    This is effectively just resurrecting an unmaintained project, so at this stage, no - this release is just introducing a more conventional build, and merging some distro patches that have accumulated over the years.

      lbzip2 has much better performance if you have more than a single CPU core. if you have enough cores, it's even faster than lz4.
