  1. Overview
  2. Docs
A library to probide a uwt based implementation of Distributed


Dune Dependency





0.6.0 (2019-11-24)

  • move from jbuilder to dune

  • move from topkg to to dune-release

  • Lwt 5.0.0 compatibility see #6.

0.5.0 (2018-03-25)

  • Remove dependency on lwt_log use logs_lwt instead to ensure compatibility with >= lwt 3.1.0 see #2.

  • Remove usage of Lwt.ignore_result see #3.

  • Ensure that on node start up if using a remote config then any remote nodes are connected to first before proceeding. Failure to connected to any remote node in the config will cause the node to not start.

  • Move to using Jbuilder (using topkg jbuilder integration as well) instead of Oasis. The library will now appear as two packages on opam : distributed (the concurrent I/O agnostic core) and distributed-lwt the lwt based implementation.

  • Moved to using odoc to generate documentation.

  • Stopped using oUnit for unit tests.

  • Ensure compatibility with lwt >= 4.0.0 (safe semantics) #3.

  • Ensure pids are unique across functor invocations.

  • Simplify library : remove heartbeat functionality, can be duplicated at application level using receive time-outs and spawning corresponding process on remote node.

  • Update case/receive API so that calling receive/receive_loop with a list of empty matchers is a compile time error. New APIs are val case : (message_type -> (unit -> 'a t) option) -> 'a matcher_list, termination_case : (monitor_reason -> 'a t) -> 'a matcher_list, val (|.) : 'a matcher_list -> 'a matcher_list -> 'a matcher_list, val receive : ?timeout_duration:float -> 'a matcher_list -> 'a option t, val receive_loop : ?timeout_duration:float -> bool matcher_list -> unit t.

  • Added appveyor CI support.

  • Added uwt support.

0.4.0 (2017-01-18)

  • Distributed 0.4.0 is Lwt 3.0.0 compatible see #1.

  • Changed the signature of case function from val case : (message_type -> bool) -> (message_type -> 'a t) -> 'a matcher to val case : (message_type -> (unit -> 'a t) option) -> 'a matcher to remove unnecessary asserts.

  • Added more unit tests to increase code coverage, integrated with coveralls in build process to get automatic coverage reports.

  • bug fixes related to heart beat monitoring.

0.3.0 (2016-11-06)

  • Removed dependency on batteries to allow compatibility with more versions of ocaml.

  • Added receive_loop auxiliary function.

  • Added optional monitor remote node function to run_node.

  • Modified signature of spawn and run node slightly to take a function (unit -> unit t) instead of unit t.

  • Made add_remote_node idempotent when adding a node that already exists.

  • Added more examples.

  • Added online docs.

  • Fix bug related to not cleaning up mailbox in case of exception in user provider message handler or recursive call in user provided handler.

  • Fix bug related heart beat processing.

0.2.0 (2016-10-25)

  • No functional changes over the previous release, just changes related to opam packaging.

0.1.0 (2016-10-23)

  • Initial release.
