 <h3> GMP release update </h3>
-<p> GMP 5.0.0 was received well, and no major bugs have been reported.
-Initially, there were a number of issues with Mac OS X, memory appetite issues
-with multiplication, and problems with fat builds.  We solved most of these
-problems in 5.0.1, and several other such minor issues in 5.0.2 </p>
+<p> GMP 5.1.0 is out, but only from the gmplib servers.  A 5.1.0a might show up
+on the gnu.org servers at some point, but we cannot tell that yet.  There are
+several silly problems behind this; one a major overreaction to a minor
+automake issue which hyopthetically affects 5.1.0 (if users run the distcheck
+target, a malicous user might insert a file into a momentarily world-writable
 <p> Note that GMP newer than 5.0 on x86 or ARM cannot typically use valgrind.
 To run GMP under valgrind for x86-64, it might work with version 3.8; we know
-for sure that 3.7 does not work at least not with recent GCC.  The ARM problem
-is that ARMv6 instructions that we use are missing from valgrind.</p>
+for sure that 3.7 does not work at least not if GMP was compiled with a recent
+GCC.  The ARM problem is that ARMv6 instructions that we use are missing from
+valgrind, here anything newer than valgrind 3.8 is needed (but the valgrind
+repo code should be OK).
