./archivers/brotli, Generic-purpose lossless compression algorithm

[ CVSweb ] [ Homepage ] [ RSS ] [ Required by ] [ Add to tracker ]


Branch: CURRENT, Version: 1.0.2, Package name: brotli-1.0.2, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

Brotli is a generic-purpose lossless compression algorithm that compresses data
using a combination of a modern variant of the LZ77 algorithm, Huffman coding
and 2nd order context modeling, with a compression ratio comparable to the best
currently available general-purpose compression methods. It is similar in speed
with deflate but offers more dense compression.

Log message:
Updated archivers/brotli to 1.0.2

This is a build-maintenance release. Major changes:

    added Autotools build files
    switched shared library version to libtool scheme

In this release semantic suffix and libtool suffix are the same: 1.0.2.
Don't expect them to match in future releases.

Minor changes:

    BrotliDictionary members are not const now
    ZopfliNode distance could be up to 128MiB
    fixed API documentation typos
    total_out is always set by decoder
    fixed BROTLI_ENSURE_CAPACITY macro; no-op in preprocessed output

Other changes:

    fixed scripts for oss-fuzz, test them with Travis
    made Bazel JNI tests less messy
    fixed linter warnings in JS decoder
    fixed permissions of various files
    added Bazel build to Appveyor matrix
    added Sieve dictionary generator
