The signatures:

Each tarball is signed by Vincent Lefèvre. This can be verified
using the DSA key ID 98C3739D; this key can be retrieved with:

  gpg --recv-keys 98C3739D

or by downloading it from <>.
The key fingerprint is:

  07F3 DBBE CC1A 3960 5078  094D 980C 1976 98C3 739D

The signatures can be verified with: gpg --verify <file.asc>
You should check that the key fingerprint matches.

Changes from version 3.1.1 to version 3.1.2:
- Bug fixes (see <> or ChangeLog file).
- Updated examples to the MPFR 3.x API.

Note: The official tarballs for MPFR up to 3.1.1 were affected by a
vulnerability for "make distcheck" due to a bug in old GNU Automake
One of the purposes of this release is to provide tarballs without
this vulnerability.

Please send success and failure reports with "./config.guess" output
to <mpfr at>.

If no problems are found, GNU MPFR 3.1.2 should be released
around 2013-03-13.
