LZ4 v1.9.1 Release NotesRelease Date: 2019-04-23 // almost 2 years ago
🚀 This is a point release, which main objective is to fix a read out-of-bound issue reported in the decoder of v1.9.0. Upgrade from this version is recommended.
🔀 A few other improvements were also merged during this time frame (listed below).
A visible user-facing one is the introduction of a new command
--list, started by @gabrielstedman, which makes it possible to peek at the internals of a
.lz4file. It will provide the block type, checksum information, compressed and decompressed sizes (if present). The command is limited to single-frame files for the time being.
- 🛠 fix : decompression functions were reading a few bytes beyond input size (introduced in v1.9.0, reported by @ppodolsky and @danlark1)
- api : fix : lz4frame initializers compatibility with c++, reported by @degski
- cli : added command
--list, based on a patch by @gabrielstedman
- 🏁 build: improved Windows build, by @JPeterMugaas
- 🏗 build: AIX, by Norman Green
Note : this release has an issue when compiling
liblz4dynamic library on Mac OS-X. This issue is fixed in : #696 .
