This release updates Zstandard to the latest upstream version, which is
a maintenance release with performance improvements and bugfixes.

Zstandard, or zstd as short version, is a fast lossless compression
algorithm, targeting real-time compression scenarios at zlib-level and
better compression ratios.

Besides a standalone compression tool, development headers and a library
with comprehensive API are available both for Cygwin native applications
and cross-compilation toolchains in the following sub-packages:



This version is compiled with support for GZip, LZ4 and Xz compression.
Support for legacy formats from versions before 1.0 has been removed.

Version 1.4.6 was not released, this version number was used for source
synchronisation with the Linux kernel.

Version 1.4.7 had an alignment bug that also affected 32bit Cygwin and
was fixed with 1.4.8.
