./devel/snappy, General purpose data compression library

Branch: CURRENT, Version: 1.1.8, Package name: snappy-1.1.8, 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:
all: migrate several HOMEPAGEs to https

pkglint --only "https instead of http" -r -F

With manual adjustments afterwards since pkglint 19.4.4 fixed a few
indentations in unrelated lines.

This mainly affects projects hosted at SourceForce, as well as
freedesktop.org, CTAN and GNU.

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.
