I am pleased to announce the release of clzip 1.5.

Clzip is a lossless data compressor with a user interface similar to the one of gzip or bzip2.

Clzip uses the lzip file format; the files produced by clzip are fully compatible with lzip-1.4 or newer. Clzip is in fact a C language version of lzip, intended for embedded devices or systems lacking a C++ compiler.

The lzip file format is designed for long-term data archiving. It is clean, provides very safe 4 factor integrity checking, and is backed by the recovery capabilities of lziprecover.

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

The sources can be downloaded from

The sha1sums are:
05fad71a3dcffc9cf9dd735c000cf8e36a4213d5  clzip-1.5.tar.lz
acb7f6a8600971c2925f36cd10aba0f1f46f9c63  clzip-1.5.tar.gz

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

Changes in version 1.5:

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

  * Decompressing and testing no more show file version.

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

  * The configure script now accepts options with a separate argument.

Please send bug reports and suggestions to address@hidden
