Dear OCaml developers,

We are happy to announce the v0.12 release of Jane Street packages!

This release comes with a lot of changes, as we ship 19 new
packages, and have enhanced and refactored a number of existing
ones. The documentation for this release is available on our
website:

  https://ocaml.janestreet.com/ocaml-core/v0.12/doc/

The remainder of this mail highlights the main changes since the v0.11
release; we hope it will be useful to developers in the process of
migrating to the new version. A comprehensive change log is available
on discuss (it turned out to be too big for this list):
