Hi,
FSE (Finite State Entropy) is a brand new entropy coder backed by Yann Collet (the guy behind LZ4) based on ANS (Asymmetric Numeral System), it could eventually be used as a interesting drop-in replacement for the Huffman encoder found in HPACK since it claims compression rates closer to arithmetic coding and faster processing than Huffman.
More informations and code over there:

Best regards.
