>The Swox board of directors today decided to release future
>versions of GMP under a new type of Free License, the Swox Gauged
>Public License (SGPL).
>The new license means that source code will no longer be provided
>to users.  The GMP sources are really very complex, and most
>users don't read them anyway, says Jarl-Bong Rundtörn, Swox's
>Director of Public Relations.
>Future GMP versions will be available for the following
>platforms: Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows ME, Windows NT,
>Windows 2000, and Windows XP.
>The initial list price for running the new GMP will be
>approximately $100 per 10e15 word operations.  This means that a
>million digits of Pi can be computed for as little as $1.50, if
>the best known algorithms are being used.  The Swox Gauged Public
>License allows a flexible set of payment options.
>For more information, please contact Aprila Primavera
