    PeaZip 3.6.1 was released, change log http://www.peazip.org/changelog.html
    It is a minor revision for some fixes and for improving file manager (and providing all up to date translations in one package), while I'm introducing wider changes in the next release 3.7, that will be compiled with upcoming next stable release of Lazarus 0.9.30.
    I'm currently building next release on Lazarus 0.9.29 snapshot, .29 is the development version that will become .30, .31 is the next experimental version.
    The quality of the Lazarus snapshot I'm using is very good, and introduces impressive improvements over the old 0.9.28.2, but I'll expect the official stable release before switching the release environment to the new version of the IDE.

    Hello everyone,

    somehow it slipped through my fingers...:
    2011 02 26
    3.6.2
    FILE MANAGER
    (recommended) Improved recognition of malformed archives not explicitly listing folders' entries, now PeaZip is able to auto-switch to Flat view in order to show the full content of those archives in all tested cases
    Pre-set chunk sizes for DVD and DVD-DL decreased by 1MB in order to work without problems with most burning applications
    Better protection against unwanted multiple click on Ok for archiving and extraction operations

    WINDOWS INSTALLER
    Improved displaying information about the software to the end user

    WINDOWS PORTABLE
    (recommended) Packages now contain a default configuration file to allow application to run from first time in a read only path (not writable or protected by UAC) as standard user; a writable path is still recommended
    Best regards!

    Hi, I'm about to release PeaZip 3.7 compiled for Lazarus 0.9.30 (latest stable version of the IDE), I also cleaned up the code so it can be compiled with currently available 0.9.31 snapshots, in the hope of maintaining the codebase as compatible as possible with future releases of the IDE (.31 is the experimental branch for the future .32 stable release).
    Before releasing, I've uploaded the package for translators on Google Code, if anyone is willing to improve/update an existing translation or provide a localization in a new language the package for translators is here:

    The 3.7 release is now online, for Windows and Linux.
    As I rebuild all my Linux virtual machines for development and build of packages (Fedora Core 14 x86, and Ubuntu 10.10 x86) I'll be glad to know if packages works as expected on most distributions.

    Thanks. I was testing peazip with calgarytest2.zpaq. Extraction was correct but I noticed a couple of problems. Stored paths (calgary\book1) are ignored and extraction is to the current directory. Also, if I select list or test, then the option is ignored and it extracts instead. If I select overwrite existing files, or auto-rename existing files or auto-rename new files, or prompt, then the option is ignored and existing files are not overwritten.

    Thanks for reporting, at this level of development ZPAQ UI is still largely based on previous one, which supported only (complete) extraction, I'll improve it to support new commands introduced in newer release.

    About extraction respecting stored paths, what would be the best way to accomplish it?
    With command in this form:
    zpaq.exe x input.zpaq output/
    I've only "flat" extraction without re-creating stored paths for the output.

    Paths are stored in the filename field, like "dir/file" or "dir\file" (could be either) so you just need to create directories in the path and then create the file. Extracting just the whole archive is probably good enough because that's what most people want. It's just that the options are confusing because they are there but don't work. The easiest thing to do is remove them.

    Extracting individual files using libzpaq is possible but more complex because you have to skip over blocks you don't want. A file can start in the middle of the block and you would have to decompress and discard the segments before it, but you can skip to the end of the block. A file can have multiple segments in consecutive blocks. Only the first segment has a filename and the rest are appended to it.

    zpaq v5.00 gives a much simpler version of extraction without multithreading or OS dependent code with options to decompress to original or current directories or decompress everything to 1 file. The extract and list functions are only about 50 lines each. However it does not create directories because that is OS dependent. It also has a newer version of libzpaq that accepts ZPAQL source code, but that only affects compression. It is compatible with the official version.

    I am working on zpaq v6 which will support journaling, incremental update and deduplication to support large backups and uses concurrent block compression and decompression and a transaction style append-only update that is undone if interrupted. This requires a new format because the current one doesn't support multiple files or fragments in arbitrary order pointing to the same compressed data and does not support multiple dated versions of files. It stores the index in blocks separate from the data for faster reading. However it will still read and write in the old format for compatibility. Right now the code is a mess, about 3400 lines not including libzpaq and divsufsort.

    FreeArc archives

    Hi. Could you add Unicode support to .arc archives, i. e. support for the FreeArc's '-sc' option with parameter 't', which is closely analogous to the 7-zip's -scc switch. In particular, you may use the following analogous syntax:
    -sct{UTF-8 | UTF-16 | ANSI | OEM}
    P.S. Well, if you get some problems with the syntax of options or with the FreeArc's documentation and don't know HS (), then I believe you can ask Bulat for help.

    Peazip 5.0 - direct links of Plain versions - no 3rd party bundle to skip.

    PeaZip is a cross platform file manager and archive manager utility that provides an unified portable GUI for many free, Open Source technologies like 7-Zip, FreeArc, PAQ, UPX.
    Features of PeaZip includes extract, create and convert multiple archives at once, create self-extracting archives, split/join files, strong encryption with two factor authentication, encrypted password manager, secure deletion, find duplicate files, calculate hashes, export job definition as scripts.

    Hi, since release 5.5.0 QUAD/BALZ binaries are in Additional Formats Plugin 2, a package meant to collect experimental formats, it currently also contains LPAQ1/5, and PAQ8F/JD/L.
    The package is published on PeaZip's add-ons page http://peazip.sourceforge.net/peazip-add-ons.html (add-ons page can also be checked from application's main menu Help > Check for plugin and addon).
    During one of latest website update it was erroneously published a page with outdated links pointing to Additional Formats Plugin version1, which lacked of QUAD/BALZ executables.

    Strangely QUAD/BALZ is listed as an option, and attempt to compress to such format lead to unexpected error all the time... I see no "please download an addtional package" message

    Hi, QUAD and BALZ executables are now featured by default in PeaExtractor http://peaextractor.sourceforge.net/ an extraction-only utility derived from PeaZip project.
    I published the first release only few days ago, it is a very basic application rather than a full-featured archive manager - no archive listing and testing (at the moment), just drag an archive on the application to extract it - as I received various suggestions asking for a "as simple as possible" single purpose application.
    While I personally prefer more flexible UI, each user is a different case, so I finally was convinced to work on it.
    This software too is written using Lazarus/FPC http://www.lazarus-ide.org/ and installer are made with InnoSetup, which is also based on Delphi / Object Pascal -like syntax.
