Greetings ReasonML Developers,
The maintainers of core tools such dune, odoc, etc. are committed to supporting as many OCaml versions as possible. Unfortunately, this can be quite a burden on new development and a significant overhead on maintenance. To improve this situation, we’d like to have a better idea on when to drop support for older versions of OCaml, and just how far back our support should extend.
As a first step, we’ve started a thread in the OCaml discourse to gather data about which versions of the OCaml compiler are in active use today. I’m extending this exercise to this reason forum as well.
The maintainers team is particularly interested to hear from users who are unable to upgrade to recent versions of the compiler. If you’re using OCaml and you’re stuck with anything but the latest 3 versions, please share your experiences with us here.
