  Hi,

  Sorry for a probably very simple question, but what is a simple
reasoning for the library major bump?

  I suspect it should be mainly due to mpc_{div,mul}_2exp rename,
and possibly behavior change due to bug corrections.

  I recently opened a bug report for fedora at
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=858894
suggesting to build a libmpc-compat to generate a temporary
package providing libmpc.so.2 until packages are rebuilt. I made
the suggestion to upgrade because I have a work in progress
sagemath package for fedora, that now links to libmpc and makes
use of mpc_{div,mul}_2si.

Thanks,
Paulo
