[ANNOUNCE] gmpy 1.1 beta released

Discussion in 'Python' started by Alex Martelli, Nov 13, 2005.

  1. See http://gmpy.sourceforge.net/ for details.

    What is it: a wrapper for the GMP 4 library (http://swox.com/gmp/), to
    provide multi-precision arithmetic for Python. Multi-precision floats,
    and unbounded-precision rationals, are not present in stock Python;
    multi-precision integers ('long') are, but gmpy's version of
    multi-precision integers is faster for some operations, and provides
    lots of nifty pre-packaged additional functions.

    Minor changes and bug-fixes since the latest 1.0 alpha: support for the
    latest versions of GMP and Python, particularly on the Mac (whose gmp 4
    is pickier...). Windows binary releases are now installer-exe's,
    support Python 2.3 and 2.4, and (thanks to enhancements in the
    underlying GMP) are faster than the previous Windows binary releases of
    gmpy (so is the source release, on any platform, if you build it with
    the latest and greatest GMP).

    This release has no known bugs (the scan0/scan1 bug that used to be
    present in Windows binary releases, as predicted, has disappeared
    without needing any changes to gmpy, thanks to bug fixes in GMP; the
    divm function's bugs, that were gmpy's responsibility, are now fixed).
