New command-line interface for listing archive contents, with Apache Commons Compress 1.1.

The Apache
Commons Compress
have announced the release of Commons Compress
version 1.1.

Commons Compress defines an API for working with compression and
archive formats, such as bzip2, gzip and zip. This release comes
with a new command-line interface for listing archive contents and
a new getLastModifiedDate method for ArchiveEntry. A BZip2Utils
class modelled after GzipUtils has been added, and there is a list
of bug fixes.

Commons Compress requires Java 1.4 or later. It can be downloaded now.
