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. Lziprecover is a data recovery tool for lzip-compressed files.

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

Changes in this version:

* The option "-F, --recompress", which forces recompression of files whose name already has the ".lz" or ".tlz" suffix, has been added.

  * Compression time of option "-0" has been reduced by 2%.

* Lzip now prints only one status line for each multimember file when only one "-v" is specified.

  * Print up to 6 bytes of trailing garbage when "-vvvv" is specified.

* Do not show the message "and `--stdout' was not specified" for file types that can't be read (directories, etc).

* If "--verbose" is not specified, lziprecover now only shows errors and warnings.

  * Options "--bits", "--position" and "--size" has been added to unzcrash.
