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.
