./archivers/lz4, Extremely Fast Compression algorithm

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


Branch: CURRENT, Version: 1.8.3, Package name: lz4-1.8.3, Maintainer: filip

LZ4 is a very fast lossless compression algorithm, providing
compression speed at 400 MB/s per core, scalable with multi-cores
CPU. It also features an extremely fast decoder, with speed in
multiple GB/s per core, typically reaching RAM speed limits on
multi-core systems.

archivers/lz4: Update to 1.8.3.

- perf: minor decompression speed improvement (~+2%) with gcc
- fix : corruption in v1.8.2 at level 9 for files > 64KB under rare
  conditions (#560)
- cli : new command --fast, by @jennifermliu
- api : LZ4_decompress_safe_partial() now decodes exactly the nb of
  bytes requested (feature request #566)
- build : added Haiku target, by @fbrosson, and MidnightBSD, by @laffer1

lz4: updated to 1.8.2

v1.8.2
perf: *much* faster dictionary compression on small files
perf: improved decompression speed and binary size
perf: slightly faster HC compression and decompression speed
perf: very small compression ratio improvement
fix : compression compatible with low memory addresses (< 0xFFFF)
fix : decompression segfault when provided with NULL input
cli : new command --favor-decSpeed
cli : benchmark mode more accurate for small inputs
fullbench : can bench _destSize() variants
doc : clarified block format parsing restrictions

lz4: updated to 1.8.1.2

v1.8.1.2:
It's the same as v1.8.1, but the version number in source code has been fixed.
The version number is used in cli and documentation display, to create the full \ 
name of dynamic library, and can be requested via LZ4_versionNumber().
