Lzlib 1.6-pre2 is ready for testing here

The sha1sum is:
019583cd4ed52bf05ebee22f13a3a410a47466e0  lzlib-1.6-pre2.tar.lz

Please, test it and report any bugs you find.

Lzlib is a data compression library providing in-memory LZMA compression and decompression functions, including integrity checking of the decompressed data. The compressed data format used by the library is the lzip format. Lzlib is written in C.

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/lzlib.html

Changes in this version:

  * Improved portability to BSD systems:
    - The configure script now accepts the option "--disable-ldconfig".
    - "make install" now ignores any errors from ldconfig.

* Minilzip now copies file dates, permissions, and ownership like "cp -p". (If the user ID or the group ID can't be duplicated, the file permission bits S_ISUID and S_ISGID are cleared).

  * "lzlib.texinfo" has been renamed to "lzlib.texi".

Antonio Diaz, lzlib author and maintainer.
