Released 2006

lrzip is a file compression utility and compressed file format. It was adapted from rzip, but is not compatible with it. Like rzip, it bases its high compression rate on the exploitation of long-range redundancies in the data set being compressed.

The author suggests that lrzip could stand for either Long Range ZIP or Lzma RZIP.
