OCaml 4.01.0 is a new major release of the language.
I'm not expecting any incompatibilities, but it will require a mass
rebuild of the 100 or so Fedora OCaml packages in Rawhide, which I
will do this weekend.
I'm also planning to:
- update the ARM code generator
- enable debuginfo generation, since the OCaml compiler has generated
useful debuginfo for a while now
- tidy up the spec files and try to come up with a modern set of
packaging guidelines, since the de-facto packaging rules have
diverged a little from the guidelines published back in 2008
For people not using OCaml (or even those that are) there shouldn't be
any significant disruption.
