I am pleased to announce the release of plzip 0.9.

Plzip is a massively parallel (multi-threaded), 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. Plzip uses the lzip
file format; the files produced by plzip are fully compatible with
lzip-1.4 or newer.

Plzip is intended for faster compression/decompression of big files on
multiprocessor machines, which makes it specially well suited for
distribution of big software files and large scale data archiving. On
files big enough, plzip can use hundreds of processors.

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

The sources can be downloaded from

The md5sums are:

Changes in this version:

* Minor fixes and cleanups.

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