Version 2.0 RC. This is completely new version of our software. We hope it is much more mature and ready to be used for industrial purposes. Main changes:
  • Better compression ratios.
  • Multithreaded design.
  • Very fast compression—even 500MB/s or more when using 8 threads.
  • Libraries for Python and C++.
  • Support for pipes (stdin, stdout).
