is there anything in OCaml 4 that should break old code? Looking at the
release announcement it sounds like the language changes are backward
compatible. I would expect everything to just work (except of course
using the builtin marshalling between OCaml 4 and 3.x applications).
That's what I thought too, but I've already had to update some packages,
net/ocamlnet for example. Sometimes breakage is also just caused by the
fact that things are installed in different places (the compiler
libraries, for one, which breaks devel/ocaml-findlib).
So yes, most packages should continue to work without problems, but
still, some breakage is to be expected...
