I am pleased to announce the release of lzip 1.15.

Lzip is a lossless data compressor with a user interface similar to the one of gzip or bzip2. Lzip decompresses almost as fast as gzip and compresses more than bzip2, which makes it well suited for software distribution and data archiving. Lzip is a clean implementation of the LZMA algorithm.

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/lzip.html

The sources can be downloaded from

The sha1sums are:
cf87a9d74450bda959aaa076016fcb489043a494  lzip-1.15.tar.lz
a79d062d72071b5bb2bb7ef50dda6ac408c24192  lzip-1.15.tar.gz

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

Changes in version 1.15:

  * Lzip 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 chapter "Stream format" and the appendix "Reference source code" have been added to the manual.

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

Please send bug reports and suggestions to address@hidden
