I would like to add following librariy to the list.

DevelopDotNet Compression Library -

Freeware (even for commercial products) with source codes, Artistic License
(v. 1.0), it is written in managed C++ and it is based on
*ZLib*<http://www.gzip.org/zlib>compression library engine. Very good
perf. Good features.


p.s. Eric, I apologize for previous post, I do not noticed immediatelly that
I sending it not to the list, but directly to your email address.
