I am pleased to announce the release of lzlib 1.13.

Lzlib is a compression library providing in-memory LZMA compression and decompression functions, including integrity checking of the decompressed data. The compressed data format used by lzlib is the lzip format. Lzlib is written in C. Lzlib is free software distributed under a 2-clause BSD license.

Compression/decompression is done by repeatedly calling a couple of read/write functions until all the data have been processed by the library. This interface is safer and less error prone than the traditional zlib interface.

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

The sources can be downloaded from http://download.savannah.gnu.org/releases/lzip/lzlib/

The sha256sums are:
dde6bd5b32535f17b28c9ac24b66607e0250506ac1432a4112ca3c73f5d662c3 lzlib-1.13.tar.lz a1ab58f3148ba4b2674e938438166042137a9275bed747306641acfddc9ffb80 lzlib-1.13.tar.gz

This release is also GPG signed. You can download the signature by appending '.sig' to the URL. If the 'gpg --verify' command fails because you don't have the required public key, then run this command to import it:

  gpg --keyserver keys.gnupg.net --recv-keys 8FE99503132D7742

Key fingerprint = 1D41 C14B 272A 2219 A739  FA4F 8FE9 9503 132D 7742

Changes in version 1.13:

* The variables AR and ARFLAGS can now be set from configure. (Before you needed to run 'make AR=<ar_command>'. (Reported by Hoël Bézier).

* In case of error in a numerical argument to a command line option, minilzip now shows the name of the option and the range of valid values.

* 'minilzip --check-lib' now checks that LZ_API_VERSION and LZ_version_string match.

  * Several descriptions have been improved in manual, '--help', and man page.

* The texinfo category of the manual has been changed from 'Data Compression' to 'Compression' to match that of gzip. (Reported by Alfred M. Szmidt).

Please send bug reports and suggestions to lzip-bug@nongnu.org
