About a week ago we added a LZMA compressed tarball to the
GraphicsMagick snapshot distribution formats. LZMA is supported by
tools from http://tukaani.org/lzma/.
Today we added a 7-Zip compressed archive of the full Windows source
package. 7-Zip is supported under Windows via software from
http://www.7-zip.org/. The improvement in compression is quite
impressive, with the 7-Zip archive being about 1/2 the size of the ZIP
archive. That is good since the ZIP file is 24MB! If users are happy
with 7-Zip we will eventually stop producing ZIP for the Windows
As usual, development snapshots may be downloaded from
let me know about any problems.
