LibAlkimia 7.0.1 with MPIR support released

LibAlkimia is a base library that contains support for financial applications 
based on the Qt C++ framework.

One of its main features is the encapsulation of The GNU Multiple Precision 
Arithmetic Library (GMP) and so providing a simple object to be used  
representing monetary values in the form of rational numbers. All the 
mathematical details are hidden inside the AlkValue object.

The development team found out, that porting GMP to a standard MS-Windows 
build environment based on MSVC cannot easily be done and thus prevents the 
availability of LibAlkimia for this environment. On the other hand, there is a 
large demand for KMyMoney on MS-Windows. Fortunately, Multiple Precision 
Integers and Rationals (short: MPIR and actually a fork of GMP) comes to the 
rescue because it does support MSVC on Windows and CMake on Linux out of the 
box. And since MPIR is basically a snap-in replacement for GMP, we changed the 
LibAlkimia build system so that it now supports both backends alike with MPIR 
being the preferred choice. The selected MP (Multiple Precision) library will 
be propagated to the users of LibAlkimia (e.g. KMyMoney).

The source of LibAlkimia 7.0.1 is available immediately via the KDE download 
servers at
