Release Notes: Plzip now shows the progress of compression at verbosity level 2 (-vv). The signals "SIGUSR1" and "SIGUSR2" are no longer raised internally to signal a fatal error.
Release Notes: Scalability of compression (max number of useful worker threads) has been increased. Scalability when decompressing from/to regular files has been increased. The number of worker threads is now limited to the number of members in the input file when decompressing from a regular file. "configure" now accepts options with a separate argument. The targets "install-as-lzip" and "install-bin" have been added to the Makefile.
Release Notes: This release adds minor fixes and cleanups. The configure option "--datadir" 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. The options "-d, --decompress" and "-t, --test" now also show compression ratio. The inability to change output file attributes has been downgraded from error to warning. 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. Stdin and stdout are now set in binary mode on OS2.
