peazip new features






PeaZip 9.2.0 improves the GUI with more customization options for address bar and tab bar, and re-organized support section, with easier access to online resources, documentation, issue tracker, and to settings relevant to privacy and security.
Under the hood the support for editing non-canonical archive types was improved, and it is now possible to try different methods to manage unsupported file types.
On Windows, McMilk codecs and sfx modules were updated, to support extra compression methods for .7z format (Brotli, FLZMA2, Lizard, Zstandard...), and on all platforms it is now possible to set an alias for 7z / p7zip backend to easily switch between alternative binaries.

A total of 230 file extensions can now be opened as archives by PeaZip.

Translations are available in over than 30 languages, any help is welcome to translate PeaZip to new languages and to maintain current localizations up to date, so please consider taking the time to give a look to translations repository for newer language files and for any resource useful for translators.

2022 12 18 .. CURRENT

2023 04 23

(Windows) updated 7z sfx modules using ones from McMilk's 7z fork v1.5.4r4, supporting extra compression methods
Can now use zpaqfranz as alternative backend for .zpaq format
To use an alternative zpaq fork rename the binary as zpaq and replace the zpaq binary in (peazip)/res/bin/zpaq/ directory

(macOS) Fixed open custom applications
Fixed compression method is now saved accordingly for 7z sfx format and 7z format
Re-organized Help section with quicker access to online updates, Plugins, Themes, and Translations
Privacy and Security section in main Settings tab, collecting all relevant functions, including Updates

Minor modification to themes and icons
Address filed can now set window color plus button color (new), window color plus accent color, button color (default), and accent color
New Compact mode for the tool bar, tool bar icons (for archive manager, file manager, and image manager) are showm on the right of the address bar while the tool bar is hidden
Themes were updated
In (peazip)/res/share/icons are now available alternative Windows icons with extensions, can be useful if file extensions are hidden on the host system
New options in Main menu, Organize
Tab bar can now be swapped with Address bar to be shown on the top (as common on Windows file managers) or on the bottom (as common on Linux and macOS file managers)
Breadcrumb bar can be shown as plain text address field, KDE/Windows file managers -like breadcrumb (default), classic Gnome Files -like, Gnome 4 -like, and macOS Finder -like.

Can now set a custom alias name for 7z / p7zip binary, to make easier to use an alternative backend, in Options > Settings, Advanced tab
Improved "Edit non-canonical archive types" (Options > Settings, Archive manager tab), provided the target file structure can be actually read/write supported
Can now edit existing files in non-canonical archives
Can now keep browsing files opened as archives after edits
Fixed: adding/updating files in non-canonical archives now targets the intended subfolder inside the archives
Fixed: (Windows) non-canonical archives without extension can now be edited
The option is now applied to unknow file types only, to avoid editing known formats not supporting the operation
The option now allows to treat non-canonical archives as 7Z, ZIP (default), TAR, or WIM files, to support even more derivate container formats

Added Convert scripts and context menu entries for all platforms in (peazip)/res/share/batch path

2023 02 26
Improved Backend binaries option group in Options > Settings, Advanced tab
Added option to adapt the syntax for a specific 7z version at runtime, syntax can now be set to 21.07 release (avoiding switches introduced later), in order to improve portability of the app to platform not having latest 7z build available, or when it is preferred to adhere to an older syntax to maintain compatibility with legacy systems
Option to use the system's version of 7z backend, rather than the one provided by PeaZip package, is now supported on all non-Windows systems; a binary or a link named 7z in system's paths is required for this feature
Pea 1.12

"Archive conversion scripts allow user's interaction" (default on) in Options > Settings > Archive manager, Archive group, allows to interactively customize conversion tasks saved as scripts when launched, otherwise the task will run as batch requiring no interaction and applying current application's settings
Improved archiving and extraction screens
"Extract then move to destination" setting moved to main extraction screen for better visibility
Added link to working folder settings (in Settings, General) on the right of the control
Set default output path for archiving and extraction moved in archiving and extraction context menus for better visibility

Fixes, clean up of legacy code
Improved progress bar
Improved speed and memory usage
about 10% faster using 10% less memory opening 250K items archive

Address breadcrumb adapts the number of displayed items on the width of the application window to improve usability
If the Tool Bar is hidden, main functions (add, extract, test/list submenu) are shown on the right side of the Address Bar alongside Style menu
From main menu > Organize it is now possible to set "Sort dirs before files" (as common on Windows file managers) or not (as common on macOS and Gnome)
Selecting one of the available tool bars (archive manager, file manager, image manager) restores its visibility if the Tool bar is hidden

Improved generation of scripts with "TAR before" option enabled
Compressed TAR archives can now be optionally extracted in a single step (atomic tar extraction)

Improved support for ZPAQ and *PAQ formats
zpaq archives are tested for encryption, to ask for password if necessary when opened, extracted or converted
zpaq-specific options are now shown in extraction screen (no longer needing to go to Advanced tab) whenever a .zpaq archive is opened, or listed for extraction
it is now possible to extract zpaq archives to absolute, full or relative paths
it is now possible to preview content of zpaq archives if a single file is in the archive and extraction option is set to relative paths
