xz - Library and command line tools for XZ and LZMA compressed files

XZ Utils are an attempt to make LZMA compression easy to use on free (as in freedom) operating systems. This is achieved by providing tools and libraries which are similar to use than the equivalents of the most popular existing compression algorithms.

LZMA is a general purpose compression algorithm designed by Igor Pavlov as part of 7-Zip. It provides high compression ratio while keeping the decompression speed fast.

03.02.2019 10:26
  • xz 5.2.4:
    • liblzma:
    • Allow 0 as memory usage limit instead of returning LZMA_PROG_ERROR. Now 0 is treated as if 1 byte was specified, which effectively is the same as 0.
    • Use "noexcept" keyword instead of "throw()" in the public headers when a C++11 (or newer standard) compiler is used.
    • Added a portability fix for recent Intel C Compilers.
    • xz:
    • Fix "xz --list --robot missing_or_bad_file.xz" which would try to print an unitialized string and thus produce garbage output. Since the exit status is non-zero, most uses of such a command won't try to interpret the garbage output.
    • "xz --list foo.xz" could print "Internal error (bug)" in a corner case where a specific memory usage limit had been set.
