    Release Notes: Lziprecover has been moved to its own package. The inability to change output file attributes has been downgraded from an error to a warning. The compression time of the "-0" option has been reduced by 2%. The compression code was reorganized. A small change has been made in the "--help" output and man page. Quote characters in messages have been changed as advised by GNU coding standards. The "--datadir" configure option has been renamed to "--datarootdir" to follow GNU standards.

            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).

If "--verbose" is not specified, lziprecover now only shows errors and warnings.

                  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: The "-0" option, which produces a compression speed and ratio comparable to those of "gzip -9", has been added to lzip.

For large files with small errors, the probability of producing a correct file approaches 100 percent. The "--force" option, which forces overwriting of existing output files, and the "--output" option, which sets the name of the output file, have been added to lziprecover.
