Zhuff, what's in this name ?
no, i know it sounds like a beer, but,
it's a new compression software, aiming at the "faster than your HDD" category. Zhuff is basically LZ4 and Huff0 merged together, both being very fast.
It ends up with something which is pretty close in term of compression ratio to tornado -2 (from Bulat), or thor e2 (from Oscar Garcia).
That typically means compressed result within 2% of gzip fastest mode but 3 to 4 times faster.
You can have a try at the first released version here :
[Edit] a few benchmarks numbers (specifically targeting high-speed compressors) are graphically represented here :
