Changes for v0.86.0.518 (released 2010/06/14)

Breaking changes

  • In FastZip, the NameFilter erroneously removed too many escapes from regex. ZIP-1654. Contributed by John Lemberger. Note: This is a breaking change from 0.85.5 - if you had detoured this filter bug via doubled-up backslashes, please halve them - for example change @"\\myextract.txt$" to @"\myextract.txt$", or change "\\\\myextract.txt$" to "\\myextract.txt$".

New features and enhancements

  • Multi-member gzip files are now supported. Contributed by Geoff Hart.
  • AES Encryption and Decryption is now supported (except for ZipInputStream). ZIP-1649.
  • TarArchive now has IsStreamOwner property, for use with MemoryStream.
  • FastZip.ExtractZip now accepts an Input Stream.
  • Zip input and output streams can now specify buffer sizes.

Bug fixes, and workarounds for issues with other software

  • Zero byte files caused ZipOutputStream to create invalid zipfiles. ZIP-1648. Contributed by Mark Ritchie.
  • ZipFile.CommitUpdate failed on ODT (Open Document) files when updating in memory. ZIP-1650. Contributed by Dricks.
  • Exceptions occurring within ZipFile.CommitUpdate were being silently discarded. ZIP-1386.
  • Fixed "Size mismatch" exceptions reading zips created by SharpZipLib with an explicit entry CRC and Size. ZIP-1663.
  • Removed exception "Extra data contains Zip64 information but version 2.0 is not high enough" due to rogue zip creators.
  • Avoided "NTFS Extra data invalid" exception when reading zip files with zero-length NTFS ExtraData entry.

  • Add sample sz a commandline cs archiver for Zip files
  • Fix more end of stream return value bugs
  • Some tar bugs fixed

Changes for 0.6.1

  • Fix from John Reilly jfreilly@hotmail.com: A couple of things to fix up in TarInputStream. Some Console.WriteLine stuff which should be removed/commented and a fix for handling directories.

Changes for 0.6

  • some return -1 bugs fixed
  • added gzipoutputstream mods from ben@blowery.org: "It writes out the GZip header to the base stream as part of its constructor. Unfortunately, I cannot write to the underlying stream (the HttpResponse.Filter) upon construction. I need to delay the header write until just before the first real write to the GZipOutputStream. I went ahead and made the modifications to the library and it seems to work wonderfully."
  • Added patches from John Reilly jfreilly@hotmail.com many, many bugs got fixed.
  • Added unit tests to ensure a certain level of stability

Changes for 0.51

  • Support for crypted files (decryption)
  • WinZip can't delete bug fixed (thanx to JackmanG from the SharpDevelop forum)
  • The ZipFile class has now a 'ZipFileComment' property containing the comment for the whole zip file. Contributed by John Carto.

Changes for 0.4

  • Compact Framework support
  • Tar bug fixed by Lloyd Dupont
  • Hopefully this time the date bug is fixed
  • SharpZipLib is now strong named and installGAC/uninstallGAC scripts are provided

Changes for 0.31

  • The Read method in the gzipstream returned still -1 instead of 0 at the eos

Changes for 0.3

  • Problem description: The BinaryDeserializer explicitly checks the length of the input stream you hand it, and throws an exception if you try to deserialize from a stream that reports a length of zero. Unfortunately, InflaterInputStream reports a length of zero when you first query it. Fixed by Joel Mueller jmueller@delani.com: The InflaterInputStream constructor (Stream, Inflater, int) is changed so that InflaterInputStream.len is initialized to baseInputStream.Length instead of zero.
  • Problem description: When you try to get all entries of your ZipFile class over a foreach(ZipEntry e in zFile) loop, you get all except the first one. I think the reason for this is: your index member (ptr) is initialized with value 0. Because your function MoveNext() first increases ptr and then the entry is accessed the first entry is skipped.
  • Bugfix date/time bug by Rainer Prem Rainer@Prem.de
  • Renamed the library to SharpZipLib (#ZipLib for short)
  • Added bzip2 compression/decompression
  • The Read method returns 0 instead of -1, when the end of the stream is reached. (this is defined by the .NET library)
  • Added tar support
  • The Date/Time now works better when reading zip files.
  • Fixed a rare compression bug (exception while zip/gzip specific files)

Changes for 0.2

  • Added new property in ZipEntry: DateTime Datetime {get; set;} (gets/sets datetime of an entry; should be easier to handle than the dos time. (int value))
  • Added new class: ZipFile. This class allows easy reading of a zipped file and it's entries.
  • Changed the ZipOutputStream behavior: Now it writes the Size, Crc, Compressed size in the header, if the baseOutputStream is able to seek (which should be true for all files). Some crunchers had problems unpacking the files which had the Size, Crc, Compressed size fields in the data descriptor after the file data.
  • CompressionMethod is now an enumeration instead of a int.
  • Changed many internal Get/Set methods into C# properties.
  • The base methods in the Deflater/Inflater Streams are now called correctly; it should work to use this construct (at least in my CVS library it does): new InflaterInputStream(new DeflaterOutputStream(new IOStream());
  • Fixed bug: DeflateFast had a bug which is now (hopefully) gone. This bug was in the original Java version too. (But please test fast deflate (compression level 1-3))
