I am pleased to announce the release of lzd 1.3.

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

The source code 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 code. Lzd is compliant with the lzip specification; it verifies the 3 integrity factors.

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

Comments about the internet draft above are solicited and should be addressed to the lzip's mailing list at lzip-bug@nongnu.org and/or the author. Thanks.

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

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

The sha256sums are:

Changes in version 1.3:

* Lzd now discards the first byte of the LZMA stream explicity (instead of shifting 1 extra byte in the initialization of 'code') to make the intent clearer.
