Updated lang/ocaml to version 4.14.0.

This is a long-overdue update, so there are many changes. Details are in
the Changes file in the distribution.

The mk/ocaml file will be moved to lang/ocaml and the logic for selecting
whether to use the native-code compiler will be factored out into to avoid duplications.

This is the final version before OCaml 5.0 arrives, which has
multicore support and should be a major change from the 4.x versions.

Updated lang/ocaml to 4.08.1.

4.08.1 is a bugfix release, fixing compilation failures in presence of the
-pack option, and dynlinking failures.

Highlights in 4.08.0 are:

  applicative paths in signatures.
* A new notion of (user-defined) "alerts" generalizes the deprecated
* New modules in the standard library: Fun, Bool, Int, Option, Result.
* A significant number of new functions in Float, including FMA support,
  and a new Float.Array submodule.
* Source highlighting for errors and warnings in batch mode.
* Many error messages were improved.
* Improved AFL instrumentation for objects and lazy values.

* Unix.isatty now works under the native Windows ports
* strings and bytes are distinguishable in bytecode
* Module aliases are no longer removed in 'module type of' and
  'with module'
* soundness bugfix with non-generalised type variables and local modules
* Ident.t is now abstract and immutable
* only allow directives with filename and at the begining of the line

Updated package lang/ocaml to version 4.06.

Changes are many and can be found at

One change that breaks a lot of packages is that the safe-string compiler
option is now enabled by default, which means that all modules need to use
immutable strings (or explicitly use the bytes type).

Fix indentation in files.

The actual fix as been done by "pkglint -F */*/", and was
reviewed manually.

There are some .include lines that still are indented with zero spaces
although the surrounding .if is indented. This is existing practice.

(Changes that can break existing programs are marked with a "*")

### Language features:

### Code generation and optimizations:

- M#7201, G#954: Correct wrong optimisation of "0 / <expr>"
  and "0 mod <expr>" in the case when <expr> was a non-constant
  evaluating to zero
  (Mark Shinwell, review by Gabriel Scherer, Leo White and Xavier Leroy)

- M#7357, G#832: Improve compilation time for toplevel
  include(struct ... end : sig ... end)
  (Alain Frisch, report by Hongbo Zhang, review by Jacques Garrigue)

  cases of "/" and "mod"
  (Mark Shinwell, report by Jan Mitgaard)

- G#504: Instrumentation support for fuzzing with afl-fuzz.
  (Stephen Dolan, review by Alain Frisch, Pierre Chambart, Mark

  `void caml_{failwith,invalid_argument}_value(value msg)`
  in addition to
  `void caml_{failwith,invalid_argument}(char const *msg)`.
  The previous functions would not free their message argument, so
  were inconvient for dynamically-allocated messages; the messages
  passed to the new functions are handled by the garbage collector.
  (Gabriel Scherer, review by Mark Shinwell, request by Immanuel Litzroth)

- M#7557, G#1213: More security for getenv
  (Damien Doligez, reports by Seth Arnold and Eric Milliken, review by

  review by David Allsopp, Jacques Garrigue)

* M#7414, G#929: Soundness bug with non-generalized type variables and
  (compatibility: some code using module-global mutable state will
   fail at compile-time and is fixed by adding extra annotations;
   see the Mantis and Github discussions.)
  (Jacques Garrigue, report by Leo White)

### Compiler user-interface and warnings:

- M#7050, G#748 G#843 G#864: new `-args/-args0 <file>` parameters to
  provide extra command-line arguments in a file -- see documentation.
  User programs may implement similar options using the new `Expand`
  constructor of the `Arg` module.
  (Bernhard Schommer, review by J?r?mie Dimino, Gabriel Scherer
   and Damien Doligez, discussion with Alain Frisch and Xavier Leroy,

  (Fabrice Le Fessant)

- G#829: better error when opening a module aliased to a functor
  (Alain Frisch)

- G#911: ocamlc/ocamlopt do not pass warnings-related options to C
  compiler when called to compile third-party C source files
  (S?bastien Hinderer, review by Adrien Nader and David Allsopp)

- G#915: fix -dsource ( bugs
  (Runhang Li, review by Alain Frisch)

* G#933: ocamlopt -p now reports an error on platforms that do not
  support profiling with gprof; dummy profiling libraries are no longer
  installed on such platforms.
  This can be tested with ocamlopt -config
  (S?bastien Hinderer)

- G#1009: "ocamlc -c -linkall" and "ocamlopt -c -linkall" can now be used
  to set the "always link" flag on individual compilation units.  This
  controls linking with finer granularity than "-a -linkall", which sets
  the "always link" flag on all units of the given library.
  (Xavier Leroy)

- G#1015: add option "-plugin PLUGIN" to ocamldep too. Use compilerlibs
  to build ocamldep. Add option "-depend" to ocamlc/ocamlopt to behave
  as ocamldep. Remove any use of ocamldep to build the distribution.
  (Fabrice Le Fessant)

- G#1027: various improvements to -dtimings, mostly including time
  spent in subprocesses like preprocessors
  (Valentin Gatien-Baron, review by Gabriel Scherer)

- G#1098: the compiler now takes the boolean "OCAML_COLOR" environment
  variable into account if "-color" is not provided.  This allows users
  to override the default behaviour without modifying invocations of ocaml
  (Hannes Mehnert, Guillaume Bury,
   review by Daniel B?nzli, Gabriel Scherer, Damien Doligez)

### Debugging and profiling:

- M#7258: ocamldebug's "install_printer" command had problems with
  module aliases

- G#939: activate the caml_example environment in the language
  extensions section of the manual. Convert some existing code
  examples to this format.
  (Florian Angeletti)

- G#1082: clarify that the use of quoted string for preprocessed
  foreign quotations still requires the use of an extension node
  [%foo ...] to mark non-standard interpretation.
  (Gabriel Scherer, request by Matthew Wahab in G#1066,
   review by Florian Angeletti)

- G#650: in the Unix library, add `?cloexec:bool` optional arguments to
  functions that create file descriptors (`dup`, `dup2`, `pipe`, `socket`,
  `socketpair`, `accept`).  Implement these optional arguments in the
  most atomic manner provided by the operating system to set (or clear)
  the close-on-exec flag at the same time the file descriptor is created,
  reducing the risk of race conditions with `exec` or `create_process`
  calls running in other threads, and improving security.  Also: add a
  `O_KEEPEXEC` flag for `openfile` by symmetry with `O_CLOEXEC`.
  (Xavier Leroy, review by Mark Shinwell, David Allsopp and Alain Frisch,
   request by Romain Beauxis)

- G#996: correctly update caml_top_of_stack in systhreads

### Compiler distribution build system: Makefile factorization

The compiler distribution build system (the set of Makefiles used to
build the compiler distribution) traditionally had separate Makefiles
for Unix and Windows, which lead to some amount of duplication and
subtle differences and technical debt in general -- for people working
on the compiler distribution, but also cross-compilation or porting to
new systems. During the 4.05 development period, S?bastien Hinderer
worked on harmonizing the build rules and merging the two build

* Some changes were made to the config/Makefile file which
  is exported as $(ocamlc -where)/Makefile.config, and on
  which some advanced users might rely. The changes are
  as follows:
  - a BYTERUN variable was added that points to the installed ocamlrun
  - the PARTIALLD variable was removed (PACKLD is more complete)
  - the always-empty DLLCCCOMPOPTS was removed
  - the SHARED variable was removed; its value is "shared" or "noshared",
    which duplicates the existing and more convenient
    SUPPORTS_SHARED_LIBRARIES variable whose value is "true" or "false".

  Note that Makefile.config may change further in the future and relying
  on it is a bit fragile. We plan to make `ocamlc -config` easier to use
  for scripting purposes, and have a stable interface there. If you rely
  on Makefile.config, you may want to get in touch with S?bastien Hinderer
  or participate to M#7116 (Allow easy retrieval of Makefile.config's values)
  or M#7172 (More information in ocamlc -config).

  (David Allsopp)

### Bug fixes

  (Damien Doligez, report by John Whitington)

- Fix ocamlmklib with bootstrapped FlexDLL. Bootstrapped
  FlexDLL objects are now installed to a subdirectory flexdll of the Standard
  Library which allows the compilers to pick them up explicitly and also
  ocamlmklib to include them without unnecessarily adding the entire Standard
  (David Allsopp)

Updated package to latest version, ocaml 4.04.0. This involved removing
some patches that have been migrated upstream.

Changes (bug numbers removed so they don't trigger our system) include:
(Changes that can break existing programs are marked with a "*")

### Language features:

- Support GADT equations on non-local abstract types
  (Jacques Garrigue)

- Local opening of modules in a pattern.
  Syntax: "M.(p)", "M.[p]","M.[| p |]", "M.{p}"
  (Florian Angeletti, Jacques Garrigue, review by Alain Frisch)

- local exception declarations "let exception ... in"
  (Alain Frisch)

- Allow shortcut for extension on semicolons: ;%foo
  (Jeremie Dimino)

- optimized representation for immutable records with a single
  field, and concrete types with a single constructor with a single argument.
  This is triggered with a [@@unboxed] attribute on the type definition.
  Currently mutually recursive datatypes are not well supported, this
  limitation should be lifted in the future (see M).
  (Damien Doligez)

### Compiler user-interface and warnings:

* interpret all command-line options before compiling any
  files, changes (improves) the semantics of repeated -o options or -o
  combined with -c see the super-detailed commit message at

- clarify the wording of Warning 38
  (Unused exception or extension constructor)
  (Gabriel Scherer)

* add colors when reporting errors generated by ppx rewriters.
  Remove the `Location.errorf_prefixed` function which is no longer relevant
  (Simon Cruanes, Jérémie Dimino)

- clarify the wording of Warning 8
  (Non-exhaustivity warning for pattern matching)
  (Florian Angeletti, review and report by Gabriel Scherer)

* Improve support for OCAMLPARAM: (i) do not use objects
  files with -a, -pack, -shared; (ii) use "before" objects in the toplevel
  (but not "after" objects); (iii) use -I dirs in the toplevel,
  (iv) fix bug where -I dirs were ignored when using threads
  (Marc Lasson, review by Damien Doligez and Alain Frisch)

- New -plugin option for ocamlc and ocamlopt, to dynamically extend
  the compilers at runtime.
  (Fabrice Le Fessant)

- Detect unused module declarations
  (Alain Frisch)

- Add a settable Env.Persistent_signature.load function so
  that cmi files can be loaded from other sources. This can be used to
  create self-contained toplevels.
  (Jérémie Dimino)

### Standard library:

- Provide `Sys.backend_type` so that user can write backend-specific
  code in some cases (for example,  code generator).
  (Hongbo Zhang)

- implement
  (Gabriel Scherer)

- Add Obj.reachable_words to compute the
  "transitive" heap size of a value
  (Alain Frisch, review by Mark Shinwell and Damien Doligez)

  allocated minor words.
  (Pierre Chambart, review by Damien Doligez and Gabriel Scherer)

  (Alain Frisch, request by Edgar Aroutiounian, review by Daniel Bunzli
  and Damien Doligez)

### Code generation and optimizations:

- Optimize Hashtbl by using in-place updates of its
  internal bucket lists.  All operations run in constant stack size
  and are usually faster, except Hashtbl.copy which can be much
  (Alain Frisch)

* Optimize performance of record update:
  no more performance cliff when { foo with t1 = ..; t2 = ...; ... }
  hits 6 updated fields
  (Olivier Nicole, review by Thomas Braibant and Pierre Chambart)

- Better unboxing strategy
  (Alain Frisch, Pierre Chambart)

- Ocamlopt + flambda requires a lot of memory
  to compile large array literal expressions
  (Pierre Chambart, review by Mark Shinwell)

- Handle specialisation of recursive function that does
  not always preserve the arguments
  (Pierre Chambart, Mark Shinwell, report by Simon Cruanes)

  C external.  This should be faster.
  (Demi Obenour)

- Optimize immutable float records
  (Pierre Chambart, review by Mark Shinwell)

- Do not generate dummy code to force module linking
  (Pierre Chambart, reviewed by Jacques Garrigue)

- Do not eliminate boxed int divisions by zero and
  avoid checking twice if divisor is zero with flambda.
  (Pierre Chambart, report by Jeremy Yallop)

- Optimize some constant string operations when the "-safe-string"
  configure time option is enabled.
  (Pierre Chambart)

  (Pierre Chambart, report by Leo White, review by Mark Shinwell)

- Share a few more equal switch branches
  (Pierre Chambart, review by Gabriel Scherer)

  (Pierre Chambart, review by Mark Shinwell)

- Lack of type normalization lead to missing simple compilation for "lazy x"
  (Alain Frisch)

### Runtime system:

- Allows to register finalisation function that are
  called only when a value will never be reachable anymore. The
  drawbacks compared to the existing one is that the finalisation
  function is not called with the value as argument. These finalisers
  are registered with `GC.finalise_last`
  (François Bobot reviewed by Damien Doligez and Leo White)

- Do not perform compaction if the real overhead is less than expected
  (Thomas Braibant)

### Tools:

- toplevel #show, follow chains of module aliases
  (Gabriel Scherer, report by Daniel Bünzli, review by Thomas Refis)

- have ocamldep interpret -open arguments in left-to-right order
  (Gabriel Scherer, report by Anton Bachin)

- ocamldoc, missing line breaks in type_*.html files
  (Florian Angeletti)

- ocamldoc, improved support for inline records
  (Florian Angeletti)

- ensure "ocamllex -ml" works with -safe-string
  (Hongbo Zhang)

- ocamldoc, add viewport metadata to generated html pages
  (Florian Angeletti, request by Daniel Bünzli)

- Make the output of ocamldep more stable
  (Alain Frisch)

- empty documentation comments
  (Florian Angeletti)

- Add the -no-version option to the toplevel
  (Sébastien Hinderer)

- Add a --strict option to ocamlyacc treat conflicts as errors
  (this option is now used for the compiler's parser)
  (Jeremy Yallop)

- make ocamldoc use -open arguments
  (Florian Angeletti)

- ocamldoc, fix order of extensible variant constructors
  (Florian Angeletti)

### Debugging and profiling:

- Spacetime, a new memory profiler (Mark Shinwell, Leo White)

### Runtime system:

- Add a new primitive caml_alloc_float_array to allocate an
  array of floats
  (Thomas Braibant)

### Manual and documentation:

- document the existence of OCAMLPARAM and
  (Damien Doligez, reports by Wim Lewis and Gabriel Scherer)

  (Damien Doligez, report by Shayne Fletcher)

- clarification to the wording and documentation
  of Warning 52 (fragile constant pattern)
  (Gabriel Scherer, William, Adrien Nader, Jacques Garrigue)

- Restore 4.02.3 behaviour of Unix.fstat, if the
  file descriptor doesn't wrap a regular file (win32unix only)
  (Andreas Hauptmann, review by David Allsopp)

- flatten : Avoid confusion
  (Damien Doligez, report by user 'tormen')

- Gc.finalise and lazy values
  (Jeremy Yallop)

- Document that [Store_field] must not be used to populate
  arrays of values declared using [CAMLlocalN] (Mark Shinwell)

### Build system:

- Compiler developers: Adding new primitives to the
  standard runtime doesn't require anymore to run `make bootstrap`
  (François Bobot)

- Fix compilation using old Microsoft C Compilers not
  supporting secure CRT functions (SDK Visual Studio 2005 compiler and
  earlier) and standard 64-bit integer literals (Visual Studio .NET
  2002 and earlier)
  (David Allsopp)

- More sharing between Unix and Windows makefiles
  (whitequark, review by Alain Frisch)

* Installed `ocamlc`, `ocamlopt`, and `ocamllex` are
  now the native-code versions of the tools, if those versions were
  (Demi Obenour)

- "./configure -safe-string" to get a system where
  "-unsafe-string" is not allowed, thus giving stronger non-local
  guarantees about immutability of strings
  (Alain Frisch, review by Hezekiah M. Carty)

### Bug fixes:

* Missed Type-error leads to a segfault upon record access.
  (Jacques Garrigue, extra report by Stephen Dolan)
  Proper fix required a more restrictive approach to recursive types:
  mutually recursive types are seen as abstract types (i.e. non-contractive)
  when checking the well-foundedness of the recursion.

* Nominal types and scope escaping.
  Revert to strict scope for non-generalizable type variables, cf. Mantis.
  Note that this is actually stricter than the behavior before 4.03,
  cf. , meaning that you may sometimes need to add type annotations
  to explicitly instantiate non-generalizable type variables.
  (Jacques Garrigue, following discussion with Jeremy Yallop,
   Nicolas Ojeda Bar and Alain Frisch)

  (Jacques Garrigue, report by Nicolas Ojeda Bar)

- Segfault from conjunctive constraints in GADT
  (Jacques Garrigue, report by Stephen Dolan)

- Support more than FD_SETSIZE sockets in Windows' emulation
  of select
  (David Scott, review by Alain Frisch)

* Prevent private inline records from being mutated
  (Alain Frisch, report by Pierre Chambart)

- Bug in mcomp_fields leads to segfault
  (Jacques Garrigue, report by Leo White)

  FlexDLL if there was also a system-installed flexlink
  (David Allsopp, report Michael Soegtrop)

  (Jeremy Yallop,
   review by Damien Doligez, Alain Frisch, Daniel Bünzli, Fabrice Le Fessant)

- check for integer overflow in Array.concat
  (Jeremy Yallop)

Updated lang/ocaml to newest version 4.02.2. Changes apart from bugfixes
- #6583: add a new class of binary operators with the same syntactic
  precedence as method calls; these operators start with # followed
  by a non-empty sequence of operator symbols (for instance #+, #!?).
  It is also possible to use '#' as part of these extra symbols
  (for instance ##, or #+#); this is rejected by the type-checker,
  but can be used e.g. by ppx rewriters.

Update to ocaml 4.02.0. Main changes (apart from ocamldoc and bugfixes, see
also upstream changelog):
Language features:
- Attributes and extension nodes
- Generative functors
- Module aliases
* Alternative syntax for string literals {id|...|id} (can break comments)
- Separation between read-only strings (type string) and read-write byte
  sequences (type bytes). Activated by command-line option -safe-string.
Build system for the OCaml distribution:
- Use -bin-annot when building.
- Use GNU make instead of portable makefiles.
- Updated build instructions for 32-bit Mac OS X on Intel hardware.
Shedding weight:
* Removed Camlp4 from the distribution, now available as third-party software.
* Removed Labltk from the distribution, now available as a third-party library.
Type system:
* Keep typing of pattern cases independent in principal mode
- Allow opening a first-class module or applying a generative functor
  in the body of a generative functor. Allow it also in the body of
  an applicative functor if no types are created
* Module aliases are now typed in a specific way, which remembers their
  identity. In particular this changes the signature inferred by
  "module type of"
- Slight change in the criterion to distinguish private
  abbreviations and private row types: create a private abbreviation for
  closed objects and fixed polymorphic variants.
* Compare first class module types structurally rather than
  nominally. Value subtyping allows module subtyping as long as the internal
  representation is unchanged.
- More aggressive constant propagation, including float and
  int32/int64/nativeint arithmetic.  Constant propagation for floats
  can be turned off with option -no-float-const-prop, for codes that
  change FP rounding modes at run-time.
- New back-end optimization pass: common subexpression elimination (CSE).
  (Reuses results of previous computations instead of recomputing them.)
- New back-end optimization pass: dead code elimination.
  (Removes arithmetic and load instructions whose results are unused.)
- Optimization of sequences of string patterns
- Experimental native code generator for AArch64 (ARM 64 bits)
- Optimization of integer division and modulus by constant divisors
- Add "-open" command line flag for opening a single module before typing
* "-o" now sets module name to the output file name up to the first "."
  (it also applies when "-o" is not given, i.e. the module name is then
   the input file name up to the first ".")
* better sharing of structured constants
- new flag to keep locations in cmi files
- issue warning 3 when referring to a value marked with
  the [@@ocaml.deprecated] attribute
- a new format implementation based on GADTs
* Constant exception constructors no longer allocate
- avoid unnecessary boxing in let
- Better compilation of optional arguments with default values
- ocamlopt -opaque option for incremental native compilation
Toplevel interactive system:
- New "#show_*" directives
Runtime system:
- New configure option "-no-naked-pointers" to improve performance by
  avoiding page table tests during block darkening and the marking phase
  of the major GC.  In this mode, all out-of-heap pointers must point at
  things that look like OCaml values: in particular they must have a valid
  header.  The colour of said headers should be black.
- Fixed bug in native code version of [caml_raise_with_string] that could
  potentially lead to heap corruption.
- Blocks initialized by [CAMLlocal*] and [caml_alloc] are now filled with
  [Val_unit] rather than zero.
- Fixed a major performance problem on large heaps (~1GB) by making heap
  increments proportional to heap size by default
- Structural equality treats exception specifically
- efficient comparison/indexing of exceptions
- avoid using unsafe C library functions (strcpy, strcat, sprintf)
- An ISO C99-compliant C compiler and standard library is now assumed.
  (Plus special exceptions for MSVC.)  In particular, emulation code for
  64-bit integer arithmetic was removed, the C compiler must support a
  64-bit integer type.
Standard library:
* Add new modules Bytes and BytesLabels for mutable byte sequences.
- add List.sort_uniq and Set.of_list
- a faster version of "raise" which does not maintain the backtrace
- support "Unix.kill pid Sys.sigkill" under Windows
- speed improvement for Buffer
- efficient creation of uninitialized float arrays
- Improve documentation regarding finalisers and multithreading
- Trigger warning 3 for all values marked as deprecated in the documentation.

Update of lang/ocaml to its newest version, 4.01. Changes, apart from
bugfixes, include:

- Labltk: updated to Tcl/Tk 8.6.
Type system:
- use well-disciplined type information propagation to
  disambiguate label and constructor names
* Propagate type information towards pattern-matching, even in the presence of
  polymorphic variants (discarding only information about possibly-present
  constructors). As a result, matching against absent constructors is no longer
  allowed for exact and fixed polymorphic variant types.
* Reject multiple declarations of the same method or instance variable
  in an object
- raise an error when multiple private keywords are used in type
- parsetree rewriter (-ppx flag)
- ocamldep now supports -absname
- On "unbound identifier" errors, use spell-checking to suggest names
  present in the environment
- ocamlc has a new option -dsource to visualize the parsetree
- tools/eqparsetree compares two parsetree ignoring location
- ocamlopt now uses clang as assembler on OS X if available, which enables
  CFI support for OS X.
- Added a new -short-paths option, which attempts to use the shortest
  representation for type constructors inside types, taking open modules
  into account. This can make types much more readable if your code
  uses lots of functors.
- added flag -compat-32 to ocamlc, ensuring that the generated
  bytecode executable can be loaded on 32-bit hosts.
- warning on open statements which shadow an existing
  identifier (if it is actually used in the scope of the open); new
  open! syntax to silence it locally
* warning 3 is extended to warn about other deprecated features:
  - ISO-latin1 characters in identifiers
  - uses of the (&) and (or) operators instead of (&&) and (||)
- Experimental OCAMLPARAM for ocamlc and ocamlopt
- incorrect ordinal number in error message
- add signature to Tstr_include
- expose a way to inspect the current call stack,
- new flag Marshal.Compat_32 for the serialization functions
  (Marshal.to_*), forcing the output to be readable on 32-bit hosts.
- infix application operators |> and @@ in Pervasives
- add O_CLOEXEC flag to Unix.openfile, so that the returned
  file descriptor is created in close-on-exec mode
* more efficient implementation of caml_modify() and caml_initialize().
  The new implementations are less lenient than the old ones: now,
  the destination pointer of caml_modify() must point within the minor or
  major heaps, and the destination pointer of caml_initialize() must
  point within the major heap.
- Moved debugger/ to typing/ to publish env_of_only_summary
  as part of compilerlibs, to be used on bin-annot files.
- The test suite can now be run without installing OCaml first.

Update to version 4.00.1. Renamed patches from two-letter system and added

Updated to default to a full dependency (more pertinent in most
cases; usually the standard library needs to be installed for an ocaml
program to run)

Changes from 3.12 to 4.00.1 include:
OCaml 4.00.1:
Various bug fixes.

OCaml 4.00.0:

(Changes that can break existing programs are marked with a "*")

- The official name of the language is now OCaml.

Language features:
- Added Generalized Algebraic Data Types (GADTs) to the language.
  See chapter "Language extensions" of the reference manual for documentation.
- It is now possible to omit type annotations when packing and unpacking
  first-class modules. The type-checker attempts to infer it from the context.
  Using the -principal option guarantees forward compatibility.
- New (module M) and (module M : S) syntax in patterns, for immediate
  unpacking of a first-class module.

- Revised simplification of let-alias (PR#5205, PR#5288)
- Better reporting of compiler version mismatch in .cmi files
* Warning 28 is now enabled by default.
- New option -absname to use absolute paths in error messages
- Optimize away compile-time beta-redexes, e.g. (fun x y -> e) a b.
- Added option -bin-annot to dump the AST with type annotations.
- Added lots of new warnings about unused variables, opens, fields,
  constructors, etc.
* New meaning for warning 7: it is now triggered when a method is overridden
  with the "method" keyword.  Use "method!" to avoid the warning.

Native-code compiler:
- Optimized handling of partially-applied functions (PR#5287)
- Small improvements in code generated for array bounds checks (PR#5345,
* New ARM backend (PR#5433):
    . Supports both Linux/EABI (armel) and Linux/EABI+VFPv3 (armhf).
    . Added support for the Thumb-2 instruction set with average code size
      savings of 28%.
    . Added support for position-independent code, natdynlink, profiling and
      exception backtraces.
- Generation of CFI information, and filename/line number debugging (with -g)
  annotations, enabling in particular precise stack backtraces with
  the gdb debugger. Currently supported for x86 32-bits and 64-bits only.
- New tool: ocamloptp, the equivalent of ocamlcp for the native-code compiler.

- PR#5645: ocamldoc doesn't handle module/type substitution in signatures
- PR#5544: improve HTML output (less formatting in html code)
- PR#5522: allow refering to record fields and variant constructors
- fix PR#5419 (error message in french)
- fix PR#5535 (no cross ref to class after dump+load)
* Use first class modules for custom generators, to be able to
  load various plugins incrementally adding features to the current
* PR#5507: Use Location.t structures for locations.
- fix: do not keep code when not told to keep code.

Standard library:
- Added float functions "hypot" and "copysign" (PR#3806, PR#4752, PR#5246)
* Arg: options with empty doc strings are no longer included in the usage string
- Array: faster implementations of "blit", "copy", "sub", "append" and "concat"
  (PR#2395, PR#2787, PR#4591)
* Hashtbl:
    . Statistically-better generic hash function based on Murmur 3 (PR#5225)
    . Fixed behavior of generic hash function w.r.t. -0.0 and NaN (PR#5222)
    . Added optional "random" parameter to Hashtbl.create to randomize
      collision patterns and improve security (PR#5572, CVE-2012-0839)
    . Added "randomize" function and "R" parameter to OCAMLRUNPARAM
      to turn randomization on by default (PR#5572, CVE-2012-0839)
    . Added new functorial interface "MakeSeeded" to support randomization
      with user-provided seeded hash functions.
    . Install new header <caml/hash.h> for C code.
- Filename: on-demand (lazy) initialization of the PRNG used by "temp_file".
- Marshal: marshalling of function values (flag Marshal.Closures) now
  also works for functions that come from dynamically-loaded modules (PR#5215)
- Random:
     . More random initialization (Random.self_init()), using /dev/urandom
       when available (e.g. Linux, FreeBSD, MacOS X, Solaris)
     * Faster implementation of Random.float (changes the generated sequences)
- Scanf: new function "unescaped" (PR#3888)
- Set and Map: more efficient implementation of "filter" and "partition"
- String: new function "map" (PR#3888)

Installation procedure:
- Compiler internals are now installed in `ocamlc -where`/compiler-libs.
  The files available there include the .cmi interfaces for all compiler
  modules, plus the following libraries:
      ocamlcommon.cma/.cmxa     modules common to ocamlc, ocamlopt, ocaml
      ocamlbytecomp.cma/.cmxa   modules for ocamlc and ocaml
      ocamloptcomp.cma/.cmxa    modules specific to ocamlopt

camltoplevel.cma         modules specific to ocaml
   (PR#1804, PR#4653, frequently-asked feature).
* Some .cmi for toplevel internals that used to be installed in
  `ocamlc -where` are now to be found in  `ocamlc -where`/compiler-libs.
  Add "-I +compiler-libs" where needed.
* toplevellib.cma is no longer installed because subsumed by
  ocamlcommon.cma ocamlbytecomp.cma ocamltoplevel.cma
- Added a configuration option (-with-debug-runtime) to compile and install
  a debug version of the runtime system, and a compiler option
  (-runtime-variant) to select the debug runtime.

and various bug fixes.

Simply and speed up files and processing.
This changes the files to use an include guard for the
recursive include. The use of BUILDLINK_DEPTH, BUILDLINK_DEPENDS,
BUILDLINK_PACKAGES and BUILDLINK_ORDER is handled by a single new
variable BUILDLINK_TREE. Each file adds a pair of
enter/exit marker, which can be used to reconstruct the tree and
to determine first level includes. Avoiding := for large variables
(BUILDLINK_ORDER) speeds up parse time as += has linear complexity.
The include guard reduces system time by avoiding reading files over and
over again. For complex packages this reduces both %user and %sys time to
half of the former time.

Over 1200 files touched but no revisions bumped :)

RECOMMENDED is removed. It becomes ABI_DEPENDS. becomes becomes

BUILDLINK_DEPENDS does not change.

IGNORE_RECOMMENDED (which defaulted to "no") becomes USE_ABI_DEPENDS
which defaults to "yes".

Added to checking for IGNORE_RECOMMENDED.

I did not manually go through and fix any aesthetic tab/spacing issues.

I have tested the above patch on DragonFly building and packaging
subversion and pkglint and their many dependencies.

I have also tested USE_ABI_DEPENDS=no on my NetBSD workstation (where I
have used IGNORE_RECOMMENDED for a long time). I have been an active user
of IGNORE_RECOMMENDED since it was available.

As suggested, I removed the documentation sentences suggesting bumping for
"security" issues.

As discussed on tech-pkg.

I will commit to revbump, pkglint, pkg_install, createbuildlink separately.

Do not use the wrapper for ocaml (the wrapper is incorrect then, it tries to pass -cclib as argument, but this is not an argument for ocaml)
Instead, create a symlink for ocaml
(this was causing problems in coq configure, which runs ocaml to detect its version)

Looks like the rpath problem is a bit more serious than I initially thought
(it currently affects packages using X11, but I guess it will also cause
problems when using pkgviews, for example).

So, instead of fixing it on a package basis, create some wrappers in the
buildlink directory that parse CFLAGS and LDFLAGS contents and convert them
to ocaml flags (basically, prepend -ccopt to each of them).

Do not depend on Tk nor X11.  Two new packages will be added to provide
the missing bits, namely labltk and ocaml-graphics, respectively.  To
simplify this, add a Makefile.common.  Bump PKGREVISION to 8.

Per discussion with wiz@ a while ago.

Two Darwin fixes:
	- split out the profiled libraries in the PLIST, because they
	  don't get built on Darwin.
	- set INSTALL_UNSTRIPPED on Darwin for both ocaml itself and
	  anything that directly depends on it, because the ocaml compiler
	  generates binaries that don't strip properly.

Fix various issues with this package:
- split patches files
- always enable threading which has various advantages
  - it fixes the build of the Tk library
  - it greatly simplifies the package list handling
  - it provides threading support under NetBSD 1.6/1.6.x
- correct default dependence in "" to "build"
Bump package revision because of all these changes.

Append to BUILDLINK_DEPENDS.<pkg> instead of setting a default value.  In
the normal case when BUILDLINK_DEPENDS.<pkg> isn't specified, it receives
a value only once due to the multiple inclusion protection in the files.  In the case where a package includes several files that each want a slightly different version of another
dependency, having BUILDLINK_DEPENDS.<pkg> be a list allows for the
strictest <pkg> dependency to be matched.
