I was about to document the compression improvements upcoming in 2.5.0 and realized we lacked support for one of the major compression formats in use today. (Arguably brotli is not often used to compress data at rest, but is widely supported among web browsers and HTTP servers and clients.)
Brotli support for Java is provided by Apache 2 licensed Brotli4j available in Maven central.
It is not difficult to add it, so let's add it. There might be some advantage to opting for brotli compression when storing web data given the precomputed static dictionary of such content included in its specification.
