Due to memory limitations, i changed the maximum memory usage for all programs from 448MB to 400MB. Impacted programs are WinRK and WinImp. Updated WinRK to 2.0 build 5. It's not fair to compare to 1.0 build 6 due to new bugs which cause some tests to fail and the fact that 12% less memory is available according to the new rules. But ROLZ completed successfully in all tests and the compression on that mode is improved. Even though it had 12% less RAM to work with, it done much better than the old version. PWCM mode will not be tested at this time due to a bug. ROLZ 1.0.6 = 3,243,487,236 ROLZ 2.0.5 = 3,180,806,995 Updated WinImp results to match new 400MB rule. WinImp 448MB = 4,025,316,275 WinImp (M2) 448MB = 4,081,826,449 WinImp 400MB = 4,025,171,358 WinImp (M2) 400MB = 4,074,729,865 Updated DGCA to 1.07. Same compression as 1.06.
