This package contains libbzip2 which is used by the bzip2 compressor.
bzip2 is a freely available, patent free, data compressor.
bzip2 compresses files using the Burrows-Wheeler block-sorting text
compression algorithm, and Huffman coding.  Compression is generally
considerably better than that achieved by more conventional
LZ77/LZ78-based compressors, and approaches the performance of the PPM
family of statistical compressors.
The archive file format of bzip2 (.bz2) is incompatible with that of its
predecessor, bzip (.bz).

[ Santiago Ruano Rincón ]
* debian/control: use secure Vcs- urls.
* Bump Standards-Version to 3.9.8. No changes needed.
* Add 40-bzdiff-l.patch: bzdiff properly passes -I option to diff.
Patch from Ubuntu.
[ Nicolas Boulenguez ]
* Allow -doc package to satisfy Multi-Arch: foreign dependencies.
Remove duplicate Section: and Priority:.
* Refresh patches without all timestamp noise.
* Document some patches.
* Add basic runtime test.
* Split bzdiff-tmpdir-spaces.diff out of 20-legacy.patch.
* Split bzip2recover-race-open-output.diff out of 20-legacy.patch.
* Standards-Version 4.1.4.
* Generate the manual during build instead of embedding it in a patch.
* Do not add trailing blank spaces in patches.
* Split bzexe out of 20-legacy.patch.
Whether bzexe is suggested upstream or maintained in Debian forever,
it will be easyer to manage as a normal file than as an upstream patch.
* Split the patch documenting --help option.
* Pass -D_REENTRANT via CPPFLAGS instead of a patch.
The patch only makes upstream handle CPPFLAGS, which may be accepted
independently of the shared library.
* Split quoting of XML special characters from 20-legacy.diff.
* Split the patch building a shared library and handling build flags.
* Fix split of bzexe, install it to /bin/.
* Drop Postscript documentation.
Regeneration of the PS/PDF files fails with interesting messages in
the LaTeX log. Since Debian policy recommends HTML as the default
documentation format, and we are able to regenerate this HTML from the
patched source, it is probably better to provide only this format.

* Point Vcs-* URLs to
* Bump Standards-Version to 4.2.0 (no change).
* Change Homepage to that archived on because the domain has expired and may change hands, as reported
at  (Closes: #905823)
* Disable debian/watch as has expired and may change hands.
* Revise bzip2 package description and remove performance comparison
with other compression software.  (Closes: #636184)
* Revert to using pristine upstream manual.{html,ps} documentation
without rebuilding, and install manual.pdf too.
* Add myself to the list of Uploaders.
