Subject Re: [VFS] Writing to Jar, Zip, Tar..
Date Sat, 25 Aug 2007 11:27:30 GMT
hi asankha,
the point is, that VFS depends on Compress which is a Sandbox component.
Cause of this Mario copied the compress code into VFS. It was planned that
whenever compress leaves the sandbox VFS will have an dependency on it.

Will wrote code for compress like i did. When it is submitted we have to
release compress first and depend VFS to it. It may be more effective
with that open TrueZip issue.
Problem is that not too much people are interested in seeing compress
out of the sandbox.

Best,
Chris
