      .

      The major change in this release is that it has been updated to use
      gwnum 25.14, which addresses the following issues:

      1) Gwnum would lose the /d in some (k*b^n+c)/d cases. This happened
      primarily in cases where the number was between 300 and 350 bits.
      2) The final conversion from gwnum to binary could fail in cases
      where generic reduction was used. The larger the number the less
      likely the bug would occur.
      3) Zero padded FFTs of length 80 and 112 could fail.
      4) More conservative in selecting an FFT length for non-base-2 cases.

      This release also goes back to using rational FFTs, which are slightly
      faster than irrational FFTs.

      With these changes to gwnum, there will be fewer roundoff errors with
      PFGW. These changes also address primality tests that silently fail.
      "Silently fail" refers to tests that do not trigger roundoff errors,
      yet have an incorrect result. It is highly recommended to update your
      clients to this release.

      Enjoy,
      Mark
