Compression/Decompression Library for Linux/Unix

Dear experts,

Could you offer me a well supported compression/decompression library which supports well-known formats. The library will be used in a C++ software for Linux/Unix environments. It can be an open source or commercial library as well.

BR,

I've always been happy with zlib (http://www.zlib.net/). It's commonly used, and has a good compression ratio.
