Lzip 1.15 / 1.16 Pre1

This project provides an Open Source data compressor based on the LZMA algorithm
Lzip is an open source and free lossless command-line data compressor based on the LZMA algorithm, which features a user interface similar to the one of bzip2 and very safe integrity checking.

Lzip is able to decompress almost as fast as the gzip tool and compresses much better than the bzip2 utility, making it well suited for software distribution.

The software is designed to replace every file specified in the command-line with a compressed version of the respective file, renaming it to "original_name.lz".

Lzip is designed to preserve the original permissions, modification date, and, when possible, ownership of the compressed files.

What's New in version 1.16 Pre1
  • Copying of file dates, permissions, and ownership now behaves like "cp -p". (If the user ID or the group ID can't be duplicated, the file permission bits S_ISUID and S_ISGID are cleared).
  • Compression time has been reduced by 4%.
  • Some minor improvements have been made.
  • "lzip.texinfo" has been renamed "lzip.texi".
