Package: wnpp Severity: wishlist Owner: Kevin Murray <spam <at> kdmurray.id.au> * Package name : libzstd Version : 0.4.0 Upstream Author : Yann Collet * URL : https://github.com/Cyan4973 * License : BSD Programming Lang: C Description : fast lossless compression algorithm Zstd, short for Zstandard, is a fast lossless compression algorithm, targeting real-time compression scenarios at zlib-level compression ratio. Zstd can also offer stronger compression ratio at the cost of compression speed. Speed / Ratio trade-off is configurable by small increment, to fit different situations. Note however that decompression speed is preserved and remain roughly the same at all settings, a property shared by most LZ compression algorithms, such as zlib. This will be co-maintained under Debian Med.
