I am pleased to announce the release of lzip 1.10.

Lzip is a lossless data compressor based on the LZMA algorithm, with very safe integrity checking and a user interface similar to the one of gzip or bzip2. Lzip decompresses almost as fast as gzip and compresses better than bzip2, which makes it well suited for software distribution and data archiving.

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

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

The md5sums are:
84879f20450a69a94e125a67f4724d12  lzip-1.10.tar.gz
0833df039953a723e88dff2ad06e3895  lzip-1.10.tar.lz

This release is also GPG signed. You can download the signature by
appending ".sig" to the URL.

Changes in version 1.10:

* File specified with option "-o" is now created with write permission for all if umask allows it, and deleted if lzip is interrupted by the user.

* Regular files are now open in binary mode in non-POSIX platforms defining the O_BINARY macro.

* Dictionary size for options -2, -3, -4 and -8 has been changed to improve linearity of compressed sizes.

  * Compiler warnings produced by over-optimization (-O3) have been fixed.

Please send bug reports and suggestions to address@hidden
