Introduction
The CM software implements the construction of ring class fields of imaginary quadratic number fields and of elliptic curves with complex multiplication via floating point approximations. It consists of libraries that can be called from within a C program and of executable command line applications. For the implemented algorithms, see A. Enge, The complexity of class polynomial computation via floating point approximations, Mathematics of Computation 78 (266), 2009, pp. 1089–1107.
The software is written by Andreas Enge and is distributed under the GNU General Public License, either version 3 of the licence, or (at your option) any later version (GPLv3+).
News
Version 0.3 "Wurstebrei", released in March 2016, comes with the following new features:

Features
 The babystep giantstep algorithm of EngeHartJohansson 2018 is used to compute the series of η, leading to a speedup of up to a factor of 2 for this step of the algorithm.
 Class polynomial computation for j and γ_{2} is sped up by using a 2 or a 6system, respectively, instead of a 1 or a 3system. This makes it more likely that during the needed computation of η (τ/2) the conductor is not changed, so that a precomputed η value may be reused.

Miscellanea
 The license has been updated to GPLv3+, in line with the license of recent GMP, MPFR and MPC releases.

Version 0.2.1 "Blindhühnchen", released in March 2015, comes with the following new features:

Features
 Precisions beyond 300000 bits are now supported by an addition chain of variable length for the ηfunction.

 The minimal version number of MPFR has been increased to 3.0.0, that of MPC to 1.0.0 and that of Pari/GP to 2.7.0.
Version 0.2, released in February 2012, comes with the following new features:
