-Andy



version 1.22 - Sergey Poznyakoff, 2009-03-05

* Support for xz compression

Tar uses xz for compression if one of the following conditions is met:

1. The option --xz or -J (see below) is used.
2. The xz binary is set as compressor using --use-compress-program
option. 3. The file name of the archive being created ends in `.xz' and
auto-compress option (-a) is used.

Xz is used for decompression if one of the following conditions is met:

1. The option --xz or -J is used.
2. The xz binary is set as compressor using --use-compress-program
option. 3. The file is recognized as xz compressed stream data.

* Short option -J reassigned as a short equivalent of --xz

* New option -I

The -I option is assigned as a short equivalent for
--use-compress-program.

* The --no-recursive option works in incremental mode.
