Long Range ZIP Publisher's description
from Con Kolivas
A compression program that can achieve very high compression ratios and speed when used with large files
Long Range ZIP is a compression program that can achieve very high compression ratios and speed when used with large files. It uses the combined compression algorithms of lzma for maximum compression, lzo for maximum speed, and the long range redundancy reduction of rzip.
It is designed to scale with increases with RAM size, improving compression further. A choice of either size or speed optimizations allows for either better compression than even lzma can provide, or better speed than gzip, but with bzip2 sized compression levels.
What's New in This Release:В· Minor formatting improvement to delete misaligned %.
В· Implement progress counter on zpaq compress/decompress per thread within the Reader function.
В· Add some lrzip style defines and optimisations to the lrzip functions inlibzpaq.h
В· Re-instantiate the lzo compresses test for zpaq compression.
В· Remove redundant code.
В· Delete now-unused zpipe code.
В· Implement virtual write support for bufWrite to speed up zpaq support and simplify the virtual read function for bufRead.
В· Add virtual read() support to the bufRead class to speed up encoding/decoding via the zpaq library.
В· Use libzpaq backend for decompression.
В· Move zpaq compression to new libzpaq library back end.
В· Merge branch 'master' into zpaq
В· Add minimal libzpaq compilation support.
В· Move to libzpaq directory.
В· Import libzapq files.
В· Fix Lrzip.h not being installed into include directory and make distcheck failing
В· SEPTEMBER 2011, version 0.607 Con Kolivas
