Release Notes: Codification of dictionary size in the file header has been changed. At least lzip 1.4 is needed to decompress files produced by lzip 1.5. A problem that prevented compilation with GCC 4.4 has been fixed. Compression speed has been improved for all files, and has even doubled for dictionary sizes of less than 64KiB. Lzdiff and lzgrep now accept "-h" for "--help" and "-V" for "--version". "--member-size" and "--volume-size" have been made more accurate. The chapter "Algorithm" has been added to the manual.
Release Notes: Copying of file dates, permissions, and ownership now behaves like "cp -p". (If the user ID or the group ID can't be duplicated, the file permission bits S_ISUID and S_ISGID are cleared). Compression time has been reduced by 4%. Some minor improvements have been made. "lzip.texinfo" has been renamed "lzip.texi".
Release Notes: This release shows the progress of compression at verbosity level 2 (-vv). Decompressing and testing no longer show 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. The chapter "Stream format" and the appendix "Reference source code" have been added to the manual.
Release Notes: Decompressing and testing no longer shows the file version. The "Reference source code" appendix of the manual has been updated to version 0.4 of lzd. Minor fixes have been made.
Release Notes: Lzip now shows the progress of compression at verbosity level 2 (-vv).
