              Release Notes: Use of the new BZ2_ naming scheme in dlltest.c, a modified makefile-msc to fix minor build problems in Win2k, and an updated README.COMPILATION.PROBLEMS. There are no functionality changes or bug fixes relative to version 1.0.0. This is just a documentation update and a fix for minor Win32 build problems.

                Release Notes: Support for large files (> 2 GB) on OSs that support it. 10%-25% faster compression than 0.9.5. Much better robustness with respect to corrupted compressed data. Minor portability enhancements: now builds out of the box on Cygwin, as well as Unixes and Win32. A couple of minor bugs in file handling have been fixed. Can be built as a shared library, at least on x86-Linux.

                  Release Notes: A couple of minor bugs in file handling have been fixed and files larger than 2 GB support added. Seems to work for Solaris 7 and Tru64 (nee Digital) Unix 5.0, and builds out of the box on Cygwin, Unixes, and Win32. Partial shared library support on linux-x86. More robust and faster compression, 10%-25% faster than 0.9.5.

                      Release Notes: No radical changes have been made from 0.9.0c, this version is mainly a slow evolution into a more robust, powerful tool. In this version, compression speed is much less sensitive to the input data, a very large performance hit caused by repetative data has been fixed, many small improvements in file and flag handling have been added, and a Y2K statement is now included.
