      Description

      Currently only gzip compression is supported.

      Whilst delta updates might be a feature currently being looked into, right now XZ compression support can make considerable space savings for artifact compression. In at least my tests my artifacts are approx half the size using XZ compared to gzip.

      Would adding a feature like this only needed to be added to the mender-artifact library?
