> Hi,
> I'm pleased to announce the release 0.9.5 of OPAM.  All the features that I 
> though are important for the first releases are in, so you can consider 0.9.5 
> to be something like 1.0-rc1.
> For this release, I'm particularly keen on getting people feebdack on the new 
> auto-setup thing: OPAM now asks the user if he wants his local configuration 
> upgraded to fully use OPAM (including installation auto-completion scripts). 
> Use `opam init --no-setup` if you want to continue using OPAM as before.
> One notable change which will please packagers of OPAM for OS distributions: 
> I've added a `make with-ocamlbuild` and `make install-with-ocamlbuild` 
> targets to not depend on the unreleased (and thus unpackaged) ocp-build. 
> Otherwise, when using the development version of OPAM, it is still 
> recommended to use ocp-build (as it is much faster). 
> The changelog:
> * If necessary, apply patches and substitute files before removing a package
> * Fix `opam remove <pkg> --keep-build-dir` keeps the folder if a source 
> archive is extracted
> * Add build and install rules using ocamlbuild to help distro packagers
> * Support arbitrary level of nested subdirectories in packages repositories
> * Add `opam config exec "CMD ARG1 ... ARGn" --switch=SWITCH` to execute a 
> command in a subshell
> * Improve the behaviour of `opam update` wrt. pinned packages
> * Change the default external solver criteria (only useful if you have aspcud 
> installed on your machine)
> * Add support for global and user configuration for OPAM (`opam config setup`)
> * Stop yelling when OPAM is not up-to-date
> * Update or generate `~/.ocamlinit` when running `opam init`
> * Fix tests on *BSD (thx Arnaud Degroote)
> * Fix compilation for the source archive
> The files:
> [OPAM] https://github.com/OCamlPro/opam/archive/latest.tar.gz
> [OPAM+depends] http://www.ocamlpro.com/pub/opam-latest-full.tar.gz
> Best,
> Thomas
