Compressing Languages

Lzma on OpenSolaris: "The author of LZMA, Igor Pavlov, was not only willing to relicense the source code under CDDL ... but also willing to re-write the compression code in C. And, he did that in just a matter of couple of weeks -- truly outstanding. That, to me, is the power behind open source and the sharing opportunities it provides for the broader good." -- Alok Aggarwal, commenting on getting full language support on to the new OpenSolaris CD.

That seems like a wonderful contribution to the OpenSolaris community around the world on the eve of the OpenSolaris 2008.05 release. Test OpenSolaris RC2 here. Sign up to indiana-discuss to talk about it. Post to and read the indiana-discuss jive forum here.
