Hi all,

this is a minor upstream update. So please sign off. I ave also added
make check to the PKGBUILD.



PS: here is the upstream changelog:

  * LZMA2 decompressor now correctly accepts LZMA2 streams with no
    uncompressed data. Previously it considered them corrupt. The
    bug can affect applications that use raw LZMA2 streams. It is
    very unlikely to affect .xz files because no compressor creates
    .xz files with empty LZMA2 streams. (Empty .xz files are a
    different thing than empty LZMA2 streams.)

  * "xz --suffix=.foo filename.foo" now refuses to compress the
    file due to it already having the suffix .foo. It was already
    documented on the man page, but the code lacked the test.

  * "xzgrep -l foo bar.xz" works now.

  * Polish translation was added.
