pylzma 0.4.2 released

I’m pleased to announce the release of PyLZMA 0.4.2!

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

Changes since 0.4.1

  • improved speed on Windows (issue #10, thanks to David Agnew)
  • added missing files required for multithreading support to source release when packaged on Linux
  • fixed compilation with MinGW
  • updated wrong package metadata

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.

    I’m really impressed by the 7zip archive support. I found LZMA bindings for a number of languages, but the feature they all seemed to lack was archive file support. Thank you!

    Is there a version or build of PyLZMA release under the pubic domain license like the LZMA SDK? It would be nice to choose between the LZMA algorithm and the more full featured 7-zip library.
