  • libarchive

    Multi-format archive and compression library

  • Project mention: The XZ attack and timeline | dev.to | 2024-04-17

    29. October 2021 At this point Jia Tan pops up, and the first thing we see from him is an innocuous patch to the xz repository, and while a lot of people believe he started out trying his luck with another library also known as libarchive, this is not the case, I would bet it’s more of a backup looking at the dates, being that there are a few days in between as shown in this commit.

  • pgBackRest

    Reliable PostgreSQL Backup & Restore

  • Project mention: pgBackRest: PostgreSQL S3 backups | dev.to | 2023-08-10

    This tutorial explains how to backup PostgreSQL database using pgBackRest and S3.

  • lzbench

    lzbench is an in-memory benchmark of open-source LZ77/LZSS/LZMA compressors

  • Project mention: Chrome Feature: ZSTD Content-Encoding | news.ycombinator.com | 2024-04-01

    For a benchmark on a standard set: https://github.com/inikep/lzbench/blob/master/lzbench18_sort...

  • p7zip

    A new p7zip fork with additional codecs and improvements (forked from https://sourceforge.net/projects/sevenzip/ AND https://sourceforge.net/projects/p7zip/).

  • squashfs-tools

    tools to create and extract Squashfs filesystems

  • lizard

    Lizard (formerly LZ5) is an efficient compressor with very fast decompression. It achieves compression ratio that is comparable to zip/zlib and zstd/brotli (at low and medium compression levels) at decompression speed of 1000 MB/s and faster. (by inikep)

    I'm still unconvinced about this addition. And I don't even dislike Zstandard.

    The main motivation seems to be that while Zstandard is worse than Brotli at the highest level, it's substantially faster than Brotli when data has to be compressed on the fly with a limited computation budget. That might be true, but I'm yet to see any concrete or even anecdotal evidence even in the issue tracker [1] while there exist some benchmarks where both Zstandard and Brotli are fast enough for the web usage even at lower levels [2].

    According to their FAQ [3] Meta and Akamai have successfully used Zstandard in their internal network, but my gut feeling is that they never actually tried to optimize Brotli instead. In fact, Meta employs the main author of Zstandard so it would have been easier to tune Zstandard instead of Brotli. While Brotli has some fundamental difference from Zstandard (in particular Brotli doesn't use arithmetic-equivalent coding), no one has concretely demonstrated that difference would prevent Brotli from being fast enough for dynamic contents in my opinion.
