./devel/snappy, General purpose data compression library

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

Branch: CURRENT, Version: 1.1.7, Package name: snappy-1.1.7, Maintainer: agc

Snappy is a compression/decompression library. It does not aim for
maximum compression, or compatibility with any other compression
library; instead, it aims for very high speeds and reasonable
compression. For instance, compared to the fastest mode of zlib,
Snappy is an order of magnitude faster for most inputs, but the
resulting compressed files are anywhere from 20% to 100% bigger. On a
single core of a Core i7 processor in 64-bit mode, Snappy compresses
at about 250 MB/sec or more and decompresses at about 500 MB/sec or

Snappy is widely used inside Google, in everything from BigTable and
MapReduce to the internal RPC systems. (Snappy has previously been
referred to as "Zippy" in some presentations and the likes.)

Log message:
Snappy 1.1.7
Improved CMake build support for 64-bit Linux distributions.
MSVC builds now use MSVC-specific intrinsics that map to clzll.
ARM64 (AArch64) builds use the code paths optimized for 64-bit processors.

Log message:
Snappy v1.1.6:

This is a re-release of v1.1.5 with proper SONAME / SOVERSION values.

Snappy v1.1.5:

This release has broken SONAME / SOVERSION values. Users of snappy as a shared
library should avoid 1.1.5 and use 1.1.6 instead. SONAME / SOVERSION errors will
manifest as the dynamic library loader complaining that it cannot find snappy's
shared library file (libsnappy.so / libsnappy.dylib), or that the library it
found does not have the required version. 1.1.6 has the same code as 1.1.5, but
carries build configuration fixes for the issues above.

  * Add CMake build support. The autoconf build support is now deprecated, and
    will be removed in the next release.

  * Add AppVeyor configuration, for Windows CI coverage.

  * Small performance improvement on little-endian PowerPC.

  * Small performance improvement on LLVM with position-independent executables.

  * Fix a few issues with various build environments.

Log message:
Update devel/snappy to 1.1.3.

Snappy v1.1.3, July 6th 2015:

This is the first release to be done from GitHub, which means that
some minor things like the ChangeLog format has changed (git log
format instead of svn log).

  * Add support for Uncompress() from a Source to a Sink.

  * Various minor changes to improve MSVC support; in particular,
    the unit tests now compile and run under MSVC.

Snappy v1.1.2, February 28th 2014:

This is a maintenance release with no changes to the actual
source code.

  * Stop distributing benchmark data files that have unclear
    or unsuitable licensing.

  * Add support for padding chunks in the framing format.
