OPAM 1.1.1 released
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.

Au sujet d'OCamlPro:
OCamlPro is a R&D lab founded in 2011, with the mission to help industrial users benefit from state-of-the art programming languages like OCaml and Rust.
We design, create and implement custom ad-hoc software for our clients. We also have a long experience in developing and maintaining open-source tooling for OCaml, such as Opam, TryOCaml, ocp-indent, ocp-index and ocp-browser, and we contribute to the core-development of OCaml, notably with our work on the Flambda optimizer branch.
Another area of expertise is that of Formal Methods, with tools such as our SMT Solver Alt-Ergo (check our Alt-Ergo Users'). We also provide vocational trainings in OCaml and Rust, and we can build courses on formal methods on-demand. Do not hesitate to reach out by email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
