    1 New versions by Jean-Pierre Demailly 
    2 <demailly@fourier.ujf-grenoble.fr>

    4 grzip (>= 0.2.8) has been tested on x86, x86_64 and alpha processors.
    5 It should therefore be 64-bit safe and hopefully also endian safe.
    6 
    7 More testing on big-endian machines (e.g. LinuxPPC) is needed, since
    8 it appears that there are still endian problems.
    9 
   10 On 32 bit systems, grzip only works with files < 2GB in size.
   11 This limitation can be overcome (up to 4 GB on 32-bit systems)
   12 by using grzip with <stdin> and <stdout> rather than directly on files

   15 - Version 0.3.0, January 31, 2007
   16 
   17 * Added new scripts : grzdiff  grzgrep  grzmore
   18   and support for them in grzip main code.
   19   Thanks to  Simon Matter <simon.matter@invoca.ch>

   22 - Version 0.2.9, January 6, 2007
   23 
   24 * Access and modification times of compressed/decompressed files
   25   are now kept identical as those of input files
   26 
   27 * Added 'grztar' script
   28      grztar -cvf archive.tar.grz  directory     (create archive)
   29      grztar -xvf archive.tar.grz                (decompress archive)
   30 
   31 * Alternatively, patch to GNU tar (in build/tar.c.patch) to make it
   32   work directly with tar (as 'tar -cvfy *' or  'tar -xvfy *')
   33      
   34 * Added support files for Debian/Ubuntu packages
   35 
   36 
   37 - Version 0.2.8, January 5, 2007
   38 
   39 * Added -o option and possibility of processing data through <stdin>
   40 
   41 * grzip should hopefully be 64-bit clean
   42 
   43 * Minor issues fixed. Should now be close from beta status...
   44 
   45 
   46 - Version 0.2.7, January 4, 2007
   47 
   48 * Added -z -k options
   49 
   50 * Fixed segfault bug when using <stdout> (fclose() was applied to stdout!)
   51 
   52 
   53 - Version 0.2.6, January 2, 2007
   54 
   55 * Added grunzip symbolic link.
   56 
   57 * Removed all warnings by making appropriate (hopefully irrelevant)
   58   changes char -> uint8 in libgrzip.c
   59 
   60 * corrected a few minor issues in main program.
   61 
   62 * added an option -r which removes input files after operation
   63   (removal of input files is now disabled by default)
   64 
   65 
   66 - Version 0.2.5, December 28, 2006
   67 
   68 This new version significantly extends and improves release 0.2.4 of
   69 GRZipII by Ilya Grebnov (published on May 31, 2004).
   70 
   71 * Correction on line 287 of libGRZip.c, for a bug which caused critical
   72   segfault crashes:
   73      uint8 * LZPBuffer=(uint8 *)malloc(*(sint32 *)(Input+8));
   74   changed to
   75      uint8 * LZPBuffer=(uint8 *)malloc(*(sint32 *)(Input+8)+1024);
   76 
   77 * Written new interface grzip.c with more powerful command line options
   78   similar to gzip/bzip2.
   79 
   80 * Internationalization
   81 
   82 * Makefile  modified accordingly.
