I am pleased to announce the release of lzlib 1.4.

Lzlib is a compression library providing in-memory LZMA compression and decompression functions, including integrity checking of the decompressed data. The compressed data format used by lzlib is the lzip format. Lzlib is written in C.

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

The sources can be downloaded from http://download.savannah.gnu.org/releases/lzip/

The md5sums are:
f80ea2f804e5f708d216c44ef933bb4e  lzlib-1.4.tar.lz
055525a7315fb7b33f07a2ffeb418db7  lzlib-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:

  * Multi-step trials have been implemented.

  * Compression ratio has been slightly increased.

  * Compression time has been reduced by 8%.

  * Decompression time has been reduced by 7%.

* Arguments and return values of functions in lzlib.h have been changed from 'long long' to 'unsigned long long'.

* The minimum size of the input compression buffer has been reduced to 64KiB.

* "LZ_decompress_read" now tells "LZ_header_error" from "LZ_unexpected_eof" the same way as lzip does when the EOF happens at the header.

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

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

Please send bug reports and suggestions to address@hidden
