I am pleased to announce the release of lzlib 1.5.

Lzlib is a compression library providing in-memory LZMA compression and decompression functions, including integrity checking of the decompressed data. The compressed data format used by lzlib is the lzip format. Lzlib is written in C.

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/lzlib.html

The sources can be downloaded from

The sha1sums are:
760a8ce66d45a624ee5718ea0a8b079f850d047b  lzlib-1.5.tar.lz
b89060b72c8357e0d0ca5198d48e97b5650a6d2c  lzlib-1.5.tar.gz

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

Changes in version 1.5:

  * 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" is called at the wrong moment.

  * Minor fixes have been made.

Please send bug reports and suggestions to address@hidden
