Report Email from project maintainer announced the following:

I am pleased to announce the release of lzlib 1.2.

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

The homepage is at

The sources can be downloaded from

The md5sums are: 7a77358000929bb0a31ad6b68a139b9d lzlib-1.2.tar.gz 9aaa8d5bb8f06c4579f59b448def942b lzlib-1.2.tar.lz

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

If you are packaging lzlib for a distribution, please, try to use the lzipped source tarball, as this can improve the support for the lzip format in packaging systems. Thanks.

Changes in version 1.2:

  • For large values of "--match-length", compression ratio has been

slightly increased and compression time has been reduced by up to 6%.

  • The option "-F, --recompress", which forces recompression of files

whose name already has the ".lz" or ".tlz" suffix, has been added to minilzip.

  • "make install" no more tries to run "/sbin/ldconfig" on systems

lacking it.

Please send bug reports and suggestions to

Regards, Antonio Diaz, lzlib author and maintainer.
