LZ4 source code now Opened
In this particular example, the most frequent Google request leading to this website has been "LZ4 source code" for quite a few weeks. So at least it shows a genuine interest for it.
Well, if you have been typing these few words lately, the wait is over : LZ4 is now an Open Source project, hosted on Google Code.
The version proposed is the "Ultra Fast" one, ready for multi-threading purposes. It has been ex-purged of all windows-specific calls, to increase the capability to build LZ4 for any other system, using a standard C compiler.
An example "main.c" code is also provided, featuring simple file i/o interface. Those willing to start from a ready-to-use Visual Studio project will find one in the "download" category.
Well, hope this helps. Now it's a matter of heating your compilers and test suites...
