Release Notes: 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. Also, a "-0" option as fast as "gzip -9" has been added. The compression of option -9 has been slightly increased. The "--merge" option, which tries to produce a correct file by merging the good parts of two or more damaged copies, has been added to lziprecover. For large files with small errors, the probability of producing a correct file approaches 100 percent. Lziprecover is now able to repair any 1-byte error in the lzma stream of damaged lzip files.
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).
Release Notes: The "configure" script now accepts options with a separate argument.
