I released gzip 1.3.8 here for final testing before becoming stable:


This has all the fixes I've mentioned on address@hidden since 1.3.7
came out, and is a candidate for a stable release.

This one has only a few major fixes, which is a good sign:

* Fix some gzip problems:
  - A security fix from Debian 1.3.5-5 was inadvertently omitted.
  - The assembler is now invoked with --noexecstack if supported,
    so that gzip can better resist stack-smashing attacks.

MD5 and SHA512 checksums:
