Thanks, I wasn't aware of that. I'll CC: this to the lzip bug list,
since the ezwinports port should probably be mentioned on the lzip web
page next to the existing Cygwin and old non-Cygwin ports.


Thank you very much Paul and Oscar. I have just updated the lzip page adding a link to the ezwinports port. I have also mentioned the ports in the donwload section, including 32 and 64 bit ports of plzip, the parallel version of lzip.


For those using Windows 10 Anniversary build 14393 or later on x86-64,
another option is Microsoft's Bash on Windows package, which I expect
supports lzip. This also should be a way to run GNU tar, gzip, etc.,
which should be helpful for anybody doing serious work on the tz code
and data (e.g., regression testing). See:

https://msdn.microsoft.com/commandline/wsl/about

This page says that Bash on Ubuntu on Windows runs the Ubuntu binaries provided by Canonical, so lzip should work as it has been packaged in Ubuntu since 2009:

Best regards,
Antonio.
