    Because Cloudflare does not use a fixed numbering in its zlib git repo, updates does not always show up right away.

    Amazon improved the performance of zlib-cloudflare by porting the decompression performance enhancement patches from zlib-chromium.

    After the patches are merged with the Silesia Corpus, Amazon can see that zlib-cloudflare compresses better (smaller file size) and faster when compared against the original zlib (zlib-madler) on both Arm and x86.

    With these changes, zlib-cloudflare is now the best performing zlib fork for compression and decompression operations on both Arm and x86 systems.

    As Centminmod git cloned zlib-cloudflare. We as Centminmod users had been making use of these improvements for some time, quietly. (if selecting the zlib-cloudflare option in the centminmod custom file).

    wow thanks for the heads up Amazon's improvements to zlib library. Definitely will take a look at them for Centmin Mod :) Though busy right now with paid client work :D

    edit: re-reading that seems Centmin Mod's nginx is already using the Amazon improved Cloudflare zlib fork library as changes were made September 2020 cloudflare/zlib :D
