xz-utils 5.2.4-1 source package in Ubuntu

Changelog

xz-utils (5.2.4-1) unstable; urgency=low

  * New upstream release.  Closes: #851615.
  * Standards-Version: 4.3.0 (checked).
  * Use an XZ compressed tarball for upstream source.
  * Add upstream signing key and verify tarball at "uscan" time.
  * Drop patches; all were applied or otherwise fixed upstream.
  * Update copyright file.
  * debian/control:
    - Use a stable repo.or.cz URL for packaging repo.
      Closes: #826382.  Thanks to Rolf Leggewie.
    - Use https for upstream homepage URL.
    - No longer Build-Depends: freebsd-glue on kfreebsd.
  * get-orig-source: Use https for upstream Git repository.
  * liblzma:
    - Remove compatibility tricks that permit sharing a process with
      liblzma.so.2.  This means liblzma.a no longer depends on libdl
      at run time.
      Closes: #919950.  Thanks to Josh Triplett.
    - Breaks: liblzma2 versions without symbol versioning.
    - Priority: optional.
  * xz-utils:
    - Lower priority of xz-utils to standard.  Closes: #685203.
    - README.Debian: Remove notes about differences from upstream.
    - Remove old NEWS.Debian.

Binary packages built by this source

liblzma-dev: XZ-format compression library - development files

 XZ is the successor to the Lempel-Ziv/Markov-chain Algorithm
 compression format, which provides memory-hungry but powerful
 compression (often better than bzip2) and fast, easy decompression.
 .
 The native format of liblzma is XZ; it also supports raw (headerless)
 streams and the older LZMA format used by lzma. (For 7-Zip's related
 format, use the p7zip package instead.) This package provides the
 development library needed to build programs using liblzma.

liblzma-doc: XZ-format compression library - API documentation

 This package contains a reference manual for the liblzma data
 compression library, in Doxygen-generated HTML files. The purpose
 of each struct, macro, and function in the public interface is
 explained.

liblzma5: XZ-format compression library

 XZ is the successor to the Lempel-Ziv/Markov-chain Algorithm
 compression format, which provides memory-hungry but powerful
 compression (often better than bzip2) and fast, easy decompression.
 .
 The native format of liblzma is XZ; it also supports raw (headerless)
 streams and the older LZMA format used by lzma. (For 7-Zip's related
 format, use the p7zip package instead.)

xz-utils: XZ-format compression utilities

 XZ is the successor to the Lempel-Ziv/Markov-chain Algorithm
 compression format, which provides memory-hungry but powerful
 compression (often better than bzip2) and fast, easy decompression.
 .
 This package provides the command line tools for working with XZ
 compression, including xz, unxz, xzcat, xzgrep, and so on. They can
 also handle the older LZMA format, and if invoked via appropriate
 symlinks will emulate the behavior of the commands in the lzma
 package.
 .
 The XZ format is similar to the older LZMA format but includes some
 improvements for general use:
 .
  * 'file' magic for detecting XZ files;
  * crc64 data integrity check;
  * limited random-access reading support;
  * improved support for multithreading (not used in xz-utils);
  * support for flushing the encoder.

xzdec: XZ-format compression utilities - tiny decompressors

 XZ is the successor to the Lempel-Ziv/Markov-chain Algorithm
 compression format, which provides memory-hungry but powerful
 compression (often better than bzip2) and fast, easy decompression.
 .
 This package provides the xzdec and lzmadec utilities, which write
 the decompressed version of a compressed file to standard output. The
 binaries are very small, so they can be easily stored on small media
 with some compressed files, and they are linked statically against
 liblzma so they can be used on machines without a compatible version
 of liblzma installed. However, they have:
 .
   * no compression support;
   * no support for writing to a file other than standard output;
   * no translated messages;
   * been optimized for size rather than speed.
 .
 For a full-featured xzcat command without these limitations, use
 the xz-utils package instead.
