Dear OCaml users,

The release of OCaml 4.11.0 is approaching.
As one step further in this direction, we have published a second beta
release. This new release fixes an MSVC-specific runtime issue.

The compatibility of the opam ecosystem with OCaml 4.11.0 is currently quite
good, and it should be possible to test this beta without too much trouble.

The source code is available at these addresses:

 https://github.com/ocaml/ocaml/archive/4.11.0+beta2.tar.gz
 https://caml.inria.fr/pub/distrib/ocaml-4.11/ocaml-4.11.0+beta2.tar.gz

The compiler can also be installed as an OPAM switch with one of the
following commands:

opam switch create ocaml-variants.4.11.0+beta2 --repositories=default,beta=git+https://github.com/ocaml/ocaml-beta-repository.git

or

opam switch create ocaml-variants.4.11.0+beta2+<VARIANT> --repositories=default,beta=git+https://github.com/ocaml/ocaml-beta-repository.git

 where you replace <VARIANT> with one of these:
   afl
   flambda
   fp
   fp+flambda

We would love to hear about any bugs. Please report them here:
 https://github.com/ocaml/ocaml/issues

If you are interested by the list of new features, and the on-going list
of bug fixes the
updated change log for OCaml 4.11.0 is available at:

  https://github.com/ocaml/ocaml/blob/4.11/Changes

Compared to the previous beta release, the exhaustive list of changes
is as follows:

Runtime

- #9714, #9724: Use the C++ alignas keyword when compiling in C++.
   Fixes a bug with MSVC C++ 2015/2017. Add a terminator to the
   `caml_domain_state` structure to better ensure that members are
   correctly spaced.
   (Antonin Décimo, review by David Allsopp and Xavier Leroy)

Manual and documentation

- #8644: fix formatting comment about @raise in stdlib's mli files
   (Élie Brami, review by David Allsopp)

- #9712: Update the version format to allow "~".
   The new format is "major.minor[.patchlevel][(+|~)additional-info]",
   for instance "4.12.0~beta1+flambda".
   This is a documentation-only change for the 4.11 branch, the new format
   will be used starting with the 4.12 branch.
   (Florian Angeletti, review by Damien Doligez and Xavier Leroy)

Happy hacking,

Dear OCaml users,

The release of OCaml 4.11.0 is near.
As one step further in this direction, we have published a third
and potentially last beta release.

This new release fixes an infrequent bug in the experimental best-fit 
allocator
and an issue with floating-point software emulation in the ARM EABI port.
On the opam ecosystem side, merlin is now available for this new version 
of OCaml.
The compatibility of the opam ecosystem with OCaml 4.11.0 is currently
good, and it should be possible to test this beta without too much trouble.

The source code is available at these addresses:

  https://github.com/ocaml/ocaml/archive/4.11.0+beta3.tar.gz
  https://caml.inria.fr/pub/distrib/ocaml-4.11/ocaml-4.11.0+beta3.tar.gz

The compiler can also be installed as an OPAM switch with one of the
following commands:

opam update
opam switch create ocaml-variants.4.11.0+beta3 
--repositories=default,beta=git+https://github.com/ocaml/ocaml-beta-repository.git

or

opam update
opam switch create ocaml-variants.4.11.0+beta3+<VARIANT> 
--repositories=default,beta=git+https://github.com/ocaml/ocaml-beta-repository.git

  where you replace <VARIANT> with one of these: afl, flambda, fp, 
fp+flambda

We would love to hear about any bugs. Please report them here:
  https://github.com/ocaml/ocaml/issues

Compared to the previous beta release, the exhaustive list of changes
is as follows:

Runtime:

- #9736, #9749: Compaction must start in a heap where all free blocks are
   blue, which was not the case with the best-fit allocator.
   (Damien Doligez, report and review by Leo White)

+ #9316, #9443, #9463, #9782: Use typing information from Clambda
    for mutable Cmm variables.
    (Stephen Dolan, review by Vincent Laviron, Guillaume Bury, Xavier Leroy,
    and Gabriel Scherer; temporary bug report by Richard Jones)

Manual and documentation:

- #9541: Add a documentation page for the instrumented runtime;
   additional changes to option names in the instrumented runtime.
   (Enguerrand Decorne, review by Anil Madhavapeddy, Gabriel Scherer,
    Daniel Bünzli, David Allsopp, Florian Angeletti,
    and Sébastien Hinderer)

Entries marked with "+" were already present in previous alphas, but
they have been complemented by new bug fixes.

If you are interested by the list of new features, and the nearly final list
of bug fixes the updated change log for OCaml 4.11.0 is available at:

Dear OCaml users,

The release of OCaml version 4.11.0 is imminent. We have created a 
release candidate that you can test.
For users of the beta releases, this release candidate is exactly the 
same as the last beta release except for a minor fix for the #show 
directive in the toplevel.

The source code is available at these addresses:

  https://github.com/ocaml/ocaml/archive/4.11.0+rc2.tar.gz
  https://caml.inria.fr/pub/distrib/ocaml-4.11/ocaml-4.11.0+rc2.tar.gz

The compiler can be installed as an OPAM switch with the following commands:

$ opam update
$ opam switch create ocaml-variants.4.11.0+rc2 
--repositories=default,beta=git://github.com/ocaml/ocaml-beta-repository.git

or with

$ opam update
$ opam switch create ocaml-variants.4.11.0+rc2+<VARIANT> 
--repositories=default,beta=git+https://github.com/ocaml/ocaml-beta-repository.git

where <VARIANT> is replaced with one of these: afl, flambda, fp, fp+flambda

The opam ecosystem is in good shape for this release candidate.
For maximum compatibility, you can use the following opam-alpha-repository:

$ opam repo add alpha 
https://github.com/kit-ty-kate/opam-alpha-repository.git

during your tests. This repository integrate not-yet-upstreamed or 
unreleased fixes to various packages.
With this repository all except a handful of packages are compatible 
with this release candidate.

Using opam-alpha-repository: all core tools (see the meta issue 
https://github.com/ocaml/opam-repository/issues/16539) – including 
Merlin – work, except for ocaml-lsp-server (which is not officially 
released yet and only relevant for Windows users).

All packages except 7 over the 2134 available packages in 
opam-repository that were compatible with OCaml 4.10 are also compatible 
with OCaml 4.11.

Given that the release is very close and the state of the community 
packages stable enough, we would like to encourage people to give it a 
try before the release, especially for those on non-x86_64 architectures.

Happy hacking,
Florian Angeletti for the OCaml team

   (David Allsopp, review by Sébastien Hinderer)

- #9259: Made `Ephemeron.blit_key` and `Weak.blit` faster. They are now
   linear in the size of the range being copied instead of depending on the
   total sizes of the ephemerons or weak arrays involved.
   (Arseniy Alekseyev, design advice by Leo White, review by François Bobot

   symbol in both the static and the dynamic symbol tables.
   (Sébastien Hinderer, review by Gabriel Scherer and David Allsopp)

* #9197: remove compatibility logic from #244 that was designed to
   synchronize toplevel printing margins with Format.std_formatter,
   but also resulted in unpredictable/fragile changes to formatter
   margins.
   Setting the margins on the desired formatters should now work.
   typically on `Format.std_formatter`.
   Note that there currently is no robust way to do this from the
   toplevel, as applications may redirect toplevel printing. In
   a compiler/toplevel driver, one should instead access
   `Location.formatter_for_warnings`; it is not currently exposed
   to the toplevel.

   (Hikaru Yoshimura)

- #9414: testsuite, ocamltest: keep test artifacts only on failure.
   Use KEEP_TEST_DIR_ON_SUCCESS=1 to keep all artifacts.
   (Gabriel Scherer, review by Sébastien Hinderer)

- #9482, #9492: use diversions (@file) to work around OS limitations
   on length of Sys.command argument.
   (Xavier Leroy, report by Jérémie Dimino, review by David Allsopp)

- #9141: beginning of the ocamltest reference manual
   (Sébastien Hinderer, review by Gabriel Scherer and Thomas Refis)

- #9228: Various Map documentation improvements: add missing key argument in
   the 'merge' example; clarify the relationship between input and 
output keys
   in 'union'; note that find and find_opt return values, not bindings.

    Daniel Bünzli, David Allsopp, Florian Angeletti,
    and Sébastien Hinderer)

### Compiler user-interface and warnings:

- GPR#1664: make -output-complete-obj link the runtime native c 
libraries when
   building shared libraries like `-output-obj`.
   (Florian Angeletti, review by Nicolás Ojeda Bär)

* #7678, #8631: ocamlc -c and ocamlopt -c pass same switches to the C
   compiler when compiling .c files (in particular, this means ocamlopt
   passes -fPIC on systems requiring it for shared library support).

   for instance "4.12.0~beta1+flambda".
   This is a documentation-only change for the 4.11 branch, the new format
   will be used starting with the 4.12 branch.
   (Florian Angeletti, review by Damien Doligez and Xavier Leroy)
