- (BREAKING CHANGE) The library now ships zlib1.dll (zlib-ng compat ABI) instead of zlibwapi.dll (zlib stdcall ABI) for faster performance. Please refer to for proper initialization.
- Supports multiple zlib ABIs - 'zlib (cdecl)' (default), 'zlib (stdcall)', 'zlib-ng (cdecl)'.
- (BREAKING CHANGE) `DeflateStream`, `ZLibStream`, `GZipStream` and helper classes are now sealed for better performance.
- Add `ZLibInit.TryGlobalCleanup()`, which tries to silently unload native zlib instance even though if it has not been loaded.
- Retargets .NET Framework 4.6.
