    It looks like there is a big gap from Sept. 2004 to June 2007. All of the newer articles are only on video compression. If you look under benchmarks or source code there is nothing after 2004. The only benchmark it mentions that is still maintained is maximumcompression.com.

    Yes, true! Nothing to discuss or argue!
    Some _years_ago_, when I first tried to gather some information about compression, that site helped me a lot. But than it stopped for a long period and might not be as interesting for inventive and progressive programmers. I dont know who took it over, but maybe this site will be of interest in future again...
    Nevertheless, I thought it could be an additional source of information for people who look for a starting point or some information which is not state of the art nowadays.

    Best regards!
