Lzd 1.2-rc1 is ready for testing here

The sha256sums are:
14bbfbd9fed133c96e626c75c757367fe7a1e21ff316c81924356f13c384888e lzd-1.2-rc1.tar.lz a72833fa01a033adc4f5ecbbc917ecb7183e7dd754e1afde0e89240844d0f92f lzd-1.2-rc1.tar.gz

Please, test it and report any bugs you find.

Lzd is a simplified decompressor for the lzip format with an educational purpose. Studying its source is a good first step to understand how lzip works.

The source of lzd is used in the lzip manual as a reference decompressor in the description of the lzip file format. Reading the lzip manual will help you understand the source.

Lzd decompresses from standard input to standard output. Lzd will correctly decompress the concatenation of two or more compressed files. The result is the concatenation of the corresponding decompressed data. Integrity of such concatenated compressed input is also verified.

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

Changes in this version:

* Mismatches in member size are now verified. Lzd is now compliant with the lzip specification; it verifies the 3 integrity factors.

* Lzd's source code is used as a reference in the description of the media type 'application/lzip'.
See http://datatracker.ietf.org/doc/draft-diaz-lzip

* The warning about "lzd not safe for real work" has been removed. (Lzd is safe, just not very convenient to use).

* Lzd now accepts (and ignores) the option '-d'. This allows it to be used as argument to the option '--lz' of the tools from the zutils package.
