libdeflate 1.6

A library for fast, whole-buffer DEFLATE-based compression
and decompression

libdeflate is a library for fast, whole-buffer DEFLATE-based
compression and decompression.
The supported formats are:
    DEFLATE (raw),
    zlib (a.k.a. DEFLATE with a zlib wrapper),
    gzip (a.k.a. DEFLATE with a gzip wrapper).
libdeflate is heavily optimized. It is significantly faster than
the zlib library, both for compression and decompression, and
especially on x86 processors. In addition, libdeflate provides
optional high compression modes that provide a better compression
ratio than the zlib's 'level 9'.
