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 data from damaged files, decompress files and test integrity of 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. It makes lzip files resistant to bit-flip, one of the most common forms of data corruption, and its recovery capabilities contribute to make of the lzip format one of the best options for long-term data archiving.

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

Changes in this version:

* Lziprecover can now repair multi-member files with up to one byte error per member, without having to split them first.

* Lziprecover can now merge multi-member files without having to split them first even if some copies have the header and the trailer damaged.

* The chapters "Repairing Files" and "Merging Files" have been added to the manual.
