plzip iconplzip 1.0 / 1.2 Pre1

A parallel version of the lzip data compressor
plzip is a command-line tool designed as a parallel version of the lzip data compressor. Lzip is a lossless data compressor based on the LZMA algorithm, with very safe integrity checking and a user interface similar to the one of gzip or bzip2.

Lzip decompresses almost as fast as gzip and compresses better than bzip2, which makes it well suited for software distribution and data archiving.

What's New in version 1.2 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).
  • Individual limits have been set on the number of packets produced by each decompresor worker thread to limit the amount of memory used in all cases.
  • "plzip.texinfo" has been renamed to "plzip.texi".
