I am pleased to announce the release of lziprecover 1.14.

Lziprecover is a data recovery tool and decompressor for files in the lzip compressed data format (.lz) able to repair slightly damaged files, recover badly damaged files from two or more copies, extract undamaged members from multi-member files, decompress files, test integrity of files, extract a range of bytes from a file, and list the correct size of multi-member files.

Lziprecover is able to recover or decompress files produced by any of the compressors in the lzip family; lzip, plzip, minilzip/lzlib, clzip and pdlzip. This recovery capability contributes to make the lzip format one of the best options for long-term data archiving.

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

The sources can be downloaded from

The md5sum is:
6e001351bf632540dd7c463b095cea5c  lziprecover-1.14.tar.lz

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

Changes in version 1.14:

* The new option "-i, --ignore-errors", which in conjunction with "-D" decompresses all the recoverable data in all members of a file without having to split it first, has been added.

  * Option "-l, --list" now accepts more than one file.

  * Decompression time has been reduced by 12%.

* "--split" now uses as few digits as possible in the names of the files produced, depending on the number of members in the input file.

  * "--split" in verbose mode now shows the names of files being created.

* When decompressing or testing, file version is now shown only if verbosity >= 4.

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

  * 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
