Dear OCaml users, 

The release of OCaml version 4.08.1 is imminent. 
This new bugfix release fixes some compilation failures in presence of "-pack", 
and some native-code alignment issues on ARM64, PPC64 and amd64. 
We have created a release candidate that you can test. 

The source code is available at these addresses: 

https://github.com/ocaml/ocaml/archive/4.08.1+rc1.tar.gz 
https://caml.inria.fr/pub/distrib/ocaml-4.08/ocaml-4.08.1+rc1.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+rc1 --repositories=default,ocaml-beta=git+https://github.com/ocaml/ocaml-beta-repository.git 

or 

opam switch create ocaml-variants.4.08.1+rc1+<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.
