+Release 1.20
+Commons Compress 1.20 like any version of Commons Compress since 1.3
+can not be built from sources using Java 14 as Java 14 removes
+support for the Pack200 format. We will address this issue with the
+next release.
+Fixed Bugs:
+o SevenZFile could throw NullPointerException rather than
+  IOException for certain archives. In addition it now handles
+  certain empty archives more gracefully.
+  Issue: COMPRESS-492.
+o would return 0 for some
+  inputs in violation of the contract.
+  Issue: COMPRESS-491.
+o SeekableInMemoryByteChannel's truncate didn't set position
+  according to the spec in an edge case.
+  Issue: COMPRESS-499.
+o BZip2CompressorInputStream now incorporates a similar patch as
+  the one that fixed CVE-2019-12900 in libbzip2.
+  Commons Compress has not been vulnerable to this CVE as it
+  would have rejected a file with too many selectors. With this
+  patch Commons Compress will be able to read certain archives
+  that would have caused errors in Compress 1.19. Thanks to Joseph Allemandou.
+o Update optional library com.github.luben:zstd-jni from
+  1.4.0-1 to 1.4.4-7.
+  Issue: COMPRESS-493.
+o Update tests from org.apache.felix:org.apache.felix.framework
+  6.0.2 to 6.0.3.
+o SevenZFile can now recover from a certain corruption that
+  seems to happen occasionally when split archives are created.
+  Issue: COMPRESS-497.
+  Thanks to Stefan Schlott.
+o Added random access support to SevenZFile.
+  Issue: COMPRESS-342.
+  Thanks to Peter Alfred Lee.
+o Added support for split ZIP archives.
+  Issue: COMPRESS-477.
+  Thanks to Peter Alfred Lee.
+o Added support for reading sparse entries to the TAR package.
+  Issue: COMPRESS-124.
+  Thanks to Peter Alfred Lee.
+o Update JUnit from 4.12 to 4.13.
+o Removed the extraction code from the example CLI class inside
+  of the SevenZ package. Not only is it superseeded by the
+  examples package, its implementation was vulnerable to the
+  ZipSlip attack.
+  Issue: COMPRESS-495.
 Release 1.19
