2021-03-21 20:15 (by giorgio_tani)

PeaZip 7.8.0 is ready for download!

This release introduces interactive extraction option, as alternative to policy-based unattended extraction implemented in previous versions (which is still available).

Custom file types can be set for "Extract everything for" action (extracting more context for previewing a file depending on external resources, as html, or exe), and archives can be created with custom extension.

On Windows, it is now possible to drag and drop extract content directly to third party applications, and taskbar icon's progress bar is now enabled.

On Linux, a new Qt5 build is available, which requires or equivalent to be installed - either using distribution-specific tools, i.e. apt-get install package:architecture, or copying the file manually to proper directory and running ldconfig.

211 file extensions are currently supported.

PeaZip is a file manager and archive manager utility (compress and decompress files, edit existing archives, backup data), focused on security and data protection, Free Software replacement for WinRar, WinZip, and similar applications.

Create (compress to) 7Z, Brotli, BZip2, GZip, PAQ, PEA, RAR (if Rar.exe is available), TAR, WIM, XZ (LZMA2), ZIP, Zstandard files, SFX self-extracting archives, and spanned archives (001 split files)

Open, browse, decompress/extract RAR / RAR5, ACE, APPX, APK, ARJ, CAB, DMG, IPA, ISO, JAR, LHA, MSI, UDF, ZIPX files and more...

Built-in archive conversion: convert or consolidate existing archives, from any read-supported to any write-supported type, e.g .rar to .zip or .7z conversion; repair FreeArc .arc archive format.
