I am pleased to announce the release of lzlib 1.1.

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

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

The sources can be downloaded from

The md5sums are:
3e57ebb510b6343e93f56724cfa16510  lzlib-1.1.tar.gz
d7517f40e7a4d75c559f2f6c83af17df  lzlib-1.1.tar.lz

This release is also GPG signed. You can download the signature by appending ".sig" to the URL.

If you are packaging lzlib for a distribution, please, try to use the lzipped source tarball, as this can improve the support for the lzip format in packaging systems[1]. Thanks.

Changes in version 1.1:

  * Compression time has been reduced by 2%.

* All declarations not belonging to the API have been encapsulated in the namespace "Lzlib".

  * New tests have been added to the testsuite.

* Match length limits set by options -1 to -9 of minilzip have been changed to match those of lzip 1.11.

  * Minilzip now sets stdin and stdout in binary mode on OS2.

* The file bbexample.cc, containing example functions for buffer-to-buffer compression/decompression, has been added.

Please send bug reports and suggestions to address@hidden
