   * Improved interaction between Math::BigInt and the backend libraries.

   * Much faster versions of _ilog2() and _clog2() implemented in the
     Math::BigInt::Calc backend library. This should speed up bilog2() and
     bclog2() in Math::BigInt when "Calc" is used as the backend liberary.

  2.003001 2023-12-26
   * Add configuration methods trap_inf() and trap_nan(). Previously it was only
     possible to modify these properties by using the config() method.
   * Fix CPAN RT #150796 so that config() no longer modifies the input when it is
     a hash ref.
   * Fix CPAN RT #150797 so that both accuracy and precision can be set
     simultaneously with config().
   * Add the following methods to Math::BigInt
     - bilog2()   base 2 logarithm rounded downwards, i.e., int(log2(x))
     - bilog10()  base 10 logarithm rounded downwards, i.e., int(log10(x))
     - bclog2()   base 2 logarithm rounded upwards, i.e., ceil(log2(x))
     - bclog10()  base 10 logarithm rounded upwards, i.e., ceil(log10(x))
   * Add the following backend library methods to Math::BigInt::Lib. These
     methods do the core computations for the corresponding methods in
     Math::BigInt (see above).
     - _ilog2()   base 2 logarithm rounded downwards
     - _ilog10()  base 10 logarithm rounded downwards
     - _clog2()   base 2 logarithm rounded upwards
     - _clog10()  base 10 logarithm rounded upwards
  2.002001 2023-12-09
   * Fix CPAN RT #150523
  2.002000 2023-12-02
   * Fix bug in Math::BigFloat method bsin(). It can now handle any argument to
     any precision. Also improve downgrading. This fixes CPAN RT #150590 and the
     bsin() part of CPAN RT #107604.
   * Fix bug in Math::BigFloat method bexp(). Specifying precision (rather than
     accuracy) used to give a NaN. Also improve downgrading.
   * Improve upgrading in Math::BigInt methods bsin() and bcos(). They now
     upgrade only when necessary.
  2.001001 2023-11-21
   * Fix CPAN RT #150469
  2.001000 2023-11-13
   * Fix rounding bug in bsqrt() in Math::BigInt. Also make bsqrt() upgrade only
     when necessary.
   * Simplify and speed up bsqrt() (for computing the square root) in
     Math::BigFloat. The computation time now mainly depends on the desired
     accuracy, not the number of digits in the significand.
   * Add support for using "div_scale" as import parameter, like this
         use Math::BigFloat div_scale => 80;
   * Add better argument checking when the "div_scale" value is set by the
  2.000000 2023-10-29
   * Merge the Math-BigRat distribution into the Math-BigInt distribution. This
     merge eliminates the problems that users have experienced when incompatible
     versions of the two distributions have been installed. This fixes CPAN RT
   * Add method from_dec() to Math::BigRat to make Math::BigRat more consistent
     with Math::BigInt and Math::BigFloat.
  * To be consistent with Math::BigInt and Math::BigFloat, make it possible to
    use "require" with Math::BigRat, e.g.,
         require Math::BigRat;
         $x = Math::BigRat -> bone();
   * Fix cases where "require" doesn't work for Math::BigInt and Math::BigFloat,
     and add tests to verify that "require" works for Math::BigInt, Math::BigRat,
     and Math::BigFloat.
   * Add methods bblsft() and bbrsft() to Math::BigRat to make Math::BigRat
     consistent with Math::BigInt and Math::BigFloat. These methods do bitwise
     left and right shift, respectively.
   * Fix bug in to_oct() and to_bin() in Math::BigFloat. They called to_hex()
     when upgrading, but should have called to_oct() and to_bin(), respectively.
   * Add to_hex(), to_oct(), to_bin() to Math::BigRat.
   * Add new method binv() to Math::BigInt, Math::BigFloat, and Math::BigRat.
   * Improve as_float() and as_rat().
   * POD updates.

  1.999842 2023-09-27
   * Fix a bug causing Math::BigInt and Math::BigFloat to be caught in an endless
     recursion. The bug was introduced when trying to fix
   * Allow div_scale to be 0. It is not documented what div_scale <= 0 means, but
     there are modules that set div_scale to 0 (e.g., Astro::Units) and fail
     their tests if this is not supported.
  1.999841 2023-09-21
   * Remove development files that were accidentally included in the
  1.999840 2023-09-18
   * Add methods bblsft() and bbrsft(), which do bitwise left and right shift,
     respectively. The binary operators for bitwise left and right shift, "<<"
     and ">>", now call the methods bblsft() and bbrsft(), respectively.
     While this behaviour is consistent with how "<<" and ">>" work on floating
     point numbers in core Perl, it changes how "<<" and ">>" worked on
     Math::BigFloat objects. This is a corner case, but any code currently using
     "<<" and ">>" on Math::BigFloat objects might need to be modified as follows
         $x >>= $y    should be changed to    $x -> brsft($y)
         $x <<= $y    should be changed to    $x -> blsft($y)
         $x >>  $y    should be changed to    $x -> copy() -> brsft($y)
         $x <<  $y    should be changed to    $x -> copy() -> blsft($y)
   * Improve blsft() and brsft(). They now support negative shift values, an
     arbitrarily large base, and have better handling of cases involving NaN.

  1.999835 2022-05-24
   * Fix bug related to upgrading in Math::BigInt->brsft(). This bug
     only showed up in Perl versions 5.16 and older.
  1.999834 2022-05-23
   * Further improvements to upgrading and downgrading.
  1.999833 2022-05-23
   * Fix Math::BigFloat->bpi(). The previous attempt at correcting it
     wasn't sufficient. Added test to verify the fix.
   * Correct the formatting in the CHANGES file.
  1.999832 2022-05-21
   * Improve as_int(), as_float(), and as_rat() so that they return a
     Math::BigInt, Math::BigFloat, and Math::BigRat, respectivly,
     regardless of upgrading and downgrading.
   * Improve stringification method bsstr() so that it handles upgrading
     and downgrading better.
   * Fix Math::BigFloat->bpi(), which unfortunately didn't handle
   * Avoid unnecessary downgrading/upgrading.
   * Add missed cases where downgrading/upgrading should be performed.

  1.999829 2021-12-29
   * Improve methods div_scale() and round_mode() so they work better with
     subclasses. This fixes CPAN RT #125430.
   * Make div_scale() accept a Math::Big(Int|Float|Rat) object as input. This
     fixes CPAN RT #140599.
  1.999828 2021-12-17
   * Add new methods numerator(), denominator(), and fparts().
   * Fix bug in to_ieee754(). Avoid that the significand overflows.

- updated to 1.999827
   see /usr/share/doc/packages/perl-Math-BigInt/CHANGES

  1.999827 2021-10-03
   * Improve error message for missing library argument.
   * Skip tests that don't work on older Perls. Also skip tests that compare
     floating point numbers.
  1.999826 2021-10-01
   * Improve documentation related to floating point literals.
   * Skip tests that fail due to Perl's broken handling of floating point literals
     before v5.32.0.
  1.999825 2021-09-28
   * Make Math::BigInt accept integers regardless of whether they are written as
     decimal, binary, octal, or hexadecimal integers or decimal, binary, octal, or
     hexadecimal floating point number.
   * When numeric constants are overloaded (with the ":constant" option) in
     Math::BigInt, every numeric constant that represent an integer is converted
     to an object regardless of how it is written. All finite non-integers are
     converted to a NaN.
   * When numeric constants are overloaded (with the ":constant" option) in
     Math::BigFloat, every numeric constant is converted to an object regardless
     of how it is written.
   * Add method from_dec() (cf. from_bin(), from_oct(), and from_hex()). It is
     like new() except that it does not accept anything but a string representing a
     finite decimal number.

   see /usr/share/doc/packages/perl-Math-BigInt/CHANGES

  1.999824 2021-09-20
   * Don't allow mixing math libraries. Use the first backend math library that is
     successfully loaded, and ignore any further attempts at loading a different
     backend library. This is a solution to the re-occurring problem of using
     objects using different math libraries.
   * Add missing documentation.
   * Miscellaneous minor improvements.

- updated to 1.999823
   see /usr/share/doc/packages/perl-Math-BigInt/CHANGES

  1.999823 2021-07-12
   * Improve the handling of the backend libraries. Provide more useful warnings
     and error messages. Update the documentation.
  1.999822 2021-07-09
    * Make the from_hex(), from_oct(), and from_bin() methods consistent with
    CORE::oct(), which does not require a leading "0" before the letter ("x",
     "o", or "b").
   * Make the from_oct() and new() methods accept octal numbers with prefix
     "0o", "0O", "o" (lowercase letter o), and "O" (capital letter O).
   * Make the from_bin() and new() methods accept binary numbers with
     prefix "0b", "0B", "b", and "B".
   * Make the from_hex() and new() methods accept hexadecimal numbers with
     prefix "0x", "0X", "x", and "X".
   * Update test files to match with the above.
  1.999821 2021-07-06
   * Make new() and from_hex() accept the "0X" prefix, not just the "0x" prefix,
     but not accept just "X" or "x". Now, "0XFF" returns 255, not NaN.
   * Make new() and from_bin() accept the "0B" prefix, not just the "0b" prefix, but
     not accept just "B" or "b". Now, "0B1111" returns 255, not NaN.
   * Make new() and from_oct() accept the "0o" and "0O" prefixes, but not accept
     just "O" (capital letter O) or "o" (lowercase letter o). Now, "0o377" and
     "0O377" return 255, not NaN. Also intepret floating point numbers with a
     leading zero and a binary exponent as an octal number, so that "01.4p0"
     returns 1.5, not NaN. There is still no ambiguety, since decimal floating
     point numbers use "e" or "E" before the exponent, and binary and hexadecimal
     floating point numbers use a "0b"/"0B" or "0x"/"0x" prefix, respectively.
  1.999820 2021-07-06
   * Fix bug and improve error messages in Math::BigInt::import().
  1.999819 2021-07-02
   * Add method btfac() (triple factorial) and bmfac() (multi-factorial),
     including tests and documentation.
   * Add missing and correct erroneous documentation for bfac() (factorial)
     and bdfac() (double factorial). Also correct handling of special cases
     and add tests for these cases.
   * Fix error in bsin() and bcos() causing them to hang indefinitely if the
     invocand is +/-inf.
   * Make it possible for the end user to specify the base length used internally
     in Math::BigInt::Calc.

   * Fix CPAN RT #130736 regarding numify() on a Math::BigFloat with a large
     number of digits and an equally large, but negative, exponent.
   * Fix a problem in to_ieee754() due to rounding in bpow().

- updated to 1.999817
   see /usr/share/doc/packages/perl-Math-BigInt/CHANGES

  1.999817 2019-10-11
   * Avoid non-integers in intermediate computations in Math::BigInt::Calc. This
     causes errors due to rounding issues, e.g., 47265625999999999 / 1000000000
     is 47265626 with double precision.
   * Remove api_version() and the corresponding test file. There is no need to
     check which methods are supported by a backend library now that each backend
     library is a subclass of Math::BigInt::Lib. Methods not provided in the
     backend library are provided by the parent class.
   * Add to_ieee745() and from_ieee754().
   * Add backermann() and ackermann() for the Ackermann function.
   * Add buparrow() and uparrow() for Knuth's up-arrow notation.
   * Add information about the github repository.
   * Update links in SUPPORT section in POD.
   * Fix bpow(). It returned NaN when it should truncate to zero.
   * Make blsft() in Math::BigInt allow bases up until the largest unsigned
   * Make _lsft() in Math::BigInt::Calc handle an arbitrarily large base.
   * Add new methods bdigitsum() and digitsum() to Math::BigInt. Add new method
     _digitsum() to Math::BigInt::Lib.
   * Add new methods is_non_negative() and is_non_positive().
   * Extend the default collation sequence used by to_base() and from_base() to
     all the 94 printable ASCII characters except blank/space.
   * Make new() in Math::BigFloat handle octal floating point numbers.
   * Slightly more robust t/01load.t.
   * Remove unused variables.
   * Miscellaneous code cleanup.

   * bnok() for Math::BigInt and Math::BigFloat now support the full Kronenburg
     extension. The behaviour is identical to the behaviour of the Maple and
     Mathematica function for negative integers n, k. Add tests. This closes CPAN
     RT #95628.
   * Fix POD errors. This closes CPAN RT #125141.
  1.999815 2018-10-19
   * Move bitwise operators signed and, signed or, and signed xor from
     lib/Math/BigInt/ into lib/Math/BigInt/ The file
     lib/Math/BigInt/ is no longer needed and thus removed.
  1.999814 2018-10-01
   * Add to_base() and from_base() to Math::BigInt and corresponding library
     methods _to_base() and _from_base() to Math::BigInt::Lib. This was inspired
     by CPAN RT #122681.
   * Fix Makefile.PL to reflect that Test::More is only needed for testing, not
     for building.
   * In the documentation for each of the to_(bin|hex|oct|bytes) methods, add a
     reference to the corresponding from_(bin|hex|oct|bytes) method.

   * Fix an old in the Math::BigFloat methods as_hex(), as_oct(), and as_bin()
     methods resulting in loss of accuracy. This bug was introduced in bug in
     Math-BigInt-1.76. Due to a naive copy and paste by me, and lack of tests,
     this bug was also present in the newer to_hex(), to_oct(), and to_bin()
     methods. This shows the bug, as it did not print "0xffff...":
         print Math::BigFloat -> from_hex("f" x 30) -> as_hex();
   * Fix incorrect formatting in the output from the Math::BigFloat methods
     to_hex(), to_oct(), and to_bin() when the output was zero. A prefix was
     added when it shouldn't have been.
   * Add tests to and for better testing of as_hex(),

   * CPAN RT #120240 revealed that the problems with undefined values is still
     present. After a close examination, I believe the only way to get this
     really working is to to make blog() call objectify() differently depending
     on whether the base for the logarithm is undefined or not. That way we can
     avoid objectify() converting the undefined value to a zero. Ideally, we
     should warn about undefined values when used in any other context, but we'll
     handle that in a later release. See also the related changelog entry for
   * Fix the way the argument count is computed in objectify(). When an argument
     count of 0 is given, it means that we should objectify all input arguments.
     However, it turned out that the actual argument count was computed

   * When a new method is added to Math::BigInt or Math::BigFloat, and this new
     method requires a new backend library method, die with a suitable error
     message if the installed backend library does not support this new method.
     The error message says that the method requires a newer version of the
     backend library.
   * Fix typos in Math::BigFloat and Math::BigInt.
   * Add bfib() and blucas() to Math::BigInt. They return Fibonacci and Lucas
     numbers, respectively. The actual computation of the numbers is done by the
     backend library. Documented both methods in POD. Add test files bfib-mbi.t
     and blucas-mbi.t.
   * Add _fib() and _lucas() to Math::BigInt::Lib. They return Fibonacci and
     Lucas numbers, respectively. Document both methods in POD. Add test files
     author-lib-arithmetic-unary-_fib.t and author-lib-arithmetic-unary-_lucas.t.

   * In Math::BigInt and Math::BigFloat, add methods bdfac() for double
     factorial. Add tests for this method.
   * In Math::BigInt and Math::BigFloat, add methods to_hex(), to_oct(), and
     to_bin() for hexadecimal, octal, and binary string output without prefix.
     Even for Math::BigFloat there is still only support for integer output. Add
     tests for these methods.

     corresponding tests.
   * In Math::BigInt::Lib, fix bug in overloaded "int".
   * In Math::BigInt::Lib, implement much faster versions of _from_hex(),
     _from_oct(), and _from_bin().

  2016-12-23 v1.999807 pjacklam
   * Add a message to Makefile.PL recommending upgrade if old libraries are
     installed. This message is more or less equivalent to the one appearing in
     Math-BigInt up until v1.997.
   * Improve the documentation (POD) in Math::BigInt::Lib.
   * Speed up _sqrt() and _root() in Math::BigInt::Lib.
   * Remove checking for exception cases (cases that would return +Inf, -Inf, or
     NaN) in Math::BigInt::Lib. It has been documented for a long time that such
     checking should be done by the caller.
   * Add library methods _to_bin(), _to_oct(), _to_hex(), which are equivalent to
     the _as_bin(), _as_oct(), and _as_hex() methods respectively, except that
     the _to_*() methods don't use a prefix in the output. This removes the need
     for the frequent removal of the various prefixes. Now each _as_*() method
     calls the equivalent _to_*() method, adds a prefix, and returns the output.
     The _to_*() methods are faster than the equivalent _as_*() methods were.
   * Add author test files for the methods _to_bin(), _to_oct(), and _to_hex().
   * Add library method _to_bytes(). The method _as_bytes() would have been
     called _to_bytes() if I had thought of it earlier. The method _as_bytes() is
     now just an alias to _to_bytes(). The _to_bytes() method also fixes a bug
     that was present in the _as_bytes() method. (CPAN RT #119346).
   * Add author test files for the method _to_bytes().
   * Add more tests for library methods _inc() and _dec(). When trying to bring
     the Math::BigInt::BitVect library back to life I realized that the test
     suite didn't catch certain errors in _inc() and _dec().
   * Die if trying to use as_bytes() or from_bytes() with a backend library that
     doesn't support the corresponding library methods.
   * Correct minor errors in the output messages in the test files.
   * Improve/correct various comments in the source code.
   * More diagnostic output is displayed by the author test files if the
     AUTHOR_DEBUGGING environment variable is set.

   * Add more tests for _nok() (binomial coefficient "n over k"). These new tests
     revealed some problems with some of the backend libraries when _nok() was
     given very large arguments.
   * Remove t/Math/BigFloat/, which is an Emacs temporary file
     included by accident.

  2016-12-07 v1.999804 pjacklam
   * Implement as_bytes(), as requested (CPAN RT 119096). Also implement the
     inverse conversion from_bytes(). This applies to Math::BigInt only. (Alas,
     these methods will be inherited from Math::BigInt into Math::BigFloat,
     Math::BigRat etc. where the methods won't work. Fixing this class
     relationship is an issue of its own.)
   * Implement _as_bytes() and _from_bytes() in Math::BigInt::Lib. Preferably,
     the various backend libraries will implement faster versions of their
     own. Add author test files for testing these methods thorougly.
   * Fix from_hex(), from_oct(), and from_bin().
     - When called as instance methods, the new value should be assigned to the
       invocand unless the invocand is read-only (a constant).
     - When called as instance methods, the assigned value was incorrect, if the
       invocand was inf or NaN.
     - Add tests to t/from_hex-mbf.t, t/from_oct-mbf.t, and t/from_bin-mbf.t
       to confirm the fix.
     - Add new test files t/from_hex-mbi.t, t/from_oct-mbi.t, and
       t/from_bin-mbi.t for better testing of these methods with Math::BigInt.
   * Correct typo in Math/BigInt/ (otherise -> otherwise) (CPAN RT 118829).
   * Add POD coverage testing of Math::BigInt::Lib to t/03podcov.t.

   * Upgrade bundled Module::Install from version 1.16 to version 1.17.
   * Add Math::BigInt::Lib (lib/Math/BigInt/, a parent class for
     Math::BigInt backend libraries.
   * Use objects in Math::BigInt::Calc, not just array refs. Also use OO-style,
     i.e., use $class->_add($x, $y) rather than _add($class, $x, $y).
   * Not all library methods modify the invocand, so call library methods as,
     e.g, $x = $LIB->method($x, $y) rather than just $LIB->method($x, $y).
   * Math::BigInt::Calc is now a subclass of Math::BigInt::Lib.
   * Add Math::BigInt::Lib::Minimal (t/Math/BigInt/Lib/ for testing
     inheritance from Math::BigInt::Lib.
   * Minor simplification in Math::BigInt::Calc->_str().
   * Speed up Math::BigInt::Calc->_root().
   * Remove test files that were included in the previous release by accident.
   * Add more tests and use more verbose output in some tests.
   * Fix typo in lib/Math/

  2016-07-13 v1.999725 pjacklam
   * Add method is_finite().
   * In Math::BigInt and Math::BigFloat, remove warnings about deprecated usage,
     at least until we have removed this usage from the "bignum" distribution.
     These warnings were too annoying for some people.
   * Faster bnok() when the library (backend) does not support it.
   * In the Math::BigFloat method bpi(), use a precomputed list of digits when
     the accuracy is <= 1000. This speeds up the trigonometric functions
     considerably, when I will introduce range reduction in a later release. This
     makes the _atan_inv() method redundant, so remove it. Also, the _alen()
     library method is now only used in _log_int(), which is good, because it
     isn't clear from the docs and tests what it was supposed to do.
   * Fix bug in the Math::BigInt::Calc library method _digit(). It would
     sometimes return undef or an empty string when it should have returned zero.
   * Fix bug in the Math::BigInt::Calc library method _rsft(). It would sometimes
     return two output arguments.
   * Fix bug in the Math::BigInt::Calc library method _lsft(). When the number
     zero was shifted N places in base 10, the result was not zero, but an
     invalid object.
   * Fix bug in the Math::BigInt::Calc library methods _and(), _or(), and _xor().
     They always assigned zero to the first input argument (the invocand).
   * Improve the Math::BigInt::Calc library method _log_int() for the cases when
     the output is zero or one. Also simplify the code.
   * Simplify the code for the Math::BigInt::Calc library method _zeros().
   * Reformat Math::BigInt::Calc so it is easier to read, for me anyway.
   * Add file t/author-bnok-mbi.t
   * Add one test file for every method in the libraries, including
     t/Math/BigInt/Lib/ with test utilities.
   * Clean up whitespace in all files in the distribution.
   * Better testing in t/author-bpi-mbf.t
   * The Math::BigInt::Calc library now always uses integers inside the objects,
     so there is no longer any need for all the "0 + ..." to convert strings to
     numbers, and the "int()" inside "length(int(...))" to determine the length
     of an array element. The only case that needs "0 + ..." now is the
     constructor _new(), whose input is a string.
     Note, however, that the Math::BigInt::FastCalc library method _new() still
     creates objects with leading zeros, so until that is fixed, we can't remove
     all the "0 + ..." etc. until Math::BigInt::FastCalc has been modified.

   * Using new() with an undefined argument no longer gives a warning. Explicit
     use of this is discouraged, but it is sometimes used by the modules
     themselves issuing warnings that is confusing to the end user. Just
     uncomment the code, since we plan to reintroduce this warning later.
   * Avoid using L<> around e-mail addressess in POD.
  2016-04-22 v1.999718 pjacklam
   * Improve documentation on large, unquoted input values to Math::BigInt.
   * Remove stuff from that was placed into author-numify-mbf.t, but
     accidentally still present in Adjusted test counts as needed.
   * Fix file headers in author-bmod-bdiv-mbi.t and author-btmod-btdiv-mbi.t.
   * Add bnan(), binf(), and bsub() methods to Math::BigFloat. This is a step
     along the way to having Math::BigFloat no longer being a subclass of
   * Using bnan, binf(), bzero() and bone() as functions is deprecated. This is a
     step along the way to a pure object oriented design.
   * When bnan() and binf() are used as instance methods, they no longer delete
     the accuracy and precision instance variables. 
   * Add test files from_bin-mbf.t, from_oct-mbf.t, and new-mbf.t.
   * Remove some code for Perl prior to 5.6. Such old versions are no longer
     support anyway.
   * Fix buggy handling of NaN in bcmp().
   * Add methods beq(), bne(), blt(), ble(), bgt(), and bge() to Math::BigInt and
     Math::BigFloat. These methods are called for the overloaded operators.
   * Add overloading of '==', '!=', '<', '<=', '>', to to Math::BigInt and
     Math::BigFloat and fix the broken overloading of '>='. These overloaded
     operators now behave like the equivalent core Perl operators.
   * Add test file author-relop-mbi-mbf.t for testing bcmp(), beq(), bne(),
     blt(), ble(), bgt(), and bge(), as well as the overloaded operators '==',
     '!=', '<', '<=', '>', and '>='.
   * 'int' now truncates a Math::BigFloat object to an integer without converting
     it to a Math::BigInt. When an object becomes a Math::BigInt, further
     computations with that object as invocand causes the arguments to be
     converted to Math::BigInt objects too, leading to unexpected results. This
     is confusing people. Unless downgrading is in effect, no Math::BigFloat
     object should become a Math::BigInt unless a Math::BigInt is explicitly
   * For Math::BigFloat, modify bitwise operations brsft() and brsft(), and add
     band(), bior(), bxor(), and bnot(). These now handle floating point numbers
     the same way as core Perl does, i.e., truncate non-integers to integers
     before applying the bitwise operator. This change will also make Perl's
     behaviour more consistent whether 'use bignum' is in effect or not.
   * Add overloading of '~' (bitwise not). It just calls bnot(), which has been
     implemented for ages.
   * Fix error in POD for bone().
   * Take parts of the code in t/calling.t and move it into the new files
     t/calling-class-methods.t and t/calling-instance-methods.t.
   * Improve test descriptions in t/
  2016-04-25 v1.999719 pjacklam
   * Revert the change to Math::BigFloat's blsft() and brsft() methods, which
     truncated the input (and output) to integers. However, now convert the base
     to an object only when the base isn't an object already. Also return NaN if
     any of the three operands is a NaN.
   * Change t/ to reflect the changes to blsft() and brsft(). Also,
     when a method should be tested, actually test that method, not the
     overloaded operator, which doesn't necessarily behave in the exact same
     manner as the method. This applies to the methods binc(), bdec(), bpow(),
     badd(), bsub(), bmul(), bdiv() in scalar context, brsft(), blsft(), and
   * The first output argument from objectify() is the class name, so use the
     variable name $class, not $self.
  2016-04-26 v1.999720 pjacklam
   * Overloaded 'int' should not modify it's argument.
   * Better documentation of blsft() and brsft().
  2016-04-26 v1.999721 pjacklam
   * Prevent Math::BigFloat methods band(), bior(), bxor(), and bnot() from
     modifying unmodifiable objects.
  2016-04-26 v1.999722 pjacklam
   * Fix bug in bone() and binf() when used as a function. The error caused
     warnings about using an unitialized variable. This fix applies to both
     Math::BigInt and Math::BigFloat.

     references to Knuth ever having said this. The closest reference I can find
     is that Knuth says 0**0 should be defined to be 1, not 0, but that is

  2015-09-11 v1.999701 pjacklam
   * The POD documentation, as well as the comments in the code, said that
     $x->bdiv($y) in list context should return quotient $q and remainder $r so
     that $x = $q * $y + $r, and that the remainder (modulo) $r should correspond
     to Perl's % operator as well as the bmod() method. This has not been the
     actual behaviour. This is now fixed.
   * Clearer POD documentation for the bdiv() and bmod() methods.
   * All input values in the range (-1,1) written as a decimal number, e.g.,
     -0.75 and 0.5, now return NaN, not 0.
   * Input values with a large (absolute value) negative exponent, e.g.,
     1e-9999999, now return NaN. The former behaviour was to die with the message
     "Quantifier in {,} bigger than 32766 in regex; marked by ..."
   * Intermediate computations in blog() increased the number of digits
     significantly in some cases. Now reduce the number of digits by rounding.
     However, keep some extra digits for remaining intermediate computations
     before the final rounding.
   * When $x is a Math::BigFloat, $x -> bceil() and $x -> bint() for -1 < $x < 0
     returned -0. Negative zero is never used by Math::Big(Int|Float), and care
     has been taken to avoid it, so this bug is surely an oversight.
   * Explicitly specify the backend (lib => 'Calc') in t/mbimbf.t for easier
     release management of the backend distributions.
   * Add "use warnings" to test scripts, since Perl 5.6.2 is required anyway, and
     "use warnings" was introduced in Perl 5.6.1.
   * Modified test scripts so the difference between the test files in the
     Math-BigInt distribution and the backend distributions are as few and as
     small as possible. This makes for easier release management.
