It probably would have been even more useful to include a pointer to the code:


Looking forward to the discussion this afternoon.

I'm excited to announce that the decoder for the new Brotli byte-level compression algorithm is now open-source. We're still working on open sourcing the encoder and the font-level tools, and are preparing formal documentation of the format. Even so, this release should help people get started evaluating the proposal.

The code was written by Jyrki Alakuijala and Zoltan Szabadka of the Google compression team in Zurich.

We will be talking in detail about the progress with Brotli at the working group face to face meeting this afternoon, including results of compression ratio and speed. We'll share our presentation with the mailing list also.

If there are any questions regarding this open source release, please let me know.
