Version 1.1.5-1 of pbzip2 has been uploaded.

PBZIP2 is a parallel implementation of the bzip2 block-sorting file 
compressor/decompressor that uses pthreads and achieves near-linear 
speedup on SMP machines. The output of this version is fully compatible 
with bzip2.*

This is the first Cygwin release of this program.  Note there is a win32 
native release available that is slightly faster than the Cygwin 
version, but the Cygwin version still achieves near-linear speedup.

*(There are occasional non-standard bzip2 implementations that will work 
on basic bzip2 archives and not pbzip2 archives, but any standard bzip2 
should work.)
