LZ4 : New version

Yesterday's experiments provided some appreciable gains to LZ4, and therefore it seems valid to share them.

The new version of LZ4HC is, on average, 10% faster.

On top of that, i found an optimization in the decoder, which is valid for any LZ4 version.
As a consequence, both the "Fast" and "High Compression" versions get updated with a nice boost to decompression speed. LZ4 already was the fastest decoder, this makes it even better.

You can download both version at their new LZ4 homepage.
