= Version history == 1.0.0 (2018-05-20) * *BreakingChange* The XZ module's methods now take any parameters beyond the IO object as real Ruby keyword arguments rather than a long argument list. * *BreakingChange* XZ.decompress_stream now honours Ruby's external and internal encoding concept instead of just returning BINARY-tagged strings. * *BreakingChange* Remove deprecated API on stream reader/writer class and instead sync the API with Ruby's zlib library (Ticket #12 by me). * *BreakingChange* StreamWriter.new and StreamReader.new do not accept a block anymore. This is part of syncing with Ruby's zlib API. * *BreakingChange* StreamReader.open and StreamWriter.open always return the new instance, even if a block is given to the method (previous behaviour was to return the return value of the block). This is part of the syncing with Ruby's zlib API. * *BreakingChange* StreamReader.new and StreamWriter.new as well as the ::open variants take additional arguments as real Ruby keyword arguments now instead of a long parameter list plus options hash. This is different from Ruby's own zlib API as that one takes both a long parameter list and a hash of additional options. ruby-xz is meant to follow zlib's semantics mostly, but not as a drop-in replacement, so this divergence from zlib's API is okay (also given that it isn't possible to replicate all possible options 1:1 anyway, since liblzma simply accepts different options as libz). If you've never used these methods' optional arguments, you should be fine. * *BreakingChange* Stream#close now returns nil instead of the number of bytes written. This syncs Stream#close with Ruby's own IO#close, which also returns nil. * *BreakingChange* Remove Stream#pos=, Stream#seek, Stream#stat. These methods irritated the minitar gem, which doesn't expect them to raise NotImplementedError, but directly to be missing if the object does not support seeking. * *BreakingChange* StreamReader and StreamWriter now honour Ruby's encoding system instead of returning only BINARY-tagged strings. * *Dependency* Remove dependency on ffi. ruby-xz now uses fiddle from the stdlib instead. * *Dependency* Remove dependency on io-like. ruby-xz now implements all the IO mechanics itself. (Ticket #10 by me) * *Dependency* Bump required Ruby version to 2.3.0. * *Fix* libzlma.dylib not being found on OS X (Ticket #15 by s0nspark). == 0.2.3 (2015-12-29) * *Fix* documentation of XZ module (a :nodoc: was causing havoc in the XZ module so it appeared to have no methods). * No other changes this release. == 0.2.2 (2015-12-27) * *Add* XZ.disable_deprecation_notices * *Deprecate* use of XZ::StreamReader.open with an IO argument * *Deprecate* use of XZ::StreamReader.new with a filename argument * *Deprecate* use of XZ::StreamWriter.open with an IO argument * *Deprecate* use of XZ::StreamWriter.new with a filename argument * *Deprecate* nonautomatic IO close in XZ::StreamReader#close * *Deprecate* nonautomatic IO close in XZ::StreamWriter#close * *Fix* incompatibility with Resolv.getaddress() in Ruby 2.2 (Ticket #13 by Ken Simon) * Goal of these deprecations is to sync the API with Ruby’s own Zlib::GzipWriter and Zlib::GzipReader mostly. * Add required versions to gemspec. * Comment format cleanup, results in better docs. * Internal code cleanup * Add more tests. == 0.2.1 (2014-02-08) * Build the gem properly on Ruby 2.0+ (PR #8 by Nana Sakisaka (saki7)) * Release the GIL when interfacing with liblzma (PR #7 by Lars Christensen (larsch)) == 0.2.0 (2013-06-23) * Fix #6 (errors on JRuby) by Ben Nagy * <b>Remove 1.8 compatibility</b> == 0.1.0 (2013-02-17) * <b>Add XZ::StreamReader and XZ::StreamWriter for io-like behaviour.</b> * New dependency on the +io-like+ gem. * <b>Add Ruby 1.8 compatibility.</b> Thanks to Christoph Plank. * We now have proper unit tests.
