OPAM 1.1.1 releasedOn , by
We are proud to announce that OPAM 1.1.1 has just been released.
This minor release features mostly stability and UI/doc improvements over
OPAM 1.1.0, but also focuses on improving the API and tools to be a better
base for the platform (functions for
opam-doc, interface with tools like
opam-installer). Lots of bigger changes are in the works, and
will be merged progressively after this release.
Installation instructions are available on the wiki.
The 'official' package repository is now hosted at opam.ocaml.org, synchronised with the Git repository at http://github.com/ocaml/opam-repository, where you can contribute new packages descriptions. Those are under a CC0 license, a.k.a. public domain, to ensure they will always belong to the community.
Thanks to all of you who have helped build this repository and made OPAM such a success.
