Changes in 1.1.0 (Mar 13, 2010)
- Added support for multi-threaded decompression using STDIN/pipes
- Added code to support throttling compression to prevent memory

 throttling starts (default 100MB)

 when compressing data from STDIN
- Added long options to man page and -h output
- Added --loadavg, --read long options
- Added support for CPU detection on Win32

 signal handling, program termination

 (needs USE_STACKSIZE_CUSTOMIZATION defined when compiling)
- Fixed command line parsing bug for -b, -p, -m switches
- Fixed infinite loop when fileWriter fails to create output
 file at start
- Fixed bug that deleted input filename (with .bz2 extension for
 compression and without .bz2 extension for decompression) when
 a user interrupts process with CTRL-C while outputting to STDOUT
- Fixed bug where 0 byte files were not processed properly when
 data input from STDIN
- Ignores fwrite return and passes chown errors in writeFileMetaData
 if effective uid root
- OutputBuffer usage redesigned as fixed-size circular buffer

- Special thanks to Yavor Nikolov for providing the majority of
