Description

6.1.0 released 2015-11-01; 6.1.1 with minor fixes released 2016-06-20

Changelog: https://gmplib.org/gmp6.1.html

6.0.0 #1216 took us over a year and a half, from the jbigi rewrite started in early 2015, to inclusion for new installs in 0.9.26, to the inclusion of jbigi.jar in the 0.9.27 update October 2016.

I don't think there's any thing we need to do code-wise, except for minor updates for new chips if any, so 6.1.1 should go smoother. It's also possible that the next major version (6.2? 7.0?) is released before we get started on this.

I don't think that the people that did 6.0.0 (tuna and I) have much time or enthusiasm for starting this anytime soon.

Note that Ubuntu already has 6.1.0 in xenial and 6.1.1 in yakkety, so package users have it now (albeit not optimized).

6.1.2 is in stretch+, zesty+, so it's getting some testing via our packages.

Summer 2018 0.9.35 is a reasonable new target. Pulling in to .34 is a possibility.

I propose that we release even if we don't have all the targets, or even if we only have x86_64 linux. My insistence last time that we wait until we had everything definitely slowed us down.

6.1.2 still the latest.
Pushing out, still haven't started.
