+<p><b>tlmgr XXXXX (released DDmmm18):</b>
+<li>alternative fallback downloader support: if persistent connections
+  cannot be used (LWP not available), the fallback download program
+  can now be set to either wget or curl using the environment variable
+  TEXLIVE_DOWNLOADER. Esp. for MacOS and https curl is recommended.</li>
+<li>alternative compressor format support: backups and intermediate
+  rollback containers were always created with xz. By setting
+  TEXLIVE_COMPRESSOR to one of xz, lz4, gzip one can select a different
+  format. In particular lz4 and gzip are much faster in producing 
+  the backup containers.</li>
 <p><b>tlmgr 47303 (released 14apr18):</b>
 <li>uninstall now a synonym for remove, so requiring --all to remove the
 TeX Live installation.
