3.0.11 is a bug-fix release addressing a performance bug and several crashes in the decoder (discovered by afl-fuzz).

The 3.1.0 release uses a 64-bit hash function, currently performs 3-5% slower and has 1-2% worse compression. Re: Release 3.0.9 on Github Version 3.0.9 is a maintenance release.
This release contains minor bug fixes and compiler / portability improvements. As explained in README, the site is still under construction; issues and wiki pages were transferred from code.
Checkins for 3.0.9 and a new "64bithash" branch are in the development repository, for now.
