We are pleased to announce the minor release of opam 2.0.8.
This new version contains some backported fixes:
- Critical for fish users! Don’t add
- Fix sandbox script for newer
ccacheversions. [#4079 and #4087]
- Fix sandbox crash when
~/.cacheis a symlink. [#4068]
- User modifications to the sandbox script are no longer overwritten by
opam init. [#4020 & #4092]
- macOS sandbox script always mounts
/tmpread-write, regardless of
TMPDIR[#3742, addressing ocaml/opam-repository#13339]
post-sessionhooks can now print to the console [#4359]
- Switch-specific pre/post sessions hooks are now actually run [#4472]

archvariable detection when using 32bit mode on ARM64 and i486 [#4462]
A more complete release note is available.
Note: To homogenise macOS name on system detection, we decided to keep
macos, and convert
macosin opam. For the moment, in order to avoid breaking jobs & CIs, we keep uploading
macosbinaries, but from the 2.1.0 release, only
macosones will be kept.

OCamlPro is a R&D lab founded in 2011, with the mission to help industrial users benefit from state-of-the art programming languages like OCaml and Rust. We design, create and implement custom ad-hoc software for our clients. We also have a long experience in developing and maintaining open-source tooling for OCaml, such as Opam, TryOCaml, ocp-indent, ocp-index and ocp-browser, and we contribute to the core-development of OCaml, notably with our work on the Flambda optimizer branch. Another area of expertise is that of Formal Methods, with tools such as our SMT Solver Alt-Ergo (check our Alt-Ergo Users’ Club). We also provide vocational trainings in OCaml and Rust, and we can build courses on formal methods on-demand. Do not hesitate to reach out by email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
