Intro
----------------------------------------------------------------------

These are release notes for ocamlnet-3.0.

Major changes include:

 - Port to Win32
 - The new Rpc_proxy layer
 - Netplex has been extended (Netplex_sharedvar etc.)
 - New implementation of the Shell library for starting subprocesses
 - Uniform debugging with Netlog.Debug
 - Exception printers (Netexn)
 - Coordination of signal handling in Netsys_signal
 - New foundation for Unixqueue via pollsets
 - Extended Unixqueue engines (e.g. Uq_io)
 - More system calls in netsys
 - Camlboxes as an efficient way of message passing between processes
 - The netcgi1 library has been dropped in favor of netcgi2

Also, there are lots of smaller improvements and bug fixes.

----------------------------------------------------------------------
Known Problems
----------------------------------------------------------------------

There are known problems in this preview release:

- The port to Win32 is incomplete and still alpha quality

- Sometimes, DNS errors are just reported by the exception Not_found

- In netcgi2-plex, the "mount_dir" and "mount_at" options are not yet
  implemented.

- In netclient, aggressive caching of HTTP connections is still
  buggy. Do not use this option (by default, it is not enabled).

- The FTP client is still incomplete.
