Libarchive 2.8.5 is the latest release in the libarchive 2.8 branch.

This includes a number of bug fixes since the previous release and is
the best version of libarchive, bsdtar, and bsdcpio for general
production use. All users of previous versions are encouraged to
upgrade.

Specific fixes since libarchive 2.8.4:
* Now reads ISO images created by NetBSD makefs and other tools.
* Relax an lzma compression test to remove false negatives.
* Better handling of open failures and interrupted writes.
* Corrected compile warnings on various platforms.

Any problems with libarchive should be reported to the bug tracker at
