What are some alternatives?

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

zstd - Zstandard - Fast real-time compression algorithm

ZLib - A massively spiffy yet delicately unobtrusive compression library.

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

libdeflate - Heavily optimized library for DEFLATE/zlib/gzip compression and decompression

LZMA - (Unofficial) Git mirror of LZMA SDK releases

brotli - Brotli compression format

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).

LZ4 - Extremely Fast Compression algorithm

Snappy - A fast compressor/decompressor
