I am pleased to announce the release of xlunzip 0.4.

Xlunzip is a test tool for the lzip decompression code of my lzip patch for linux. Xlunzip is similar to lunzip, but it uses the lzip_decompress linux module as a backend. Xlunzip tests the module for stream, buffer-to-buffer and mixed decompression modes, including in-place decompression (using the same buffer for input and output). You can use xlunzip to verify that the module produces correct results when decompressing single member files, multimember files, or the concatenation of two or more compressed files. Xlunzip can be used with unzcrash to test the robustness of the module to the decompression of corrupted data.

The xlunzip tarball contains a copy of the lzip_decompress module and can be compiled and tested without downloading or applying the patch to the kernel.

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

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

The lzip patch for linux can be found at http://download.savannah.gnu.org/releases/lzip/kernel/

Changes in version 0.4:

  * The lzip_decompress module has been updated to version 4.18.1-2.

  * A harmless warning on 32 bit systems has been fixed.

* Large amounts of trailing zeros are now skipped more efficiently when decompressing or testing in place.

  * Errors are now also checked when closing the input file.

* It has been documented in INSTALL the use of '-D __USE_MINGW_ANSI_STDIO' when compiling on MinGW.

Please send bug reports and suggestions to address@hidden

If you are distributing software in xz format, please consider using lzip instead. See http://www.nongnu.org/lzip/lzip_benchmark.html#xz1 and http://www.nongnu.org/lzip/xz_inadequate.html
