You mean that there is a bug in the release process :-) Probably you are
right, but don't worry... some problems arose, as a consequence there will
be a delay, so we will heal both code and process bugs :-)

Great, thanks!

mini-gmp is not GMP... it can not mimic all the features of the main
library, and it can not pretend it is equivalent to any given version of
the library...

No *rand* supported by mini-gmp, yet
About GMP_NUMB_BITS, no configure step is provided for mini-gmp, and using
a formula (like #define GMP_NUMB_BITS (8*sizeof(mp_limb_t)) ) is not
coherent with the definition in gmp.h ...

I can't find this function in the manual. If you mean mpz_fdiv_q_2exp, you
will find it in mini-gmp too!

Thanks for the report!
