Release Notes: Improved portability on BSD systems: the configure script now accepts the option "--disable-ldconfig", and "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".
Release Notes: Decompression support for deprecated version 0 files has been removed. A bug has been fixed that would make an instance of "struct LZ_Encoder" unresponsive if "LZ_compress_sync_flush" were called at the wrong moment. Minor fixes have been made.
Release Notes: The compression ratio has been slightly increased. Compression time has been reduced by 8%. Decompression time has been reduced by 7%. Arguments and return values of functions in lzlib.h have been changed from "long long" to "unsigned long long". The minimum size of the input compression buffer has been reduced to 64KiB. The target "install-as-lzip" has been added to the Makefile.
Release Notes: Lzlib has been translated to C from the C++ source of lzlib 1.2. This has been done to avoid the dependency on libstdc++, making lzlib useful in more environments.
Release Notes: "make install" no longer tries to run "/sbin/ldconfig" on systems lacking it.
Release Notes: For large values of "--match-length", compression ratio has been slightly increased and compression time has been reduced by up to 6%. The option "-F, --recompress", which forces recompression of files whose names already have the ".lz" or ".tlz" suffix, has been added to minilzip.
Release Notes: The file bbexample.cc, containing example functions for buffer-to-buffer compression/decompression, has been added.
Release Notes: Compression time has been reduced by 2%. All declarations not belonging to the API have been encapsulated in the namespace "Lzlib". New tests have been added to the test suite. Match length limits set by options -1 to -9 of minilzip have been changed to match those of lzip 1.11. Minilzip now sets stdin and stdout in binary mode on OS2.
Release Notes: Variables declared "extern" have been encapsulated in a namespace. A warning about fchown's return value being ignored has been fixed.
Release Notes: This release adds the new functions LZ_decompress_member_finished, LZ_decompress_member_version, LZ_decompress_dictionary_size, and LZ_decompress_data_crc. Input_buffer has been integrated in Range_decoder, simplifying the code and making decompression slightly faster.
