Announcing C-Blosc 1.18.0
A blocking, shuffling and lossless compression library for C
What is new?
A maintenance release where the copy of the leftovers of a chunk when
its size is not a multiple of typesize. Although this is a very unusual
situation, it can certainly happen (e.g.https://github.com/Blosc/python-blosc/issues/220

What is it?
) is a high performance meta-compressor
optimized for binary data. It has been designed to transmit data to
the processor cache faster than the traditional, non-compressed,
direct memory fetch approach via a memcpy() OS call.
Blosc has internal support for different compressors like its internal
BloscLZ, but also LZ4, LZ4HC, Snappy, Zlib and Zstd. This way these can
automatically leverage the multithreading and pre-filtering
(shuffling) capabilities that comes with Blosc.
