Version 1.4-rc1 of pdlzip is ready for testing here

The md5sum is:
ba9f184e1fadda1b3ea0e2252d4a85b2  pdlzip-1.4-rc1.tar.lz

Please, test it and report any bugs you find.

Pdlzip is a limited, "public domain" version of the lzip data compressor, that uses the (de)compression code from Igor Pavlov's LZMA SDK and is able to decompress legacy lzma-alone (.lzma) files. Pdlzip is written in C.

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

Changes in this version:

* The options "-f, --force", "-F, --recompress", "-k, --keep", and "-o, --output", have been ported from clzip.

  * Pdlzip now accepts more than one file in the command line.

  * Decompression time has been reduced by 5%.

* The dependence of "--test" on the existence of "/dev/null" has been removed.

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

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

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