gmpy 1.02 sources pre-release

Not packaged up for release yet, but the sources in CVS are now at release 1.02, with minor improvements (mpq('12.34') now works) and bugfixes (no warnings on comparisons of mpq's, nor of mpf's), plus experimental support for interoperability with Python 2.4's decimal.Decimal (via special conversion methods inserted in it; the same approach should allow full interoperability with any Python-coded class which wants to play along). The new functionality is not documented yet, and I consider it experimental -- I'll document and release it if and when I and/or others find time to play with it and it appears to work as desired (and I MUST work on the 2nd ed of the Nutshell for the next month or two...).... read more

See gmpy-sources.zip (you will also need a binary package for Win32; for Unix, you'll also need to have GMP 3 installed!).
