Summary:Onotify 0.6 : the first public release !

I am pleased to announce the first public release of Onotify !

Onotify is an OCaml binding for the Linux Inotify framework.

This project is a fork of ocaml-inotify, another Inotify OCaml binding initiated by
Vincent Hanquez <vincent@snarc.org> which can be found here :

Yet, Onotify is heavily based on this initial project and I would like
to thank Vincent Hanquez for his work.

The essential differences between Onotify and the initial project are :
- a new build system based on OCamlbuild, GNU make and a shell script ;
- some slight changes in the API, especially :
- a call to Inotify.read can now be safely blocking
- use of Unix.Unix_error to report runtime errors
- a documented API using ocamldoc
- a slightly improved test program
- the drop of the Inotify compatibility header (yet still present under unused/)

You can download the tarball from the download area provided by OCamlForge.

Moreover, you can visit the project homepage (currently very light !) at : http://onotify.forge.ocamlcore.org/

Enjoy !

Sorry for the delay but I have just noticed your comment !

In fact, the switch to the OASIS build system was already planned before the first release.

It will probably be the next stuff to do in Onotify.

What about OASIS for your build system [ reply ]

I have a quick look at your configure/Makefile.

If you are interested, I think you can use OASIS to generate both.
