What is ZLib?

ZLib is an open source lossless compression library. It supports steaming decompression, unlike LZO. It's licensed under the [ZLib license].

Libraries like ZLib can help speed up load times for games. If data is compressed then there is less data that needs to be transfered from the hard drive, CD-ROM or DVD-ROM, or network, hence speeding things up.
