MPC is a C library for the arithmetic of complex numbers with
arbitrarily high precision and
correct rounding of the result. It is built upon and follows the same
principles as MPFR.
With this release, MPC provides all C99 complex math functions.

MPC is a prerequisite for gcc-4.5. See:

Upstream bumped the shared library version number for 0.7.  I chose
not to bump the DLL version as
from limited testing it appears to binary compatible with mpclib-0.6-1.

Version 0.8, "Dianthus deltoides", released in November 2009, comes
with the following new features:

New functions:
  Inverse trigonometric functions: mpc_asin, mpc_acos, mpc_atan,
mpc_asinh, mpc_acosh, mpc_atanh
  Power functions: mpc_pow_d, mpc_pow_ld, mpc_pow_si, mpc_pow_ui,
mpc_pow_z, mpc_pow_fr
Bug fixes:
  ui_div: real divisor
