Release Notes: The new option "--output", which sends output to a file when reading from standard input, allowing the direct creation of multivolume compressed tar archives, has been added. The new options "--member-size" and "--volume-size" have been added. This version is able to read from non-regular files. Support for safe recovery of undamaged members from multi-member files has been added. Lziprecover, a member recoverer program, has been added to the distribution.

Release Notes: The new "--output" option was added, which sends output to a file when reading from standard input. This allows the direct creation of multivolume compressed tar archives. "testsuite/unzcrash.cc" now tests all 1-byte errors instead of only 1-bit errors.

Release Notes: The new option "--member-size", which produces multimember files, has been added. The new option "--volume-size", which splits the compressed output into several volume files, has been added. This version is able to read from some types of non-regular files if "--stdout" is specified.

Release Notes: This version produces version 1 files with support for safe recovery of undamaged members from multi-member files. Lziprecover, a member recovery program for lzip compressed files, has been added to the distribution.

Release Notes: This version automatically chooses the smallest possible dictionary size for each file during compression, saving memory during decompression. This version is able to decompress version 1 files that will be produced by lzip 1.4. Version 1 files include the size of the compressed data. This will facilitate safe recovery of undamaged members from multimember files.

Release Notes: A 1-byte read outside allocated memory that could theoretically produce a bad compressed file has been fixed. Dictionary size limit has been reduced to 512MiB because setting it to 1GiB causes overflow of a 32-bit integer. Lzdiff and lzgrep have been added to the distribution. "make install-info" should now work on Debian and OS X.

Release Notes: Lzdiff, a diff/cmp wrapper for gzip, bzip2, and lzip compressed files, has been added to the distribution.
