I've made several updates to the GPL code at swox.com/gmp/devel/ in
the last days.

It is important to remember that this code is released under the GPL
during the development process.  This is done to prevent producers of
non-free programs that use GMP from taking advantage of the
development code.  Several huge corporations base their non-free
key products on GMP, but contribute absolutely nothing back.

The most important update is to multiplication of unbalanced operands.
It is also simple to deploy, and will give a nice boost for many

Note also that there was a buggy mul_toom22.c there for a few days.
If you have downloaded it, please update to the current revision.

There has also been updates of the division code.  This is still
incomplete, and not easy to deploy.  We will make changes to the
*_div_q and *_divappr_q interface and implementations soon, and then
put things together under a few to-be-documented entry points.
