- Move info scriplet to preun
* Thu Aug 06 2015
- Update to new upstream release 1.7
  * The fast encoder, which produces a compression speed and ratio
  comparable to those of gzip, has been ported from lzip.
  * The option "-0" has been ported from lzip to minilzip.
  * If all the data to be compressed are written in advance, lzlib
  will automatically adjust the header of the compressed data to
  use the smallest possible dictionary size. This feature reduces
  the amount of memory needed for decompression and allows minilzip
  to produce identical compressed output as lzip.
* Wed Oct 01 2014
- Update to new upstream release 1.6
  * Compression ratio of option -9 has been slightly increased.
  * Minilzip now copies file dates, permissions, and ownership like
  `cp -p`. (If the user ID or the group ID cannot be duplicated,
  the file permission bits S_ISUID and S_ISGID are cleared).
  * The license has been changed to "GPL version 2 or later with link
* Tue Sep 23 2014
- Drop gpg-offline build-time requirement; this is now handled by
  the local source validator
* Sun Sep 29 2013
- Update to new upstream release 1.5
  * Decompression support for deprecated version 0 files has been
  * A bug has been fixed that would make an instance of
  "struct LZ_Encoder" unresponsive if "LZ_compress_sync_flush" were
  called at the wrong moment.
* Wed Jun 05 2013
- Update to new upstream release 1.4
  * Compression ratio has been slightly increased.
  * Compression time has been reduced by 8%.
  * Decompression time has been reduced by 7%.
  * Arguments and return values of functions in lzlib.h have been
  changed from "long long" to "unsigned long long".
  * "LZ_decompress_read" now tells "header error" from "unexpected
  eof" the same way as lzip does when the EOF happens at the header.
- Do signature verification
- Base name of devel package on main name
- Remove static libraries from installation
- Wrap description at 70 cols
* Thu Apr 12 2012
- update to 1.3:
  * Lzlib has been translated to C from the C++ source of lzlib 1.2. This has
    been done to avoid the dependency on libstdc++, making lzlib useful in more
* Sun Jan 29 2012
- Remove redundant tags/sections per specfile guideline suggestions
* Thu Oct 27 2011
- update to 1.2:
  * for large values of "--match-length", compression ratio has been slightly
    increased and compression time has been reduced by up to 6%
  * the option "-F, --recompress", which forces recompression of files whose
    name already has the ".lz" or ".tlz" suffix, has been added to minilzip
* Wed Dec 08 2010
- update to 1.0:
  * new functions: LZ_decompress_member_finished, LZ_decompress_member_version,
    LZ_decompress_dictionary_size, LZ_decompress_data_crc
  * variables declared "extern" have been encapsulated in a namespace
  * a warning about fchown's return value being ignored has been fixed
  * input_buffer has been integrated in Range_decoder, simplifying the code and
    making decompression slightly faster
- SONAME changed from 0 to 1
* Mon Feb 15 2010
- update to 0.9:
  * compression time has been reduced by 8%
* Tue Jan 19 2010
- initial package (0.8)
