ChangeLog file for zlib
Changes in 0.93 (25 June 95)
- temporarily disable inline functions
- make deflate deterministic
- give enough lookahead for PARTIAL_FLUSH
- Set binary mode for stdin/stdout in minigzip.c for OS/2
- don't even use signed char in inflate (not portable enough)
- fix inflate memory leak for segmented architectures
Changes in 0.92 (3 May 95)
- don't assume that char is signed (problem on SGI)
- Clear bit buffer when starting a stored block
- no memcpy on Pyramid
- suppressed inftest.c
- optimized fill_window, put longest_match inline for gcc
- optimized inflate on stored blocks.
- untabify all sources to simplify patches
Changes in 0.91 (2 May 95)
- Default MEM_LEVEL is 8 (not 9 for Unix) as documented in zlib.h
- Document the memory requirements in zconf.h
- added "make install"
- fix sync search logic in inflateSync
- deflate(Z_FULL_FLUSH) now works even if output buffer too short
- after inflateSync, don't scare people with just "lo world"
- added support for DJGPP
Changes in 0.9 (1 May 95)
- don't assume that zalloc clears the allocated memory (the TurboC bug
was Mark's bug after all :)
- let again gzread copy uncompressed data unchanged (was working in 0.71)
- deflate(Z_FULL_FLUSH), inflateReset and inflateSync are now fully implemented
- added a test of inflateSync in example.c
- moved MAX_WBITS to zconf.h because users might want to change that.
- document explicitly that zalloc(64K) on MSDOS must return a normalized
pointer (zero offset)
- added Makefiles for Microsoft C, Turbo C, Borland C++
- faster crc32()
Changes in 0.8 (29 April 95)
- added fast inflate (inffast.c)
- deflate(Z_FINISH) now returns Z_STREAM_END when done. Warning: this
is incompatible with previous versions of zlib which returned Z_OK.
- work around a TurboC compiler bug (bad code for b << 0, see infutil.h)
(actually that was not a compiler bug, see 0.81 above)
- gzread no longer reads one extra byte in certain cases
- In gzio destroy(), don't reference a freed structure
- avoid many warnings for MSDOS
- avoid the ERROR symbol which is used by MS Windows
Changes in 0.71 (14 April 95)
- Fixed more MSDOS compilation problems :( There is still a bug with
TurboC large model.
Changes in 0.7 (14 April 95)
- Added full inflate support.
- Simplified the crc32() interface. The pre- and post-conditioning
(one's complement) is now done inside crc32(). WARNING: this is
incompatible with previous versions; see zlib.h for the new usage.
Changes in 0.61 (12 April 95)
- workaround for a bug in TurboC. example and minigzip now work on MSDOS.
Changes in 0.6 (11 April 95)
- added minigzip.c
- added gzdopen to reopen a file descriptor as gzFile
- added transparent reading of non-gziped files in gzread.
- fixed bug in gzread (don't read crc as data)
- fixed bug in destroy (gzio.c) (don't return Z_STREAM_END for gzclose).
- don't allocate big arrays in the stack (for MSDOS)
- fix some MSDOS compilation problems
Changes in 0.5:
- do real compression in deflate.c. Z_PARTIAL_FLUSH is supported but
not yet Z_FULL_FLUSH.
- support decompression but only in a single step (forced Z_FINISH)
- added opaque object for zalloc and zfree.
- added deflateReset and inflateReset
- added a variable zlib_version for consistency checking.
- renamed the 'filter' parameter of deflateInit2 as 'strategy'.
Added Z_FILTERED and Z_HUFFMAN_ONLY constants.
Changes in 0.4:
- avoid "zip" everywhere, use zlib instead of ziplib.
- suppress Z_BLOCK_FLUSH, interpret Z_PARTIAL_FLUSH as block flush
if compression method == 8.
- added adler32 and crc32
- renamed deflateOptions as deflateInit2, call one or the other but not both
- added the method parameter for deflateInit2.
- added inflateInit2
- simplied considerably deflateInit and inflateInit by not supporting
user-provided history buffer. This is supported only in deflateInit2
and inflateInit2.
Changes in 0.3:
- prefix all macro names with Z_
- use Z_FINISH instead of deflateEnd to finish compression.
- added gzerror()
