Summary:Releasing libaio-ocaml-1.0

Libaio-ocaml 1.0 has been released and uploaded to Debian.

The Aio module provides bindings for the libaio (Linux kernel AIO access library) C library. It can be used for fast asynchronous I/O.

Compared with the OCaml standard and Unix I/O functions this library:
* does not block
* does I/O in the background
* calls a continuation when the I/O has completed

It also contains Aio.Buffer providing page aligned blocks of memory needed for Aio and helper functions to get and set various datatypes from/to the buffer. e.g. to extract an int64 in little endian order at offset 16.
This project has not yet categorized itself in the Trove Software Map
