  • OCaml is getting multicore support in the next major version (v5)

    Best example of this is the eio project, which adds async io to OCaml (without having to deal with monads like Lwt and Async). Having hit the rough edges of many other languages' async implementations, I'm really looking forward to trying it out.
  • The road to OCaml 5.0

    Note that OCaml 5.0 focuses on minimal (solid) support for the multicore runtime system, and will not provide stable user-facing concurrency and parallelism libraries. There has been a lot of experimentation [3,4] in the last few years, and some work remains to offer long-term, user-facing concurrent and parallel programming abstractions. OCaml 5.0 will be a great time to start adding concurrency and parallelism to your OCaml programs, but the libraries will still be in flux.

    ocaml-multicore/eio - effects based IO with support for io-uring
  • Multicore OCaml: April 2021
    6 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 13 May 2021
    Yes, exactly. The reason why monadic concurrency libraries such as Lwt and Async is that the OCaml language does not support concurrency natively. If it did, we would have built something similar to the `ocaml-aeio` library.

    Btw there is a modern instantiation of `ocaml-aeio` called `eieio` [1] which supports Linux's io-uring. Eventually, this will be extended to support all the modern I/O stacks on different platforms, and also support performing I/O on multiple cores.
