2009 March 22. The following configurations were submitted: 'Default, -m1 -s1 -b1, -m1 -s1 -b5, -m2 -s4 -b5, -m1 -s7 -b5, -m2 -s7 -b5'. 0.99b4 supports larger values for b-switch, so we use -b8 instead of -b5 (previously the maximum).

2009 September 28 updated configurations were submitted for 0.99b5, 2010 February 22 for 0.99b7 and 2010 March 1 for 0.99b8.

2011 March 22, 0.99c1 submitted with new configurations.

2011 October 11, 0.99c3 submitted. This version adds multi-threading.

2011 November 9, 0.99d1 submitted.

The program uses the archiver template to implement archiver features.
