Version 1.15-pre1 of lzip is ready for testing here

The md5sum is:
6420ca82b92cfb4d343460b109d98415  lzip-1.15-pre1.tar.lz

Please, test it and report any bugs you find.

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:

  * Decompression time has been reduced by 1%.

  * Member version is now shown only if verbosity >= 4.

* Option "-n, --threads" is now accepted and ignored for compatibility with plzip.

* The chapter "Stream Format" and the appendix "Reference source code" have been added to the manual.

Antonio Diaz, lzip author and maintainer.
