Version 1.11-rc1 of Lzip

Avatar

Release Notes: A warning about fchown's return value being ignored has been fixed. "lzip -tvvvv" now also shows file compression ratio. Match length limit set by options -1 to -8 has been reduced to extend the range of use towards gzip; lower numbers now compress less but faster. Compression of option -9 has been slightly increased. Some new examples have 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.
