My suggestion:

   fast, multi-threaded bzip2 filter program

Fixed, thanks.

   lbzip2 is a multi-threaded implementation of bzip2, suited for
   synchronous and parallel processing. On a multi-core computer,
   lbzip2 is commonly the fastest bzip2 decompressor for most bz2 files
   found on the internet. (On dual-core computers, the 7za utility from
   the p7zip-full package may prove more efficient.)

s/synchronous/serial/? I don't understand synchronous processing in this context; please explain.

Thank you,
