Subject [ANNOUNCE] Apache Commons Compress 1.2 Released
Date Mon, 01 Aug 2011 04:31:54 GMT
The Apache Commons Compress team is pleased to announce the
commons-compress-1.2 release!

The Apache Commons Compress Library defines a Java API for working with
ar, cpio, tar, zip, gzip and bzip2 files.

Version 1.2 is a bug fix release and the last release expected to be
compatible with Java 1.4.

Source and binary distributions are available for download from the
Apache Commons download site:

When downloading, please verify signatures using the KEYS file available
at the above location when downloading the release.

Changes in this version include:

New features:
o COMPRESS-123:  ZipArchiveEntry has a new method getRawName that provides the
        original bytes that made up the name.  This may allow user
        code to detect the encoding. 
o COMPRESS-122:  TarArchiveEntry provides access to the flags that determine
        whether it is an archived symbolic link, pipe or other
        "uncommon" file system object. 

Fixed Bugs:
o COMPRESS-129:  ZipArchiveInputStream could fail with a "Truncated ZIP" error
        message for entries between 2 GByte and 4 GByte in size. 
o COMPRESS-145:  TarArchiveInputStream now detects sparse entries using the
        oldgnu format and properly reports it cannot extract their
o COMPRESS-130:  The Javadoc for ZipArchiveInputStream#skip now matches the
        implementation, the code has been made more defensive. 
o COMPRESS-140:  ArArchiveInputStream fails if entries contain only blanks for
        userId or groupId. Thanks to Trejkaz. 
o COMPRESS-139:  ZipFile may leak resources on some JDKs. 
o COMPRESS-125:  BZip2CompressorInputStream throws IOException if
        underlying stream returns available() == 0.
        Removed the check. 
o COMPRESS-127:  Calling close() on inputStream returned by
        does not close the underlying input stream. 
o COMPRESS-119:  TarArchiveOutputStream#finish now writes all buffered
        data to the stream 

o ZipFile now implements finalize which closes the underlying
o COMPRESS-117:  Certain tar files not recognised by ArchiveStreamFactory.
