		ChangeLog file for zlib

Changes in 1.1.2 (19 March 98)
- added contrib/minzip, mini zip and unzip based on zlib (Gilles Vollant)
  See http://www.winimage.com/zLibDll/unzip.html
- preinitialize the inflate tables for fixed codes, to make the code
  completely thread safe (Mark)
- some simplifications and slight speed-up to the inflate code (Mark)
- fix gzeof on non-compressed files (Allan Schrum)
- add -std1 option in configure for OSF1 to fix gzprintf (Martin Mokrejs)
- use default value of 4K for Z_BUFSIZE for 16-bit MSDOS (Tim Wegner + Glenn)
- added os2/Makefile.def and os2/zlib.def (Andrew Zabolotny)
- add shared lib support for UNIX_SV4.2MP (MATSUURA Takanori)
- do not wrap extern "C" around system includes (Tom Lane)
- mention zlib binding for TCL in README (Andreas Kupries)
- added amiga/Makefile.pup for Amiga powerUP SAS/C PPC (Andreas Kleinert)

Changes in 1.1.1 (27 Feb 98)
- fix macros _tr_tally_* in deflate.h for debug mode  (Glenn Randers-Pehrson)
- remove block truncation heuristic which had very marginal effect for zlib
  (smaller lit_bufsize than in gzip 1.2.4) and degraded a little the
  compression ratio on some files. This also allows inlining _tr_tally for
  matches in deflate_slow.
- added msdos/Makefile.w32 for WIN32 Microsoft Visual C++ (Bob Frazier)

Changes in 1.1.0 (24 Feb 98)
- do not return STREAM_END prematurely in inflate (John Bowler)

- compile with -DFASTEST to get compression code optimized for speed only
- in minigzip, try mmap'ing the input file first (Miguel Albrecht)
- increase size of I/O buffers in minigzip.c and gzio.c (not a big gain
  on Sun but significant on HP)

- add a pointer to experimental unzip library in README (Gilles Vollant)

- zmemcpy parameters are of type Bytef*, not charf* (Joseph Strout)

- Use const for rommable constants in inflate
- Eliminate memory leaks on error conditions in inflate
- Removed some vestigial code in inflate
- Update web address in README
  
Changes in 1.0.4 (24 Jul 96)
- In very rare conditions, deflate(s, Z_FINISH) could fail to produce an EOF
  bit, so the decompressor could decompress all the correct data but went
  on to attempt decompressing extra garbage data. This affected minigzip too.
- zlibVersion and gzerror return const char* (needed for DLL)

- use z_error only for DEBUG (avoid problem with DLLs)

Changes in 1.0.3 (2 Jul 96)
- use z_streamp instead of z_stream *, which is now a far pointer in MSDOS
  small and medium models; this makes the library incompatible with previous
  versions for these models. (No effect in large model or on other systems.)
- return OK instead of BUF_ERROR if previous deflate call returned with
  avail_out as zero but there is nothing to do
- added memcmp for non STDC compilers
- define NO_DUMMY_DECL for more Mac compilers (.h files merged incorrectly)

- prefix all global functions and types with z_ with -DZ_PREFIX
- make falloc completely reentrant (inftrees.c)
- fixed very unlikely race condition in ct_static_init
- free in reverse order of allocation to help memory manager
- use zlib-1.0/* instead of zlib/* inside the tar.gz

  -Wconversion -Wstrict-prototypes -Wmissing-prototypes"
- allow gzread on concatenated .gz files
- deflateEnd now returns Z_DATA_ERROR if it was premature

- added a dimension to all arrays (Borland C can't count).
- workaround Borland C bug in declaration of inflate_codes_new & inflate_fast
- guard against multiple inclusion of *.h (for precompiled header on Mac)
- Watcom C pretends to be Microsoft C small model even in 32 bit mode.
- don't use unsized arrays to avoid silly warnings by Visual C++:
     warning C4746: 'inflate_mask' : unsized array treated as  '__far'
     (what's wrong with far data in far model?).

- faster crc32()

Changes in 0.8 (29 April 95)
- added fast inflate (inffast.c)
- deflate(Z_FINISH) now returns Z_STREAM_END when done. Warning: this
  is incompatible with previous versions of zlib which returned Z_OK.

  (actually that was not a compiler bug, see 0.81 above)
- gzread no longer reads one extra byte in certain cases
- In gzio destroy(), don't reference a freed structure
- avoid many warnings for MSDOS
- avoid the ERROR symbol which is used by MS Windows

Changes in 0.71 (14 April 95)
- Fixed more MSDOS compilation problems :( There is still a bug with
  TurboC large model.

Changes in 0.7 (14 April 95)
- Added full inflate support.
- Simplified the crc32() interface. The pre- and post-conditioning

  Added Z_FILTERED and Z_HUFFMAN_ONLY constants.

Changes in 0.4:
- avoid "zip" everywhere, use zlib instead of ziplib.
- suppress Z_BLOCK_FLUSH, interpret Z_PARTIAL_FLUSH as block flush
  if compression method == 8.
- added adler32 and crc32
- renamed deflateOptions as deflateInit2, call one or the other but not both
- added the method parameter for deflateInit2.

  user-provided history buffer. This is supported only in deflateInit2
  and inflateInit2.

- use Z_FINISH instead of deflateEnd to finish compression.
- added Z_HUFFMAN_ONLY
- added gzerror()
