I'm happy to announce a maintenance release of the GNU Multiple
Precision Arithmetic Library (GMP). The 5.1.3 release includes a couple
of bug fixes, and no new features. See NEWS excerpt below for details.
The release is available at
as well as on ftp://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/gmp/ and its mirrors.
Note that GMP exercises the corners of C arithmetic, and is likely to
trigger C compiler bugs. Always run make check after building the
library, and do *not* use the library if the testsuite fails.
Further information, including the GMP manual, is available at the GMP
On behalf of the GMP team,
Changes between GMP version 5.1.2 and 5.1.3
* The internal functions mpn_sbpi1_div_qr_sec mpn_sbpi1_div_r_sec could
compute garbage with a low probability. They are now rewritten, and the
test code has been improved.
* A bug in the ia64 implementation of mpn_divrem_2, clobbering some
callee-save registers, has been fixed. This is an internal
function, with the bug manifesting itself as miscomputation in,
* The documentation now correctly says 'const' for input arguments.
