Description

LSAC(v2)
The zlib packages provide a general-purpose lossless data compression library which is used by various programs. This update adds the following enhancements: * Prior to this update, zlib did not provide minizip packages. As a consequence, there was no library available for extracting and creating zip archives. This update adds the minizip packages to zlib to create and extract zip archives. (BZ#690835) * Prior to this update, zlib did not contain the pkgconfig files. As a consequence, some applications that use pkgconfig to check dependencies could not find the zlib library. This update adds the pkgconfig files to the zlib packages. Now, applications can find the zlib library using the pkgconfig tool. (BZ#803810) All users of zlib are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which add these enhancements.
