    Infozip 3 released

    New features in Zip 3.0, released 7 July 2008:

    * large-file support (i.e., > 2GB)
    * support for more than 65536 files per archive
    * multi-part archive support
    * bzip2 compression support
    * Unicode (UTF- filename and (partial) comment support
    * difference mode (for incremental backups)
    * filesystem-synch mode
    * cross-archive copy mode
    * extended progress info and logging
    * improved archive-fixing support
    * improved streaming and piping
    * improved command-line parser
    * improved Unix FIFO support
    * Unix 32-bit UIDs/GIDs (requires UnZip 6.0 to restore)

    Future Plans

    The next major release of Zip will be version 3.1, with AES encryption, complete Unicode-comments support, extended attributes, and perhaps some other things.

    Decompressing Info-ZIP 3 archives

    PIM and PeaZip correctly recognize and process files compressed in Info-ZIP with the bzip2 option. I suggest that this be noted in the PIM and PeaZip doc files - users will know they do not need to wait for Unzip.

    (Tested on archives produced by rugxulo's DOS/djgpp compilation).
