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

Changes in this version:

  * Multi-step trials have been implemented.

  * Compression ratio has been slightly increased.

  * Compression time has been reduced by 5%.

  * The target "install-bin" has been added to the Makefile.

  * 'setmode' is now used instead of '_setmode' on Windows and OS/2.

  * 'strtoull' has been defined to 'std::strtoul' on Windows.

Antonio Diaz, lzip author and maintainer.
