Release Notes: The option "-F, --recompress", which forces recompression of files whose name already has the ".lz" or ".tlz" suffix, has been added. For large values of "--match-length", the compression ratio has been slightly increased, and compression time has been reduced by up to 6%. The compression time of the option "-0" has been reduced by 2%. This release will print only one status line for each multi-member file when only one "-v" is specified. It will print up to 6 bytes of trailing garbage when "-vvvv" is specified. It does not show the message "and `--stdout' was not specified" for file types that can't be read (directories, etc).
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.
