pylzma 0.4.1 released

I’m pleased to announce the release of PyLZMA 0.4.1!

PyLZMA provides a platform independent Python wrapper for the LZMA compression SDK and basic support for reading .7z archives.

Changes since 0.3.0

  • updated LZMA SDK to latest version 4.65
  • plain ANSI C now
  • fixed potential segfaults when running on 64bit (issue #9)
  • fixed compilation errors with newer versions of gcc (issue #6)
  • fixed compilation error on OSX
  • supports copy/zip/bzip2 compressed files in .7z archives
  • fixes CRC calculation across different Python versions
  • minor code cleanups

You can get the source tarball from the Python Package Index or from github. Windows binary eggs will be available in the next days.

If you’re using easy_install, grab the latest version using

easy_install -U pylzma

Please report any issues you are having with the new version to my bugtracker.

Update online

The new version is finally online on the webserver. You should experience much faster response times that with the old site.

A few initial articles have been migrated, so you can find stuff about Red5, pylzma and my tutorial about loading a DLL from memory here, too. Please let me know if you are missing something – and no, I’m not talking about all the spam comments…

Have fun, Joachim

BTW: I’m currently using the theme “deCoder” from webdemar, hope you like it!

Welcome back!

As I haven’t updated my old site for quite a while now and got a bit bored of its ancient layout, I decided to move on to something more blog-based.

So say hello to WordPress, hopefully this will result in me posting updates and fancy stuff more often 😉

I’m trying to get my old content moved here soon, so stay tuned for updates.
