v 1.0.7

Pixz (pronounced 'pixie') is a parallel, indexing version of XZ

The existing XZ Utils provide great compression in the .xz file format, but they have two significant problems: * They are single-threaded, while most users now have multi-core computers. * The .xz files they produce are just one big block of compressed data, rather than a collection of smaller blocks. This makes random access to the original data impossible. With pixz, both these problems are solved.


To install pixz, paste this in macOS terminal after installing MacPorts

sudo port install pixz
