I am pleased to announce the release of pdlzip 1.4.

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

The sources can be downloaded from

The md5sums are:
ee4c28b3a08f656d08a8fb5f55cc3c0d  pdlzip-1.4.tar.lz
45ed554cfac61b9474571de4ff993841  pdlzip-1.4.tar.gz

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

Changes in version 1.4:

* 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 "-t" on the existence of "/dev/null" has been removed.

* The value returned by "-d" and "-t" in case of data error has been fixed.

  * Information shown at verbosity levels 2 and 3 has been changed.

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

  * "configure" now accepts options with a separate argument.

* 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.
