Release Notes: Improvements were made for more CPU usage and faster compression and decompression. Memory is now precisely controlled to avoid running out of memory while using the largest possible compression windows. A single thread is used when advantageous. Verbose output options were added for -i information. The lrzip.conf features were updated. The -M option was dropped. The -T lzo testing option was changed to not take a parameter. Deletion of files that the program has refused to overwrite is prevented. Output in failure modes was made cleaner. Default compiler flags were added. The program now refuses to read from or write to a terminal with stdin/stdout. Missed temporary files are deleted. A large clean up of the documentation was done.
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.
