lz4-java 1.0.0 released

I am happy to announce that I released the first version of lz4-java, version 1.0.0.

lz4-java is a Java port of the lz4 compression library and the xxhash hashing library, which are both known for being blazing fast.

This release is based on lz4 r87 and xxhash r6. Artifacts have been pushed to Maven Central (net.jpountz.lz4:lz4:jar:1.0.0) and javadocs can be found at


For those who would like to get started quickly, here are examples:

  • lz4 compression and decompression
  • block hashing with xxhash
  • streaming hashing with xxhash.

Happy compressing and hashing!
