cross-platform file archiver utility




PeaZip project development change log

PeaZip 8.0.0 introduces many under the hood updates, improving how container type files are managed for browsing and conversion, improving use of TAR format, allowing to create scripts requiring interactively typing password, improving search, preview functions, random password generation.
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 list to viewer mode for previewing images.
It is now possible to customize the default action PeaZip will take opening an associated file type - open (as usual) or directly extract it.
PEA is updated to 1.01 version, which improves capabilities to run in background and interact with other applications.
On Windows systems, makecab.exe can now be easily used from PeaZip, as pre-set available in Advanced tab of custom archive type screen.

A total of 218 file extensions can now be managed by PeaZip, with addition of .xappx format, and various Open Packaging Conventions filetypes (.3mf, .vsdx, .mmzx, .aasx, .slx, .scdoc)

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 directory for newer language files and for any resource useful for translators.

PeaZip 8 change log (current version)

2021 06 10 .. CURRENT

2021 06 10
PEA 1.01
Added exit codes to functions for easier integration with third party software and scripts
Running PEA in batch_report and hidden_report mode automatically saves task log without further user interaction
Fixed: hidden and hidden_report modes do not flash the GUI before hiding it
Updated online documentation at
CAB (Windows)
Selecting custom format (and deselecting RAR checkbx, if selected) in Advanced tab it is now available "CAB" preset in custom executable dropdown menu, to use Windows' makecab.exe utility (which accepts single files as input)

Various fixes and improvements

Added support for .xappx, and various Open Packaging Conventions filetypes (.3mf, .vsdx, .mmzx, .aasx, .slx, .scdoc) files, 218 file extensions supported
 by default support is read only, to enable write support check "Edit non-canonical archive types" in main menu, Options > Settings > Archive manager
Added text completion for search field
Checksum/hash files can now be set to perform a single algorithm (faster), by default SHA256
Performing all algorithms at once, or all common algorithms at once, is available as option in Option > Settings > File manager
Dragging a single archive file on file manager screen, the archive is now opened without requiring further interaction
Improved preview and open with functions
If nothing is selected, preview takes current directory as input
To avoid confusion with "Preview" actions submenu, "Extract and open with" sumbenu can now be enabled / disabled from Options > Setings > Archive manager
Improved random password generator in main menu, Tools > Create random password / keyfile
Default length is now 12 characters
Quote characters ' and " are avoided to keep the password console-friendly regardless the character escaping abilities of the scripting environment that will be employed by the user
Improved smart sorting of file names
Improved status bar
Browser modes "Details" and "Icons and images" can now be selected with a single click from icons on status bar
Style dropdown menu button on the left of browser modes icons, on status bar, allows to set most common UI settings fro a single, easily visible place:
set tool bar to archive manager, file manager, images manager
toggle tab bar on/off
toggle row select on/off
set browser preset modes
set themes
set side bar to navigation panel, treeview, or hidden
 Style menu entries are replicated also in context menu, Navigation submenu
Improved support for non-canonical archive types (containers, disk images, installers...) with new options in main menu, Options > Settings > Archive manager
"Browse non-canonical archive types" (default on) set those file types to be opened for browsing on doubleclcik in PeaZip file manager; unchecking this option those file types will be opened with associated application but can still be browsed on demand (as any arbitrary file type) using "Open file as archive" menu entry
"Convert non-canonical archive types" (default off) will treat those file types as archives in Conversion process (extract and recompress them), otherwise those files will be left unchanged and simply compressed in the desired format
Improved theming: can now optionally display grids with alternate color for better readability
Replicated link to Text encoding settings in main menu, Options; extended hint for custom codepage

Added "Force typing passwords interactively" option in password screen that forces to always type password in the native backend interface
This option allows to create scripts that will require operator to enter the password interactively rather than running unattended
Zpaq backend does not support this option
Backends not supporting encryption are not affected by this option
Please note this option forces console mode for backend utilities (except PEA, which is a graphic application)
With this option enabled PeaZip cannot browse archives with encrypted name of files (encrypted toc), but it is anyway possible to list/test/extract them
Can now edit existing 7Z-compressed sfx archives
Improved "TAR before" option, which saves multiple input to TAR archive before compression step
Option to delete original files now works whith "TAR before" option enabled
Tasks with "TAR before" option enabled can now be saved as command line
It is now possible to customize the default action to perform when a file type associated with PeaZip is double-clicked on the system (or any time a single file is sent as input to PeaZip)
In main menu, Options > Settings > Archive manager "Default action on start-up" can be set to
Open, default
Open as archive, force trying to open any arbitrary file type as archive
Extract..., show full extraction screen to enter password and change options before confirming extraction
Extract here, immediately start extraction with default parameters
