LAS Optimizer Updated to Perform Faster Decompression

Esri’s LAS Optimizer has been updated to include support for parallel decompression. The initial version supported parallel processing when going from LAS to Optimized LAS, but the other direction, going back to LAS, was single threaded. It’s now parallel in both directions.
