For a summary of changes and contributors, see:;a=shortlog;h=v1.11
or run this command from a git-cloned gzip directory:
  git shortlog v1.10..v1.11

To summarize the 2581 gnulib-related changes, run these commands
from a git-cloned gzip directory:
  git checkout v1.11
  git submodule summary v1.10

Here are the compressed sources:   (1.2MB)   (788KB)

Here are the GPG detached signatures[*]:

Here are SHA1 and SHA256 checksums:
  ee2d3f44d8b370db7090b4c3250132cd62b38ec6  gzip-1.11.tar.gz
  PooODEW60wCTQdzhfXFTbExlXZMTA5AhznVUomzVDtk  gzip-1.11.tar.gz
  adf4964893a45a211a888f8943c939f2794d86d4  gzip-1.11.tar.xz
  m5qV1o/cuTaEmk1vrai/hobN31i5smycQontDJKneQc  gzip-1.11.tar.xz

The SHA256 checksum is base64 encoded, instead of the
hexadecimal encoding that most checksum tools default to.

[*] Use a .sig file to verify that the corresponding file (without the
.sig suffix) is intact.  First, be sure to download both the .sig file
and the corresponding tarball.  Then, run a command like this:

  gpg --verify gzip-1.11.tar.gz.sig

If that command fails because you don't have the required public key,
then run this command to import it:

  gpg --keyserver --recv-keys 7FD9FCCB000BEEEE

and rerun the 'gpg --verify' command.

This release was bootstrapped with the following tools:
  Autoconf 2.71
  Automake 1.16d
  Gnulib v0.1-4886-g93280a4bd


* Noteworthy changes in release 1.11 (2021-09-03) [stable]

** Performance improvements

  IBM Z platforms now support hardware-accelerated deflation.
