This beta 3 release brings speed and stability improvements, replaces the opam build command with
opam install <dir>, provides a clearer interface for handling package test and doc dependencies, and extends the CLI in a few areas.
opam build was added to:
- provide an easier way to start projects without a pre-existing opam installation
- allow direct interaction with projects in a current directory
- copy installed files of a package below a specified
Feedback highlighted that the interface was difficult in places, and the command name misleading, so
opam install <dir> was created as a replacement - still addressing the above issues, and providing a clearer interface. Read more about the details on the opam blog.
