This is the 1.9 release of commons-compress. It is available in both binary and source distributions.
Note: The tar files in the distribution use GNU tar extensions and must be untarred with a GNU compatible version of tar. The version of tar on Solaris and Mac OS X will not work with these files.
Thank you for using Commons Compress.
From the Apache Commons Project
All of the files have been digitally signed using GnuPG. There is an accompanying file.asc signature file in the same directory as the file (binaries/ or source/). The signing keys can be found in the distribution directory at <https://www.apache.org/dist/commons/KEYS>.
Always download the KEYS file directly from the Apache site, never from a mirror site.
Always test available signatures, e.g., $ pgpk -a KEYS $ pgpv commons-compress-1.9-bin.tar.gz.asc or, $ pgp -ka KEYS $ pgp commons-compress-1.9-bin.tar.gz.asc or, $ gpg --import KEYS $ gpg --verify commons-compress-1.9-bin.tar.gz.asc
