We are pleased to announce the release of GNU MPC 1.1.0, a C library for the
arithmetic of complex numbers with arbitrarily high precision and correct
rounding of the result. GNU MPC extends the principles of the IEEE-754
standard for fixed precision real floating point numbers to complex numbers,
providing well-defined semantics for every operation. At the same time, speed
of operation at high precision is a major design goal.

Version 1.1.0 can be downloaded together with its GnuPG signature from the
GNU web site as

For documentation, see the web site of GNU MPC at
Bug reports and other comments may be addressed to the mailing list at ;
a previous subscription to the list is not required (but the moderation
may take a bit longer then).

Noteworthy changes include the following:
  - Minimally required library versions: GMP 5.0.0 and MPFR 3.0.0
  - Fixed issues with MPFR 4.0.0
  - New functions: mpc_cmp_abs, mpc_rootofunity
  - Improved speed for corner cases of mpc_asin, mpc_sin, see
  - Rewrite of the testing framework
  - New mpcbench tool, used with "make bench"
  - Fixed handling of over- and underflows with directed rounding in the
    "other direction" for mpc_cos, mpc_sin, mpc_exp and mpc_pow, see
  - Fixed a bug in mpc_atan(0,y) with |y| near 1, see

Happy hacking,

Andreas Enge and Paul Zimmermann
