Comment (by bdubbs@…):

 Changes from 4.2.0 to 4.2.1

 1. Support for OS/2 has been brought up to date.  This support was
    accidentally omitted from the initial 4.2 release, for which
    we apologize.

 2. The manual received a number of updates to make it format better
    for PDF.

 3. A new configure option, --enable-versioned-dir, causes the directory
    holding extensions to include the API version in its name.

 4. extension/configure.ac has been improved considerably.

 5. In MPFR mode, When ROUNDMODE changes, string values for numerically
    type values will be redone.

 6. The various 'inplace' tests now pass on modern BSD systems.

 7. A number of bugs, some of them quite significant, have been fixed.
    See the ChangeLog for details.
