The ocamlforge batteries website is the first google hit for ocaml batteries. The site should probably be update to reflect the newest version of the docs/library so that newcomers are not confused by the old docs (speaking from personal experience here). I'm not sure how to do this myself otherwise I would have done it.
It's arcane; you have to be a member of the batteries project and then use SSH to access the folder on the forge. It's easier to put a new announcement about 2.0, which can be done through the web interface, and then our homepage updates. I'll add you on the forge so you should be able to help. Thanks.
Sounds icky. Would be sweet to have it ran like ocaml.org. I'll update it though. Just made an account on forge.
The forge page references the newest documentation on github. Is it enough to close this issue?
Good enough for me.
I updated any link that looked wrong and put up a minimalistic forge-level announcement for the new release.
