Keywords: Multiple-Precision - Floating-point - Correct Rounding
GNU MPFR is an efficient multiple-precision floating-point library with well-defined semantics (copying the good ideas from the IEEE-754 standard), in particular correct rounding in 5 rounding modes. GNU MPFR provides about 80 mathematical functions, in addition to utility functions (assignments, conversions...). Special data (Not a Number, infinities, signed zeros) are handled like in the IEEE-754 standard.
There have been two new releases in 2016: 3.1.4 and 3.1.5. An MPFR-MPC developers meeting took place on 23 and 24 May 2016.
