I am pleased to announce the release of lzlib 0.1.

The lzlib compression library provides in-memory LZMA compression and decompression functions, including integrity checking of the uncompressed data. The compressed data format used by the library is the lzip format.

The functions and variables forming the interface of the compression
library are declared in the file lzlib.h. An usage example of the
library is given in the file main.cc.

Compression/decompression is done by repeteadly calling a couple of
read/write functions until all the data has been processed by the
library. This interface is safer and less error prone than the
traditional zlib interface.

Lzlib will correctly decompress a data stream which is the concatenation
of two or more compressed data streams. The result is the concatenation
of the corresponding uncompressed data streams. Integrity testing of
concatenated compressed data streams is also supported.

All the library functions are thread safe. The library does not install
any signal handler. The decoder checks the consistency of the compressed
data, so the library should never crash even in case of corrupted input.

The homepage is at http://www.nongnu.org/lzip/lzlib.html.
The manual is at http://download.savannah.gnu.org/releases/lzip/manual/lzlib_manual.html.

The sources can be downloaded from

The md5sums are:

This is the first public release, so no changes to show here.
