Lzip is a lossless data compressor based on the LZMA algorithm, with
very safe integrity checking and a user interface similar to the one of
gzip or bzip2.

The homepage is at http://www.nongnu.org/lzip/lzip.html.

Changes in this version:

* Lziprecover is now able to repair any 1-byte error in the lzma stream of damaged lzip files.

* Decompressor has been modified to detect file errors earlier, improving efficiency of lziprecover's new repair capability. This change also prevents (harmless) access to uninitialized memory when decompressing a corrupt file.

Antonio Diaz, lzip author and maintainer.
