Lzip 1.17-rc2 is ready for testing here

The sha1sums are:
8c048c427f0d6dee6d5df12f9b40d5cce2ccbda1  lzip-1.17-rc2.tar.lz
4e44057cedce55eac8ee219da97bfbaa9cf0aa7c  lzip-1.17-rc2.tar.gz

Please, test it and report any bugs you find.

Lzip is a lossless data compressor with a user interface similar to the one of gzip or bzip2. Lzip is about as fast as gzip, compresses most files more than bzip2, and is better than both from a data recovery perspective.

The lzip file format is designed for data sharing and long-term archiving, taking into account both data integrity and decoder availability.

A nice feature of the lzip format is that a corrupt byte is easier to repair the nearer it is from the beginning of the file. Therefore, with the help of lziprecover, losing an entire archive just because of a corrupt byte near the beginning is a thing of the past.

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

Changes in this version:

  * The new chapter "Quality assurance" has been added to the manual.

This is (I hope) the last release candidate before 1.17 stable.

Antonio Diaz, lzip author and maintainer.
