2021-06-11 00:55 (by giorgio_tani)

PeaZip 8.0.0 is ready for download!

The new release adds support for even more archive types, and improves how container file types are managed for browsing and conversion; also, previewing files / folders in archives was improved.

Program's GUI was updated with new style menu (and icons) in status bar to make easier to change look&feel on the fly - i.e. switch from file list to preview images - and auto completion in search.

New password option "Force typing password interactively" allows to create archiving / extraction scripts requiring user feedback rather than running unattended.

It is now possible to customize the default action PeaZip will take double-clicking on an associated file type - open (as usual) or extract it.

PEA is updated to 1.01 version, which improves capabilities to run in background and interact with other applications.

On Windows systems it is possible to create CAB files with integrated makecab.exe, now available as pre-set entry in Advanced tab of Custom archive type screen.

218 file extensions are currently supported.
