I am pleased to announce the release of lziprecover 1.13.

Lziprecover is a data recovery tool and decompressor for files in the lzip compressed data format (.lz) able to repair slightly damaged files, recover badly damaged files from two or more copies, extract undamaged members from multi-member files, decompress files, test integrity of files, extract a range of bytes from a file, and list the correct size of multi-member files.

Lziprecover is able to recover or decompress files produced by any of the compressors in the lzip family; lzip, plzip, minilzip/lzlib, clzip and pdlzip. This recovery capability contributes to make the lzip format one of the best options for long-term data archiving.

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

The sources can be downloaded from http://download.savannah.gnu.org/releases/lzip/

The md5sums are:
83be32a820b5d5211431b0d6f56181a9  lziprecover-1.13.tar.gz

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

Changes in version 1.13:

* Lziprecover is now distributed in its own package. Until version 1.12 it was included in the lzip package.

* Decompressor options (-c, -d, -k, -t) have been implemented in lziprecover so that a external decompressor is not needed for recovery nor for "make check".

* The new option "-D, --range-decompress" which extracts a range of bytes decompressing only the members containing the desired data, has been added.

* The new option "-l, --list" which prints correct total file sizes and ratios even for multi-member files, has been added.

  * "--merge" and "--repair" now remove the output file if recovery fails.

* Quote characters in messages have been changed as advised by GNU Coding Standards.

* Configure option "--datadir" has been renamed to "--datarootdir" to follow GNU Standards.

Please send bug reports and suggestions to address@hidden
