The sha256sums are:
7d2fc2bb27b6eb02b2ccccd2b9ae106850e70d1c37611001a09f108e55443bc2 lunzip-1.12-rc2.tar.lz 0789975905e199a468d398176bbc6b5e9990802048a218b5324d31b92690c494 lunzip-1.12-rc2.tar.gz

Please, test it and report any bugs you find.

Lunzip is a decompressor for lzip files. It is written in C and its small size makes it well suited for embedded devices or software installers that need to decompress files but do not need compression capabilities. Lunzip is fully compatible with lzip 1.4 or newer and is able to decompress any lzip file using as little memory as 50 kB.

The lzip file format is designed for data sharing and long-term archiving, taking into account both data integrity and decoder availability.

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

Changes in this version:

  * Lunzip now reports an error if a file name is empty (lunzip -t "").

* Option '-o, --output' now behaves like '-c, --stdout', but sending the output unconditionally to a file instead of to standard output. See the new description of '-o' in the manual. This change is backwards compatible only when decompressing from standard input alone. Therefore commands like:
  lunzip -d -o foo - bar.lz < foo.lz
must now be split into:
  lunzip -d -o foo - < foo.lz
  lunzip -d bar.lz
or rewritten as:
  lunzip -d - bar.lz < foo.lz > foo

* The words 'decompressed' and 'compressed' have been replaced with the shorter 'out' and 'in' in the verbose output when decompressing or testing.

* Option '--list' now reports corruption or truncation of the last header in a multimenber file specifically instead of showing the generic message "Last member in input file is truncated or corrupt."

* The commands needed to extract files from a tar.lz archive have been documented in the output of '--help' and in the man page.

  * 9 new test files have been added to the testsuite.

If you care about interoperability and long-term archiving, please help me replace xz with lzip. See http://www.nongnu.org/lzip/lzip_benchmark.html#xz1
