Subject [ANN] Apache Commons Compress 1.9 Released
Date Fri, 10 Oct 2014 16:16:21 GMT
Hash: SHA1

The Apache Commons Team is pleased to announce the release of Apache
Commons Compress 1.9.

Version 1.9 adds support for raw DEFLATE streams without GZIP framing.
In addition it fixes bugs in the 7z and tar packages and may improve
checking for the presence of the XZ for Java library.

The Apache Commons Compress Library defines a Java API for working with
ar, cpio, tar, zip, 7z, arj, dump, gzip, pack200, bzip2, lzma, snappy,
Z, xz and deflate files.

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 Added support for DEFLATE streams without any gzip framing.
  Issue: COMPRESS-263.
  Thanks to Matthias Stevens.

Fixed Bugs:
o When reading 7z files unknown file properties and properties of type
  kDummy are now ignored.
  Issue: COMPRESS-287.
o Expanding 7z archives using LZMA compression could cause an
  Issue: COMPRESS-286. 
o Long-Name and -link or PAX-header entries in TAR archives always had
  the current time as last modfication time, creating archives that
  are different at the byte level each time an archive was built.
  Issue: COMPRESS-289.
  Thanks to Bob Robertson.

o Checking for XZ for Java may be expensive.  The result will now be
  cached outside of an OSGi environment.  You can use the new
  XZUtils#setCacheXZAvailability to overrride this default behavior.
  Issue: COMPRESS-285.
