I was looking in uClinux-dist/lib/zlib, and it looks like from the README 
that this is zlib 1.1.4 - according to 
<outbind://http://www.zlib.net/ChangeLog.txt>http://www.zlib.net/ChangeLog.txt 
was released 11 March 2002?

According to the same, 1.2.0 (released 9 March 2003) includes new and 
improved inflate code (about 20% faster) and crc32 code (about 50% faster). 
Add that to the fixed memory leaks, fixed bugs, and improved malloc code - 
is there a reason not to upgrade to 1.2.2 (3 October 2004)?

The reason I ask is that I was digging into an issue I was having with mpd 
( http://www.musicpd.org/ ), which seemed to be fixed by upgrading zlib.

Thoughts/comments?

Thanks
-Robin
