Installing recent version of gmp

I want to install a recent version of gmp on Fedora. Tried to use yum

[root@tc139 gcc-4.8.2-objdir]# yum list | grep gmp
gmp.i686                                 4.3.1-6.fc13                 @fedora   
gmp.x86_64                               4.3.1-6.fc13                 @fedora   
gmp-devel.x86_64                         4.3.1-6.fc13                 @fedora   
gmp-devel.i686                           4.3.1-6.fc13                 fedora    
gmp-ecm.i586                             6.2.3-1.fc12                 fedora    
gmp-ecm.x86_64                           6.2.3-1.fc12                 fedora    
gmp-ecm-devel.i586                       6.2.3-1.fc12                 fedora    
gmp-ecm-devel.x86_64                     6.2.3-1.fc12                 fedora    
gmp-ecm-static.x86_64                    6.2.3-1.fc12                 fedora    
gmp-static.x86_64                        4.3.1-6.fc13                 fedora    
gmpc.x86_64                              0.19.1-2.fc13                fedora    
gmpc-devel.i686                          0.19.1-2.fc13                fedora    
gmpc-devel.x86_64                        0.19.1-2.fc13                fedora    
ocaml-mlgmpidl.x86_64                    1.1-4.fc13                   fedora    
ocaml-mlgmpidl-devel.i686                1.1-4.fc13                   fedora    
ocaml-mlgmpidl-devel.x86_64              1.1-4.fc13                   fedora    
ocaml-mlgmpidl-doc.x86_64                1.1-4.fc13                   fedora

Thus I cannot install a more recent such as gmp-5.1.2 from Fedora 20 for example
Is this possible to do?

What happens when you do
yum update gmp

# 3  
Old 02-24-2014
You could try
yum upgrade gmp --releasever=20

This will install gmp from the Fedora release 20.
Attention, might produce dependency errors if its dependencies are shared among other installed applications on that computer.

Hope this helps
