There have been a few minor bug fixes as well as
many build infrastructure updates.

For a summary of changes and contributors, see:
  http://git.sv.gnu.org/gitweb/?p=gzip.git;a=shortlog;h=v1.3.13
or run this command from a git-cloned gzip directory:
  git shortlog v1.3.12..v1.3.13

Here are the compressed sources:
  ftp://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/gzip/gzip-1.3.13.tar.gz   (796 KB)
  ftp://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/gzip/gzip-1.3.13.tar.xz   (536 KB)

Here are the GPG detached signatures[*]:
  ftp://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/gzip/gzip-1.3.13.tar.gz.sig
  ftp://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/gzip/gzip-1.3.13.tar.xz.sig

If the above links are not valid, use the following links instead.
As I write this, I am unable to upload to ftp.gnu.org.

  http://meyering.net/gzip/gzip-1.3.13.tar.xz      536 KB
  http://meyering.net/gzip/gzip-1.3.13.tar.gz.sig
  http://meyering.net/gzip/gzip-1.3.13.tar.xz.sig

Eventually, the following links will become valid.
------------------------------------------------------------

[*] You can use either of the above signature files to verify that
the corresponding file (without the .sig suffix) is intact.  First,
be sure to download both the .sig file and the corresponding tarball.
Then, run a command like this:

  gpg --verify gzip-1.3.13.tar.gz.sig

If that command fails because you don't have the required public key,
then run this command to import it:

  gpg --keyserver keys.gnupg.net --recv-keys B9AB9A16

and rerun the `gpg --verify' command.

This release was bootstrapped with the following tools:
  Autoconf 2.64.55-fb33-dirty
  Automake 1.11a
  Gnulib v0.0-2657-ge21985a
