See the NEWS below for a brief summary. Thanks to everyone who has contributed! The following people contributed changes to this release: Jim Meyering (9) Paul Eggert (10) Jim [on behalf of the gzip maintainers] ================================================================== Here is the GNU gzip home page: http://gnu.org/s/gzip/ For a summary of changes and contributors, see: http://git.sv.gnu.org/gitweb/?p=gzip.git;a=shortlog;h=v1.10 or run this command from a git-cloned gzip directory: git shortlog v1.9..v1.10 ================================================================== Here are the compressed sources: https://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/gzip/gzip-1.10.tar.gz (1.2MB) https://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/gzip/gzip-1.10.tar.xz (760KB) Here are the GPG detached signatures[*]: https://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/gzip/gzip-1.10.tar.gz.sig https://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/gzip/gzip-1.10.tar.xz.sig [*] Use a .sig file to verify that the corresponding file (without the .sig suffix) is intact. First, be sure to download both the .sig file and the corresponding tarball. Then, run a command like this: gpg --verify gzip-1.10.tar.gz.sig If that command fails because you don't have the required public key, then run this command to import it: gpg --keyserver keys.gnupg.net --recv-keys 7FD9FCCB000BEEEE and rerun the 'gpg --verify' command. This release was bootstrapped with the following tools: Autoconf 2.69.197-b8fd7 Automake 1.16a Gnulib v0.1-2305-g95c96b6dd ================================================================== NEWS * Noteworthy changes in release 1.10 (2018-12-29) [stable] ** Changes in behavior Compressed gzip output no longer contains the current time as a timestamp when the input is not a regular file. Instead, the output contains a null (zero) timestamp. This makes gzip's behavior more reproducible when used as part of a pipeline. (As a reminder, even regular files will use null timestamps after the year 2106, due to a limitation in the gzip format.) ** Bug fixes A use of uninitialized memory on some malformed inputs has been fixed. [bug present since the beginning] A few theoretical race conditions in signal handers have been fixed. These bugs most likely do not happen on practical platforms. [bugs present since the beginning]
