* There have been many smaller bug fixes and performance improvements.
+Changes to the OCaml bindings
+* The bindings now require OCaml >=4.00.0, ocamlfind,
+ ctypes >=0.3.0 <0.4 and OUnit 2 if tests are enabled.
+* The bindings can now be built using cmake as well as autoconf.
+* LLVM 3.5 has, unfortunately, shipped a broken Llvm_executionengine
+ implementation. In LLVM 3.6, the bindings now fully support MCJIT,
+ however the interface is reworked from scratch using ctypes
+ and is not backwards compatible.
+* Llvm_linker.Mode was removed following the changes in LLVM.
+ This breaks the interface of Llvm_linker.
+* All combinations of ocamlc/ocamlc -custom/ocamlopt and shared/static
+ builds of LLVM are now supported.
+* Absolute paths are not embedded into the OCaml libraries anymore.
+ Either OCaml >=4.02.2 must be used, which includes an rpath-like $ORIGIN
+ mechanism, or META file must be updated for out-of-tree installations;
+ see r221139.
+* As usual, many more functions have been exposed to OCaml.
