Changed in version 1.8.1:
        Patching the version string in the META file

Changed in version 1.8:
	Removal of the support for O'Caml 3.09 and earlier.
	Integrating Sylvain's record access patch.

Changed in version 1.7:
	Porting to O'Caml 3.10. Still works for older O'Caml versions.

Changed in version 1.6:
	Setting the name of the location variable explicitly
	because the default changed in O'Caml 3.09.

Changed in version 1.5:
	Fixes for O'Caml 3.08. There is still a known problem:
	Locations in error messages may be wrong for <:here< ... >>.

Changed in version 1.4:
	Better code is generated. (Suggested by Mike Potanin.)

Changed in version 1.3:
	The backslash sequences \DDD and \xXX are recognized,
	e.g. \033 or \x21. (Suggested by Mike Potanin.)

Changed in version 1.2:
	The printf qualifiers L, l, n are now supported, e.g.
        ${x,%ld} for an int32 variable x. (Suggested by Nadj.)

Changed in version 1.0:
	Support for findlib-0.4

Changed in version 0.1.1:
	Updated the URLs in documentation.
