What are some alternatives?

When comparing zlib-ng and zlib you can also consider the following projects:

ZLib - A massively spiffy yet delicately unobtrusive compression library.

zstd - Zstandard - Fast real-time compression algorithm

brotli - Brotli compression format

Minizip-ng - Fork of the popular zip manipulation library found in the zlib distribution.

uzlib - Radically unbloated DEFLATE/zlib/gzip compression/decompression library. Can decompress any gzip/zlib data, and offers simplified compressor which produces gzip-compatible output, while requiring much less resources (and providing less compression ratio of course).

binary-serialise-cbor - Binary serialisation in the CBOR format

LZ4 - Extremely Fast Compression algorithm

Snappy - A fast compressor/decompressor

json-encoder - A single-pass JSON encoder with a declarative DSL

KArchive - Qt 5 addon providing access to numerous types of archives

LZHAM - Lossless data compression codec with LZMA-like ratios but 1.5x-8x faster decompression speed, C/C++

FiniteStateEntropy - New generation entropy codecs : Finite State Entropy and Huff0
