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 !
