We are looking forward for any contributions! 64-bit FP math is one
of my wishlist items anyway. Keep in mind that we need a volunteer to
permanently handle *any* of the floating point issues though,
including those that exist with the current 32-bit FP library. There
are a couple of bug reports for it that demonstrate the kind of
problems that need to be solved (Inf/NaN/denormal handling of this
hand-crafted assembler code is close to non-existent).

I am wiilling to develop the code, but I am not sure about the time frame as of 
now. If the current code is in assembly, then I would prefer to continue the 
same in assembly and also try and plug the holes.  I would like a copy of this 
code. Is it available along with the source? Please let me know. Thank you.


PS: what sort of error is reported in case the floating point routine 
encounters a NaN?
Everything is publically available at the avr-libc project on Savannah:

The current FP library is available via CVS or via WebCVS. See the Bug Tracker for the list of current bugs including the problems with NaN.
