msys zlib =============================================================================== zlib is a general purpose data compression library. All the code is thread safe. The data format used by the zlib library is described by RFCs (Request for Comments) 1950 to 1952 in the files http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc1950.txt (zlib format), rfc1951.txt (deflate format) and rfc1952.txt (gzip format). Release: zlib-1.2.5-1-msys Files: zlib-1.2.5-1-msys-1.0.17-src.tar.lzma (full source code) zlib-1.2.5-1-msys-1.0.17-doc.tar.lzma (FAQ, man, and example code) zlib-1.2.5-1-msys-1.0.17-lic.tar.lzma (licensing terms) zlib-1.2.5-1-msys-1.0.17-dev.tar.lzma (libraries and headers) zlib-1.2.5-1-msys-1.0.17-dll.tar.lzma (redistributable DLL) Notes: This is a binary release of the zlib compression/decompression library, compiled for use with MSYS applications. The source code is unchanged from that distributed by zlib.net, with the exception of a minimal set of patches to the configure script and makefile. The "src" tarball delivers the full unmodified source code from zlib.net, with the addition of the above two files. The "doc" and "lic" tarballs provide the documentation components, as identified above, abstracted from the source tarball, and repackaged into a file hierarchy structure which is suitable for installation into the user's installed MSYS directory hierarchy; for a standard installation, they should be unpacked into the C:\MinGW\msys\1.0 directory. Developers of MSYS applications, who wish to link to the zlib libraries, will require at least the "dev" tarball; this provides the libz.a static version of the library, libz.dll.a import library, for linking to a DLL version of the library, and the set of C language headers common to both. The DLL version of the library, msys-z.dll, is provided separately, by the "dll" tarball. As in the case of the installable documentation, each of these tarballs should be unpacked into the C:\MinGW\msys\1.0 directory. Please note that the msys-z.dll delivered by this package depends on the MSYS runtime msys-1.0.dll. Developers need to install and use the msys-system-builder (aka msys-dvlpr) toolkit to compile clients of this library; it may NOT be used in conjunction with the MinGW compiler (which generates native win32 binaries, rather than MSYS-dependent ones).

This build is based on the cygwin source patches, NOT any MinGW ones. It is only "lightly" ported -- that is, the sources have not been modified to recognize #define __MSYS__. Therefore, when compiling against this library, you should explicitly define the __CYGWIN__ macro, by adding -D__CYGWIN__ to your CFLAGS (msys-gcc-3.4.4-3 does this automatically). The DLL is named "msys-z.dll" to preserve consistency with earlier msys releases of zlib. Because it carries no explicit version number, the -dll package does not have a "Component Version" field, unlike most -dll packages. =============================================================================== ---------- zlib-1.2.5-1 -- 2011 Aug 31 ----------- * Adapt build system to use mgwport framework ---------- zlib-1.2.3-2 -- 2010 Jan 28 ----------- * Rebuild against msys-1.0.13, using (msys)gcc-3.4.4 and (msys)binutils-2.19.51. * Use -O3 -fno-unit-at-a-time to avoid optimization bug in latest msys-gcc. Also, don't use -mms-bitfields when compiling msys binaries. ---------- zlib-1.2.3-1 -- 2009 Jul 26 ----------- * First release of zlib for msys using new packaging standard. * Uses patches derived from cygwin's zlib-1.2.3-10 package.
