Dear Distribution Partners - Its' me The_Big_S,

[blink]WinRAR - What's new in the latest version - Version 3.80 beta 1[/blink]

  1. Added support for ZIP archives containing Unicode file names
     in UTF-8 format. When creating ZIP archive, WinRAR stores
     names in Unicode only if they cannot be stored correctly using
     the current single byte character set.  :D

  2. Added decompression support for WinZip AES encrypted ZIP archives.  >:(

  3. Improved Unicode support for RAR and ZIP archive names.  :confused

  4. "Ask before overwrite" and "Skip existing files" update modes
     are now available in archiving dialog. They allow to specify
     WinRAR behavior when updating already existing files in archive.
     Unlike already available "Fresh existing files only" and
     "Add and update files", these new modes ignore file date
     and compare only file names.  :yes

     Command line equivalents of these modes are:

     a) switch -o enables "Ask before overwrite" archiving mode;

     b) switch -o- enables "Skip existing files" archiving mode;

     c) switch -o+ enables "Overwrite all" mode (default for archiving).

  5. New "Add to context menu" option in "Profile parameters" dialog.
     If this option is on, the profile name will be displayed in Explorer
     context menus allowing to activate a profile from context menu.  :'(

  6. New -cp<profile name> switch allows to select a compression profile
     in command line mode. It is supported only by GUI WinRAR.exe,
     not by rar.exe.  >:(

  7. New "Options" page of archiving dialog contains the group of
     settings modifying the behavior of "Delete files after archiving"
     option from "General" page:  ;)

     a) Delete files. Delete files normally like in previous WinRAR

     b) Move files to Recycle Bin. Deleted files are placed to
        Recycle Bin.

        Command line equivalent of this option is -dr switch.

     c) Wipe files. Before deleting file data are overwritten by
        zero bytes to prevent recovery of deleted files.

        Command line equivalent of this option is -dw switch.

     All these options have an effect only if "Delete files
     after archiving" is on. You can enable any of these options
     in the default compression profile to change the default
     behavior of "Delete files after archiving".

  8. WinRAR "Extraction path and options" dialog is now resizable.
     You can use the mouse to drag its border to the desired size
     and provide more space for folder tree pane. WinRAR will store
     new dimensions of this dialog.  :educated

  9. New "Update" SFX script command and "Update mode" group
     of options in "Update" page of "Advanced SFX options" dialog.
     These command and options allow to check time and implement
     file time based updating;  :-*

10. SFX script "Shortcut" command and "Add shortcut..." command
     in "Advanced SFX options" dialog now allow to specify
     an icon file containing an icon associated with shortcut.  :police

11. New "Wipe temporary files" option in "Settings/Security" dialog
     provides more secure, though slower, way to delete temporary
     WinRAR files.  >:(

12. WinRAR and RAR display the total progress bar when unpacking
     a multivolume RAR archive if all volumes are present
     in the same folder.  :D

13. WinRAR and RAR automatically expand names of environment
     variables in list files. For example, a list file can contain
     lines like:


     This feature is available only in Windows RAR version.  ;)

14. Added support of TAR archives with non-zero "extra field" data.

15. Added support of TAR archives, which does not contain
     the end of archive entry consisting of 512 zero bytes.  :yes

16. Improved Unicode support when dragging files from WinRAR window. :(

17. Shift+Tab key combination can be used in main WinRAR window to
     switch the input focus between interface elements (files, comment,
     tree, address) in reverse order. In previous versions Shift+Tab
     used the same order as Tab.  :yes

18. Corrected a possible WinRAR crash when opening truncated
     UDF ISO files.  :confused

Thanks for the Winrar, Team to develope a latest Winrar 3.80 beta 1
