Jean-Fran├žois Burnol submitted an update to the

                xint

package.

Version number: 1.2g 2016-03-19
License type: lppl1.3

Summary description: Expandable operations on long numbers

Announcement text:
----------------------------------------------------------------------
List selectors [L][n], [L][a:b], in expressions are faster. And
items are counted starting at zero, not one ([L][a:b] already
followed exactly Python slicing rules). The iter keyword's meaning
has changed, new one associated with rseq, former one which is
associated to rrseq renamed to iterr. The float operations with
large precision handle small inputs faster.

The documentation has an example of using iter to implement
expandably the Brent-Salamin algorithm for digits of Pi.

See CHANGES.{pdf,html} for more.
