The release delay have hurt enough as it is.
Just forgetting about the fix and include it in the next version of
the only sane possibility then.
I don't see it as a big problem if you are lagging by one bugfix
The differences are small anyway, and it's not like 3.08.2 is horribly
Anyway, it would be nice if the breakage would at least be announced
release documentation. Especially if it doesn't touch all the modules
libraries, as was the case for 3.08.2.
I would have announced it if I had known about it. From now on, I will
a reminder about binary compatibility in the release notes for each
That said, such behavior is a major drawback for using
ocaml in real projects, i believe.
I'd say it's a drawback of blind upgrading, which nobody does in a
real project anyway.
