Release Notes: Fixes -O not working on lrztar. Makes it less likely to run out of RAM when working with STDIO or using -U on huge files. Fixes corrupt archives being generated from incompressible data or very small files. Fixes endianness on various platforms for MD5 calculation to work. Fixes rare corruption when compressing with lzma from STDIN. Fixes all blank data being generated when compressing from STDIN on OS X. Performance micro-optimizations. Fixes corrupt archives being generated when all the same non-zero bytes exist on large files.

Release Notes: A fix for a broken lrztar in 0.613 was committed.

Release Notes: This release fixes a bug which made massive files show an incorrect md5 value on decompression, compression of ultra-small files to corrupt archives, compilation on various platforms, and a crash related to using -S.

Release Notes: This release has been updated to a new zpaq library backend which is faster and now supports three different compression levels. This significantly increases the maximum compression available by lrzip with -L 9. The include file Lrzip.h used by liblrzip is now properly installed into $prefix/include.

Release Notes: lrzcat and lrzuntar have been fixed. lrzuntar will not overwrite existing directories by default now. The update counter will continue to update even when there is nothing being matched (like a file full of zeroes). Numerous optimizations in the rzip stage speeds up the faster compression modes noticeably. Checksumming is done in a separate thread during rzip compression for more compression speed improvements.

Release Notes: A new liblrzip library allows lrzip compression and decompression to be added to other applications. The rzip stage is now faster when files are large enough to require the sliding mmap feature and in unlimited mode. A bug where multiple files being compressed or decompressed from the one command line could have become corrupted was fixed. The modification date of the decompressed file is now set to that of the lrzip archive. Compilation warnings were fixed. lrztar now works with directories with spaces in their names.

Release Notes: Faster rzip stage through use of selective data access functions. The bash completion script is no longer installed by default, so as to not conflict with distribution bash completion packages. More compilation fixes for non-Linux platforms. Minor cleanups.

Release Notes: A rare case of not being able to decompress archives was fixed. The lzma library was updated to version 920. A bash completion script for lrzip was added. More debugging info was added in maximum verbose mode. Fewer messages occur without verbose mode. FreeBSD and POSIX compilation fixes were committed.
