Name        : mingw32-bzip2
Product     : Fedora 10
Version     : 1.0.5
Release     : 5.fc10
URL         : http://www.bzip.org/
Summary     : MinGW port of bzip2 file compression utility
Description :
Bzip2 is a freely available, patent-free, high quality data compressor.
Bzip2 compresses files to within 10 to 15 percent of the capabilities
of the best techniques available.  However, bzip2 has the added benefit
of being approximately two times faster at compression and six times
faster at decompression than those techniques.  Bzip2 is not the
fastest compression utility, but it does strike a balance between speed
and compression capability.

This package contains development tools and libraries for use when
cross-compiling Windows software in Fedora.


This update can be installed with the "yum" update program.  Use 
su -c 'yum update mingw32-bzip2' at the command line.
