Some details still need improvement, but I'd rate the math library quality as "well above average" already. The release announcement: C++ support with g++/libstdc++ (requires minor fixes for glibc dependencies in libstdc++). New C99 math library (float, long double, complex, etc.) based on FreeBSD and OpenBSD code. Working floating point environment on i386 and x86_64. Many bugfixes and compatibility improvements for builting slightly-nonportable programs against musl. http://www.etalabs.net/musl/releases/musl-0.8.7.tar.gz As for building g++/libstdc++ for use with musl, the key change you have to make is replacing the libstdc++-v3/config/os/gnu-linux directory's contents with the contents of libstdc++-v3/config/os/generic (portable C versions instead of glibc-specific code). Really this should be part of the configure script's job, rather than hard-coding glibc assumptions. >From here on out, the 0.8.7 series will be mostly fixes to existing code. Areas of focus will be syncing TRE (regex) to the latest upstream (for technical and license reasons), syncing wctype functions to the latest Unicode standard, and overhauling floating point parsing (stdtod, etc.). I also plan to add the last few missing ISO C and POSIX functions such as strfmon. If you're trying to use C++ with musl 0.8.7 and having problems, please find us on Freenode #musl or write to this list in a new thread and either I or members of the community will be happy to help (and possibly diagnose problems in musl, if there are any). Cheers, Rich
