I am pleased to announce the release of lzip 1.13.

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. Lzip decompresses almost as fast as gzip and compresses
better than bzip2, which makes it well suited for software distribution
and data archiving.

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

The sources can be downloaded from

The md5sums are:
2f401e995c36cca05bd1805aa9c28231 lzip-1.13.tar.gz
9378823e39eafc0b3d847d02a20d2c03 lzip-1.13.tar.lz

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

Changes in version 1.13:

* Lziprecover has been moved to its own package because it can recover
files produced by any of the compressors in the lzip family; lzip,
plzip, minilzip/lzlib, clzip and pdlzip.

* Inability to change output file attributes has been downgraded from
error to warning.

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

* A reorganization of the compression code has been made.

* A small change has been made in the "--help" output and man page.

* 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.

* unzcrash has been moved to package lziprecover.
