CRUSH v1.0 - released 18th June 1994

First version of CRUSH

CRUSH v1.1 - released 1st August 1994

Bug fix for -f "optimiser" which sometimes prevented the very best archive
being saved. Bug fix which cause CRUSH occasionally to overrun the required
number of trials. Also a minor optimisation added to -f that almost always
improves compression. v1.0 and v1.1 are completely cross-compatible and
neither of the v1.0 bugs would cause invalid archives to be created.

CRUSH v1.2 - released 22nd August 1994

Bug fix for -f when using CRUSH to create archives on a different drive
than the current one. CRUSH v1.1 would report a invalid error and give up.
Also when using CRUSH v1.1 to compress a group of zero-length files it
would report a spurious percentage improvement. CRUSH no longer allows
extension .CRU for external archive name (an invalid choice anyway).
Extra optimisation added to -f when used with larger values (e.g. -f40).
As before, all v1.0 and v1.1 archives are still valid and v1.2 compatible.

CRUSH v1.3 - released 5th November 1994

Support for the new UC2 compressor added. UC2 outperforms ARJ and PKZIP
for most applications. Bug fix for problem when searching very deep
subdirectories.

  1. Very nice! Thank you for this wonderful archive. I wonder why I found it only now. Long live the BBS file archives!

  2. This is so awesome! 😀 I’d be cool if you could download an entire archive of this at once, though.

  3. But one thing that puzzles me is the “mtswslnkmcjklsdlsbdmMICROSOFT” string. There is an article about it here. It is definitely worth a read: http://www.os2museum.com/wp/mtswslnk/
