Log Message:
Update to 1.12

* lzdiff and lzgrep are now separate package, zutils (not packaged yet).

2011-04-30  Antonio Diaz Diaz  <>

        * Version 1.12 released.
        * Added new option `-F, --recompress'.
        * encoder.h (update_prices): Update high length symbol prices
          independently of the value of `pos_state'. This gives better
          compression for large values of `--match-length' without being
        * encoder.h Optimize pair price calculations. This
          reduces compression time for large values of `--match-length'
          by up to 6%.
        * Compression time of option `-0' has been reduced by 2%.
        * (decompress): Print only one status line for each
          multimember file when only one `-v' is specified.
        * (decompress): Print up to 6 bytes of trailing garbage
          when `-vvvv' is specified.
        * (open_instream): Do not show the message
          " and `--stdout' was not specified" for directories, etc.
        * If `-v' is not specified show errors only.
        * testsuite/ Use Arg_parser.
        * testsuite/ Added new options `-b', `-p' and `-s'.

        * Version 1.11 released.
        * Added new option `-0' which produces a compression speed and
          ratio comparable to those of `gzip -9'.
        * fast_encoder.h New files.
        * Match length limit set by options -1 to -8 has been
          reduced to extend range of use towards gzip. Lower numbers now
          compress less but faster. (-1 now takes 43% less time for only
          20% larger compressed size).
        * Compression of option -9 has been slightly increased.
        * Added new option `--merge' which tries to
          produce a correct file merging the good parts of two or more
          damaged copies.
        * Added new option `--repair' for repairing a
          1-byte error in single-member files.
        * (decode_member): Detect file errors earlier to
          improve efficiency of lziprecover's new repair capability.
          This change also prevents (harmless) access to uninitialized
          memory when decompressing a corrupt file.
        * Added new option `--force'.
        * Added new option `--output'.
        * Added new option `--split' to select the until
          now only operation of splitting multimember files.
        * If no operation is specified, warn the user
          and do nothing.
        * Fixed warning about fchown's return value being ignored.
        * `-tvvvv' now also shows compression ratio.
        * Set stdin/stdout in binary mode on MSVC and OS2.
        * New examples have been added to the manual.
        * testsuite: `test1' renamed to `test.txt'. Added new tests.
        * Matchfinder types HC4 (4 bytes hash-chain) and HT4 (4 bytes
          hash-table) have been tested and found no better than the
          current BT4.

        * Version 1.10 released.
        * decoder.h: Input_buffer integrated in Range_decoder.
        * File specified with option `-o' is now created with
          mode 0666 if umask allows it, deleted if interrupted by user.
        * New constant `o_binary'.
        * Dictionary size for options -2, -3, -4 and -8 has
          been changed to improve linearity of compressed sizes.
        * lzip.h: Fixed warnings produced by over-optimization (-O3).
        * Added quotes to directory names.

        * Version 1.9 released.
        * (main): Return at least 1 if closing stdout fails.
        * Added `--name' option to help2man invocation.
        * testsuite/ Use `test1' instead of `COPYING' for testing.

2009-09-02  Antonio Diaz Diaz  <>

        * Version 1.8 released.
        * Compression time has been reduced by 4%.
        * Lzdiff and lzgrep have been moved to the new package zutils.
        * Fixed warnings on sistems where uint32_t != unsigned int.
