We are proud to announce the first public release of
core, Jane Street’s own alternative to OCaml’s standard library. We use this library as the base for our own development, and we hope people on the outside will find some use for it as well. People should be warned that
core is still in flux: there are interfaces that we have plans to change, so if you’re not willing to come along for the ride, you shouldn’t use it. Also, be warned that conformance with the OCaml standard library is not a goal, and we have already deviated from it in a number of ways. It’s also worth noting that we have only used and tested this library on x86 and x86-64 on Linux, and we make no claims about other platforms.
