator for OCaml. While it doesn't currently implement 100% of the Swagger specification, it's complete enough to generate the client of at least one large API, the Kubernetes one, so I suspect it can be useful for other real world specs too.

I'm pleased to announce the first release of [Kubecaml](https://github.com/andrenth/kubecaml), a Kubernetes API client library for OCaml. The code is auto-generated from version 1.10.1 of the API by [OCaml-Swagger](https://github.com/andrenth/ocaml-swagger). The ocamldoc for Kubecaml is [also available](https://andrenth.github.io/kubecaml/kubecaml/index.html) online.

We (a subgroup of OCaml developers including Leo and myself) met in November to discuss many things, including modular implicits. Leo's plan is fairly ambitious, basically it involves making the module system of OCaml as powerful as general dependent types (has been done for module systems before, is not such a jump from the current system, but still requires quite some work to implement unification correctly), and there are still some orthogonal implementation questions that are still open for discussion. So more work is required, and since November everyone has been fairly busy with plenty of other things, so not much progress has been done I think. (If you know someone interested in both the metatheory of module systems and implementation questions, willing to do an internship or some other form of short-term contract paid on research salaries, I would wildly guess that there is space for a year of work on these questions.)
Archive: https://discuss.ocaml.org/t/ml-family-workshop-2018-call-for-presentations-deadline-may-31st/1804/1gasche announced:
The ML family workshop is colocated with the International Conference on Functional Programming (ICFP) each year. In 2018, it will be held in Saint Louis (MO), USA. ICFP and the ML workshops are research-oriented events where the community meets to discuss research ideas -- the co-located OCaml Workshop is more focused on the OCaml community and programmer experience. We are now inviting people to submit presentation proposals, to be evaluated and selected by the program committee. The deadline to submit a proposal is May 31st. See the [ML workshop 2018 webpage](https://sites.google.com/site/mlworkshoppe/workshops/ml2018) for more details, or its page [on the ICFP 2018 website](https://icfp18.sigplan.org/track/mlfamilyworkshop-2018-papers). The ML workshop is a nice place to discuss ideas in language design and programming language research, including ideas developed in languages that do not have "ML" in their name (we've had talks in the past on Scala, Rust, etc.). If you know of someone doing interesting programming-language work and who may be interested in attending ICFP, feel free to encourage them to submit. If you have any question regarding a potential submission, feel free to ask (here or by email). (One has to register to attend the workshop -- including presenters -- and pay a registration fee. It is possible to apply for funding, especially for students, to attend the event.)
