Version 1.1-pre1 of plzip is ready for testing here

The md5sum is:
eaa1310692a2afc731d842bc770adb91  plzip-1.1-pre1.tar.lz

Please, test it and report any bugs you find.

Plzip is a massively parallel (multi-threaded), lossless data compressor based on the lzlib compression library, with a user interface similar to the one of lzip, bzip2 or gzip.

Plzip can compress/decompress large files on multiprocessor machines much faster than lzip, at the cost of a slightly reduced compression ratio. On files large enough (several GB), plzip can use hundreds of processors. On files of only a few MB it is better to use lzip.

Plzip uses the lzip file format; the files produced by plzip are fully compatible with lzip-1.4 or newer, and can be rescued with lziprecover.

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

Changes in this version:

  * Plzip now shows the progress of compression at verbosity level 2 (-vv).

Signals "SIGUSR1" and "SIGUSR2" are no more raised internally to signal a fatal error.
