Subject: [boost] [multiprecision] New binary floating point type
From: John Maddock (john_at_[hidden])

One of the main feature requests during the multiprecision lib review was
for a binary floating point type.

There is now such a type in the sandbox under the
"multiprecision.cpp_bin_float" directory - you will also need latest SVN
Trunk to try this out. This new type is correctly rounded to nearest for
all arithmetic operations plus binary-decimal conversions and sqrt. Minimal
docs so far here:

I'd welcome comments, and if folks would like to try and break it, that
would be cool too ;-)

Regards, John.
