The changes in this release are as follows:
Intel's IA-64 math library is largely integrated. It provides fast and
accurate implementatations for most basic and standard math functions in
float, double, and long double format. j0, j1, jn, y0, y1, yn, lgamma,
erfc, and asin were implemented for the 96-bit long double format, and
asin, log, tan were implemented for the 128-bit long double format. The
beginning of a last-bit accurate math library was started. The basic
functions exist today. An asynchronous name lookup library with an
interface modeled after POSIX AIO was added. Ports to S390/64bit and
Linux/CRIS were contributed. The RPC code is now thread-safe. Threads can
now use the same service of different services at the same time. The
setcontext family of functions was implemented for Linux/x86, Linux/IA-64,
and for Linux/S390.
