Last time I updated the OCaml package, Yaakov (Cygwin/X) wrote:

While there not be much OCaml code in the distro, I have dozens of libraries in Ports which need to be rebuilt.  Next time, could you please give me some rebuild time before stabilizing a new version of OCaml?

So, here it is: I have a new version of the OCaml package (4.01.0-1), both for 32 and 64 bits. I have uploaded the files to, but I haven't put the !ready files yet.

Both packages are marked as "test":

- For 32 bits, because I don't want to hurt you again. I'm guessing that a "test" version of the package will let you recompile the libraries in Ports, and then when you tell me you're ready, I'll make a "curr" version.

- For 64 bits, because we don't have Flexdll yet, so dynlink is not supported, which means that many OCaml programs won't work. I've already prodded the Flexdll upstream. I'm publishing this because it's the best we can have on 64-bit for the moment.

Both packages include labltk.

How do we proceed? Should I send these !ready files?
