.bz2 extension handling

The .bz2 extension belongs to the bzip2 compression utility which replaces gzip. You may unpack the .tar.bz2 files directly using one of the following commands:

        using the newer version of tar:
tar xjf

or, using the older version of tar:
tar xIf

or, with all versions of tar:
bunzip2 -c | tar xf -
