rnf.pol / rnf.polabs

Dear all,

  I'd like to announce a change breaking backward-compatibility among
the 'rnf' member functions, implementing number field extensions L / K in GP:

1) rnf.pol now returns the defining polynomial for L over K 
(used to return a defining polynomial for L over Q), to make it
consistent with nf.pol and bnf.pol  [ and with the libpari code ! ]

2) the new rnf.polabs now returns what rnf.pol used to provide: a
defining polynomial for L over Q.

The change is present in 2.6.2-beta [ to be released shortly, release
candidate for 2.7 ], hence in 2.7-stable.

Sorry for the inconvenience.
