[ANNOUNCEMENT] New package: pbzip2-1.1.5-1

Version 1.1.5-1 of pbzip2 has been uploaded.

PBZIP2 is a parallel implementation of the bzip2 block-sorting file compressor/decompressor that uses pthreads and achieves near-linear speedup on SMP machines. The output of this version is fully compatible with bzip2.*

This is the first Cygwin release of this program. Note there is a win32 native release available that is slightly faster than the Cygwin version, but the Cygwin version still achieves near-linear speedup.

*(There are occasional non-standard bzip2 implementations that will work on basic bzip2 archives and not pbzip2 archives, but any standard bzip2 should work.)
