I am pleased to announce the release of lziprecover 1.15.

Lziprecover is a data recovery tool and decompressor for files in the lzip compressed data format (.lz) able to repair slightly damaged files, recover badly damaged files from two or more copies, extract data from damaged files, decompress files and test integrity of files.

Lziprecover is able to recover or decompress files produced by any of the compressors in the lzip family; lzip, plzip, minilzip/lzlib, clzip and pdlzip.

The lzip file format is designed for long-term data archiving. It is clean, provides very safe 4 factor integrity checking, and is backed by the recovery capabilities of lziprecover.

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

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

Changes in version 1.15:

* Lziprecover can now repair multi-member files with up to one byte error per member, without having to split them first.

* Lziprecover can now merge multi-member files without having to split them first even if some copies have the header and the trailer damaged.

* The chapters "Repairing files", "Merging files" and "Unzcrash" have been added to the manual.

Please send bug reports and suggestions to address@hidden
