--------------------------------------

             Summary: Remove SharpZipLib dependancy
                 Key: LUCENENET-555
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LUCENENET-555
             Project: Lucene.Net
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: .NET API
    Affects Versions: Lucene.Net 3.0.3
            Reporter: Eric Dorothy
             Fix For: Lucene.Net 3.6


For a while now Lucene.Net has required the use of SharpZipLib for the use of compressed fields
in the indexes.  Can you please remove this dependency on a very old Zip library.  Even the
author has moved on and abandon the project in favor of his newer DotNetZip library.

I would suggest for the .NET API that you use the tools available in the System.IO.Compression
Namespace (https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.io.compression%28v=vs.110%29.aspx)
so that you don't have to have an external dependency to begin with.  This namespace was introduced
in .NET 2.0 and forward so no third party needs to be included.
