contrary to what i said ealier, there is now a way to get list of
known files, with their times and packed size (if containter
supports that feature).
zip reader now understands all standard zip methods (including
"shrink", "reduce" and "implode"), and LZMA (no external lzma
library required). currently there are no plans to support BZip2
and PPMd compression.
internal structures creates less pressure on GC and way less
false positives: instead of registering the whole allocated
memory "just in case", getPointerBitmap is used to register only
pointers. and many internal structs doesn't have GC pointers at
added iv.vfs.io module, so it is possible to use good old
`write*`, `readf`, `readln` API on VFile. it also wraps standard
input and output, so to do console i/o you now can import
iv.vfs.io instead of std.stdio. there is also `byLine` and
`byLineCopy` API. not a speed demon, tho, so i'd not try to
process terrabytes of text data with it.
added zip creation module.
not really new, but worth mentioning anyway: there is nice API to
read/write endianness-neutral numeric values. readNum!T and
writeNum!T. and `rawReadExact()` low-level API, to read the whole
buffer or throw.
added Ken Silverman's GRP support. i had to mention it somewhere.
