Release Notes: Threading of streams is overlapped, speeding up compression of large files. A problem in which the compression level passed to the lzma back end was too high was fixed. Lower compression levels are tried when lzma fails to compress. Failures to decompress due to using too many threads on decompression were fixed. Work when parallel work in threads uses too much RAM was serialized. Memory testing and rzip windows were rationalized, allowing larger back end compression windows across 32 and 64 bits. Spreading out thread spawning was reverted, as it slowed compression. Some faulty callocs were fixed. Threads and semaphores are closed down cleanly.
Release Notes: This release adds various fixes for the lrztar wrapper.
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.
