better gain with this version

Nice. It might result in Arch Linux ARM to switch to zstd.

They haven't yet, which is why we haven't either.

It is now on the arm-unstable branch if you want to test it :

The main issue according to me is that it is not already in the kernel : https://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=news_item&px=Zstd-Linux-Compressed-2020
Even if it is used internally at Facebook and gives good results :

Hope it will end up in the kernel this year...
