If no problems arise, we plan to release GMP 6.1.0 next Wednesday.

The FreeBSD problems listed for 6.0.0 affect this release too, and there
are some known mis-compilation bugs with clang. They will not be
considered as critical for the release of the library.

An extract of changes from GMP 6.0 to GMP 6.1 follows:
 * The option --disable-assembly now disables all inlined asm.
 * Fixed ABI incompatible stack alignment in calls from assembly code.
 * New C++ functions gcd and lcm for mpz_class.
 * New public functions: mpn_divexact_1, mpn_zero_p, mpn_cnd_swap, and
 * Support for Darwin in all x86 code, thereby enabling fat builds.
 * Support for more 32-bit arm processors.
 * Support compilation with clang/llvm for more platforms.
 * Support for AVX-less modern x86 CPUs.
 * Support for NetBSD under Xen.

Best regards,
Marco Bodrato
