Dear OCaml users,

The release of OCaml version 4.08.1 is almost here, we have created
a second release candidate that you can test.

This new release candidate combines the rc1 fix for compilation failures
in presence of "-pack" reported by Fabian @copy (breaking nocrypto),
with a new fix for dynlinking failures in bytecode mode reported
by Andre Maroneze (breaking Frama-C).

The source code is available at these addresses:

  https://github.com/ocaml/ocaml/archive/4.08.1+rc2.tar.gz
  https://caml.inria.fr/pub/distrib/ocaml-4.08/ocaml-4.08.1+rc2.tar.gz

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

opam switch create ocaml-variants.4.08.1+rc2 
--repositories=default,ocaml-beta=git+https://github.com/ocaml/ocaml-beta-repository.git

or

opam switch create ocaml-variants.4.08.1+rc2+<VARIANT> 
--repositories=default,ocaml-beta=git+https://github.com/ocaml/ocaml-beta-repository.git

  where you replace <VARIANT> with one of these:
    afl
    default-unsafe-string
    force-safe-string
    flambda
    fp
    fp+flambda

We want to know about all bugs. Please report them here:
  https://github.com/ocaml/ocaml/issues

Happy hacking,
— Florian Angeletti, for the OCaml team.
