Release Notes: The encoding/decoding routines have been restructured to be thread-safe, and the syntax of the commandline frontend is more similar to base64 from the GNU coreutils now.
Release Notes: The source code has been cleaned to avoid errors and warnings with the latest gcc versions, and the DOS assembly encoder has been rewritten to be faster and compatible down to Intel 8086.
Release Notes: This version fixes Java-b91enc to handle file extensions case insensitively, and introduces a native DOS assembly implementation of the basE91 encoder.
Release Notes: This version breaks backward compatibility because the basE91 alphabet was changed to reduce the occurrence of double quotes when encoding random data (e.g. compressed files). If the ASCII output needs to be enclosed in double quotes (e.g. in C or Java programs), this minimizes the need for escape characters. Before upgrading, users should decode all their basE91 encoded files.
Release Notes: The AWK basE91 decoder no longer depends on GNU extensions.
Release Notes: Java-b91enc can break encoded output to lines of 76 characters now (using the '-b' switch), which makes it an useful stand-alone tool to create MIME compatible email attachments.
Release Notes: The encoder handles stream ends more effectively (it can save one byte sometimes), and buffer memory is allocated dynamically now. "make check" was implemented to verify correct behavior of builds.
Release Notes: A verbose mode was added, and Java-b91enc accepts command line syntax with only one FILE argument again.
Release Notes: The code was restructured to allow a more universal use of the basE91 backend, b91enc.java is a bit more similar to the C version now, and an implementation in PHP was added.
Release Notes: A bug in the decoder that could result in corrupt output on 64-bit systems was fixed. Java class files were included along with a man page and a version (-v) switch.
