Release Notes: Clzip now shows the progress of compression at verbosity level 2 (-vv). Decompressing and testing no longer show the file version. The option "-n, --threads" is now accepted and ignored, for compatibility with plzip. The configure script now accepts options with a separate argument.
Release Notes: Compression ratio has been slightly increased. Compression time has been reduced by 10%. Decompression time has been reduced by 8%. The targets "install-as-lzip" and "install-bin" have been added to the Makefile.
Release Notes: The inability to change output file attributes has been downgraded from "error" to "warning". A small change has been made in the "--help" output and man page. Quote characters in messages have been changed as advised by GNU Coding Standards. The configure option "--datadir" has been renamed to "--datarootdir" to follow GNU Standards.
Release Notes: The "-F, --recompress" option, which forces recompression of a file whose name already has the ".lz" or ".tlz" suffix, has been added. Only one status line is printed for each multimember file when only one "-v" is specified. For large values of "--match-length", compression ratio has been slightly increased and compression time has been reduced by up to 6%.
Release Notes: The code has been converted to "C89 + long long". A C99 compiler is no longer needed. A warning about fchown's return value being ignored has been fixed. "clzip -tvvvv" now also shows file compression ratio. Match length limits set by the options -1 to -9 have been changed to match those of lzip 1.11. The message "and `--stdout' was not specified" is not shown for file types that can't be read (directories, etc.). Some new examples have been added to the manual.
Release Notes: This is the first stable release. It was translated to C from the C++ source of lzip 1.10.
