Please, test it and report any bugs you find.

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.

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

Changes in this version:

  * A warning about fchown's return value being ignored has been fixed.

  * "lzip -tvvvv" now shows file compression ratio.

* 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).

(Note that the bidimensional parameter space of LZMA can't be mapped to
a linear scale optimal for all files. If your files are large, very
repetitive, etc, you may need to use the --match-length and
--dictionary-size options directly to achieve optimal performance).

  * Compression of option -9 has been slightly increased.

  * Some new examples have been added to the manual.
