Hírek

Néhány napja megjelent a WinRAR 5.60 Beta változata, amiben először láthatjuk az új grafikai kialakítását.
Természetesen most is igaz a szokásos figyelmeztetésem, ez még fejlesztői példány, komoly környezetben ne használjátok, otthon is csak saját felelősségre.
 

Aki kíváncsi, de nem akarja telepíteni, tessék, így néz ki az új arculat:

 

S akit a technika is érdekel, a legfontosabb magyarul, a többi a gyártói, angol nylevű poszt alapján:

A RAR5 formátumban immáron korlátlan számú fájl törlés és hozzáadás követhető nyomon, ill. javítható ki a biztonsági rekordok használatával
A RAR fájlokhoz fűzött megjegyzésekben automatikussá tették a különböző nemzetek kódkészletének felismerését.
 

   2. "Repair" command efficiency is improved for recovery record protected
      RAR5 archives. Now it can detect deletions and insertions of unlimited
      size also as shuffled data including data taken from several recovery
      record protected archives and merged into a single file in arbitrary
      order.

  

   3. "Turn PC off when done" archiving option is changed to "When done"
      drop down list, so you can turn off, hibernate or sleep your PC
      after completing archiving.

 

   4. Use -ioff or -ioff1 command line switch to turn PC off,
      -ioff2 to hibernate and -ioff3 to sleep your PC after completing
      an operation.

 

   5. If encoding of comment file specified in -z switch is not
      defined with -sc switch, RAR attempts to detect UTF-8, UTF-16LE
      and UTF-16BE encodings based on the byte order mask and data
      validity tests.

 

   6. WinRAR attempts to detect ANSI, OEM and UTF-8 encodings of
      ZIP archive comments automatically.

  

   7. "Internal viewer/Use DOS encoding" option in "Settings/Viewer"
      is replaced with "Internal viewer/Autodetect encoding".
      If "Autodetect encoding" is enabled, the internal viewer attempts
      to detect ANSI (Windows), OEM (DOS), UTF-8 and UTF-16 encodings.

 

   8. Normally Windows Explorer context menu contains only extraction
      commands if single archive has been right clicked. You can override
      this by specifying one or more space separated masks in "Always display
      archiving items for" option in Settings/Integration/Context menu items",
      so archiving commands are always displayed for these file types
      even if file was recognized as archive. If you wish both archiving
      and extraction commands present for all archives, place "*" here.

  

   9. SFX module "SetupCode" command accepts an optional integer parameter
      allowing to control mapping of setup program and SFX own error codes.
      It is also accessible as "Exit code adjustment" option
      in "Advanced SFX options/Setup" dialog.

  

  10. New "Show more information" WinRAR command line -im switch.
      It can be used with "t" command to issue a message also in case of
      successful archive test result. Without this switch "t" command
      completes silently if no errors are found.

      This switch is applicable only to WinRAR.exe and ignored by console
      RAR.exe.

  11. If a wrong password is entered when unpacking an encrypted file
      in ZIP archive, WinRAR proposes to enter a valid password
      for same file again instead of aborting extraction.

 

  12. If a wrong password is entered when opening or unpacking RAR archive
      with encrypted file names, WinRAR proposes to enter a valid password
      again instead of aborting the operation. Previous versions already
      did so for RAR archives with encrypted file data, but aborted
      for archives with file name encryption.

 

  13. WinRAR recognizes GZIP files with arbitrary data preceding
      an actual GZIP archive, such as .scexe firmware files.

  14. @filelist parameter can be specified in "Files to add" field of
      archiving dialog. In this case WinRAR will attempt the list of archiving
      files from 'filelist' file, which should be the plain text, one file
      name per line.

 

  15. Info dialog:

      a) compression ratio graph is updated;

 

      b) "Names and data" is displayed in "Encryption" field for
         archives with encrypted file names.

 

  16. Full archive name is displayed if mouse pointer is placed over
      an archive name in the operation progress window. It can be useful
      if archive name is lengthy and does not fit to available window space.

 

  17. If -ts1 switch is used with -u or -f, file time comparison is performed
      with 1 second precision. Previosuly in such case we could wrongly treat
      an adding file as newer than archived just because we compared the high
      precision adding file time against the low precision archived file time.

 

  18. "Update" and "Fresh" commands ('u' and 'f' in the command line mode)
      quit immediately if no files are to be updated. Previously they created
      a temporary archive before quitting when updating archives with recovery
      record or quick open information.

 

  19. Prompt is issued after creating 500 volumes from WinRAR GUI shell,
      so user can continue or quit further archiving. It is done to prevent
      creating many thousands of volumes in case of wrongly entered
      volume size.

 

  20. WinRAR uses megabytes instead of bytes as default units for volume size
      field in the archiving dialog.

 

  21. "Repair" command issues "Recovery record is corrupt" message
      after repairing RAR5 archive containing a broken recovery record.
      Previously such message was issued only by "Test" command
      and "Repair" handled most of recovery record damages silently.

 

  22. Bugs fixed:

      a) fixed potential security issues when processing corrupt
         RAR archives;

     

      b) non-English characters in TAR files with PAX extended headers
         were not displayed correctly;

 

      c) "rar x arcname.rar .." command unpacked files to current folder
         instead of its parent;

 

      d) pasting files from Windows Explorer to archive opened in WinRAR
         blocked further copy and paste operations in Explorer until
         archiving was finished;

 

      e) SFX module issued "The specified password is incorrect" message
         infinitely not prompting for correct password once a wrong password
         was entered;

 

      f) folders time was always set when extracting ZIP archives even if
         "File time" options in the extraction dialog were turned off;
 

      g) if "Delete archive: Always" was selected when extracting
         and user pressed "Cancel" in the file overwrite or password prompt,
         an archive could be deleted even after cancelling extraction
         for .zip and .7z formats.

Örömmel tudatjuk, hogy a https://winrar.hu új, modern weboldalt kapott.

Reméljük, mindenki örömét leli az új oldalban, mely már minden eszközre, így az okostelefonokra és tabletekre is optimalizálva lett.

Továbbra is várjuk az építő javaslatokat, hibajelentéseket!

Szinte napra pontsan egy év után, hat beta verzió után megjelent a hivatalos 5.50-es verzió.

Az újdonságok címszavakban:

  • A RAR5 archívum formátum alapértelmezett lett
  • A jelszókezelő rendszer fejlesztése magasabb szintre
  • AES 256 alkalmazása a ZIP fájlok készítésekor
  • LZ fájl kezelése

Természetrsen ennél jóval több fejlesztés történt az elmúl egy év alatt, akit érekel, böngéssze át annak kivonatos anyagát angol nyelven itt..

Egy rövidke beta teszt után megjelent az 5.31-es végleges verzió, természetesen magyarul is.

Nagy újdonságokat ne várjatok, a verziószámból is sejthető, kisebb hibajavításokról van szó.

Sok sikert a használatához, azérta rend kevéért lásuk, mi történt az 5.30-hoz képest:



Version 5.31



1. Following issues are corrected in Windows high DPI mode:



a) if text size in Windows settings was set to 150% or larger,

the font size in WinRAR help was not increased accordingly,

resulting in too small text;



b) default columns width in WinRAR file list was less

than expected for 125% or larger Windows text setting.



2. Interface improvements for right to left languages:



a) proper text alignment in simple WinRAR prompts, such as

confirmations to delete archived files or to clear the log file;



b) "OK", "Cancel", "Help" buttons in multi-page dialogs,

such as archiving and extraction options or WinRAR settings,

are aligned correctly and translated to default Windows

display language.



3. Bugs fixed:



a) WinRAR SFX module could load DLL libraries from its own executable

folder as a result of calling some Windows API functions.

It could lead to security threat if DLL files with malicious code

were stored in the same folder as SFX archive. Now SFX module

takes additional steps to prevent such situation in Windows Vista

and newer.



Be aware that users without latest Windows security patches

installed also as Windows XP users still can be affected,

so they must be especially careful to run SFX archive from

a folder without suspicious DLL files;



b) WinRAR 5.30 failed to run .lnk files from file list.
Néhány beta teszt után megjelent a WinRAR 5.30-as verziója, amit azonnal magyarul is el lehet érni.



Az újdonságok előtt a gyártó egy fontos nyilatkozatot tett (ismét) közzé:

2015 szeptemberében széles körben tejedt a hír a WinRAR önkicsomagoló moduljának sebezhetőségéről. A hír nem igaz, nem a WinRAR, hanem a Windows OLE biztonsági réséről volt szó, de azt már jóval korábban, 2014 novemberében javította a Microsoft.

Nézzük az újdonságokat:

http://www.rarlab.com/rarnew.htm
Megjelent a vadonatúj, 5.20-as verzió magyarul is, nézzük, mi az újdonság?



Version 5.20



1. If Windows User Account Control prevents extracting or archiving

commands to create files in system protected folders, WinRAR attempts

to start its another copy with administrator privileges to complete

the operation. It is necessary to confirm privileges elevation

in response to User Account Control prompt to allow such second

WinRAR copy to run.



2. You can drag files in Explorer with right mouse button, drop them

to some folder and select WinRAR archiving commands in context menu

to create an archive with these files in the destination folder.



3. It is possible to use WinRAR.ini file instead of Registry to store

WinRAR settings. You may prefer such approach if you plan to install

WinRAR to removable media, such as USB flash drive, and then run it

on different computers.



See "WinRAR.ini file" topic in "Configuration settings" chapter

of WinRAR help for details.



4. Added extraction support for ZIP and ZIPX archives using

XZ compression algorithm.



5. If ZIP or ZIPX archive contains any compression algorithms except

usual "Store" or "Deflate", algorithm names are displayed

in "Version to extract" field of archive information dialog.

Algorithms with names unknown to WinRAR will be assigned "m"

name, where "num" is a compression algorithm numeric identifier.



6. "Open with WinRAR" command is available in Windows context menus

for archive formats supported by WinRAR. It can be turned off

with "Open with WinRAR (for usual archives)" option in WinRAR

"Settings/Integration/Context menu items..." dialog.



7. Command line RAR can read the default set of switches from rar.ini

file stored in RAR program folder. Previously it was possible to

define only the same set of switches for all RAR command with

"switches=" string. Now rar.ini also allows to specify

separate switch sets for individual RAR commands using

the following syntax:



switches_=



For example:



switches_a=-m5 -s

switches_x=-o+



8. Command "ch" supports switches -tl, -cu, -cl also for ZIP archives.

Previously "ch" allowed these switches only for RAR archive format.



9. For archive formats lacking file time information, such as .bz2,

.xz and .Z, WinRAR sets container archive modification time

to extracted files. It does not apply to tar.bz2, tar.xz and tar.Z,

which use file time stored in tar headers.



10. "Keep broken files" extraction option is supported for bzip2 archives.



11. WinRAR icon in Windows context menus is scaled up correctly

in high DPI screen modes such as 150% or 200% of normal text size.



12. It is possible to disable WinRAR "Benchmark" command with

"Benchmark" variable of HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareWinRARPolicy

Registry key. In multi-user environment "Benchmark" command might

abuse shared computational resources. See "Registry variables" topic

in "Configuration settings" chapter of WinRAR help for more details.



13. Additionally to "sfxcmd" variable containing the entire command line,

SFX module sets "sfxpar" variable containing command line parameters

only, without leading SFX module name. These variables are set before

starting a program specified in "Setup" command.



14. File overwrite prompt in console RAR displays the size and modification

time for existing and new files.



15. When archiving from stdin with -si switch, RAR sets the current system

time to modification time of archived file. Previous version did not

set this time at all.



16. It is possible to use -si and -v switches together. Previous

versions did not allow to create volumes when archiving from stdin.



17. Warning is issued when starting unpacking 4 GB or larger file

from RAR or ZIP archive to FAT32 patition, so user may cancel

the operation. FAT32 does not support files of such size.



Also this warning is issued when starting to create RAR archive

with "Store" (-m0) method if estimated archive size is 4 GB or more.



18. "Select all" button in "Settings/Integration" dialog is renamed to

"Toggle all". Now it deselects archive formats if all they are

already selected.



19. "Delete archive" extraction option correctly removes all .zip and .7z

volumes. Previously it removed only the first volume in the set

for these archive formats.
A fejlesztés folyamatos, nézzük, mi történt az 5.11 verzió óta?

Ne feledjétek, ezek teszt verziók, biztonságos, üzleti felhasználásra nem javaslom.

Rövid beta teszt után a mai napon megjelent a WinRAR 5.11 verzió, és annak magyar változata is.

A magyar felületen néhány hiba javításra került, köszönjük Koncz László észrevételét!



Lássuk, mi újdonságot hozott ez a kis hibajavító verzió:



1. WinRAR can unpack TAR archives containing folders with pax extended headers. Previous versions failed to unpack them.



2. "Keep broken files" extraction option is supported for 7-Zip archives.



3. Bugs fixed:
a) WinRAR 5.10 did not set "hidden", "read-only" and "system" file attributes when unpacking ZIP archives;
b) WinRAR 5.10 failed to update self-extracting RAR archives containing nested ZIP archives stored without compression;
c) ZIP archive created with "Do not store paths" option included unnecessary empty name records for folders;
d) archived files could have 1 hour modification time error in Windows XP; e) deleting a file in RAR5 solid archive containing files stored with -ver switch caused such files to lose version information; f) black rectangles were displayed instead of toolbar buttons in 16- and 24- bit screen color modes and Windows custom text size larger than 100.
Négy béta tesztverzió után péntek 13.-án megjelent az 5.10-es verzió.

Volt, aki feszült hangvételű levélben reklamálta a magyar verziót, innen üzenjük neki,

péntek 13-án nem publikálunk ;)



De lássuk, mi újdonságot hozott ez a verzió:

1., Továbbfejlesztett kitömörítési szolgáltatás

Rengeteg felhasználó kérésének eleget téve beépítették a ZIP, ZIPX, BZIP2, LZMA és PPMd minden verizójának támogatását.

További fejlesztésként a több fájlból álló 7z archívumok támogatását is megvalósították.
Négy béta tesztverzió után péntek 13.-án megjelent az 5.10-es verzió.

Volt, aki feszült hangvételű levélben azonnal reklamálta a magyar verziót, innen üzenjük neki, péntek 13-án nem publikálunk, mint azt már húsz éve így tesszük ;)

De lássuk, mi újdonságot hozott ez a verzió:



1., Továbbfejlesztett kitömörítési szolgáltatás

Rengeteg felhasználó kérésének eleget téve beépítették a ZIP, ZIPX, BZIP2, LZMA és PPMd minden verziójának támogatását. További fejlesztésként a több fájlból álló 7z archívumok támogatását is megvalósították.



2., Teljesítmény

A WinRAR 5.10 már felhasználja az AES-NI processzor utasításokat, ezek használatával a szoftver be- és kitömörítési teljesítménye jelentősen javult.



3., Felhasználó felület

Az elmúlt évtizedben a WinRAR törekedett a megszokott felhasználói felület megtartására.
Az 5.10-es verzióval feljavított minőségű ikonokat, grafikai megjelenést adtak.

A szerző azt gondolja, a külső megjelenésnél fontosabb a program tudása, az a tény, hogy RAR tömörítési eljárás ipari szabvánnyá vált, mondta Burak Canboy, a cég tulajdonosa.

Elmondása szerint a felhasználói visszajelzések is ezt igazolták.
A fejlesztés folytatódik, a Beta 2-t gyorsan követte a harmadik kiadás.

Most ez történt:

1. More efficient implementation of "Keep broken files" extraction option
(-kb switch in command line mode). Now it allows to recover more data from file split
between RAR volumes if next volume is missing.

2. Bugs fixed:

a) "Create recovery volumes" command on "Options" page of archive information dialog was inaccessible if "Merge volume contents" option was enabled in WinRAR settings;

b) if wrong password was entered for RAR archive with encrypted file names, previous beta applied such wrong password automatically, when opening the same archive again.
A fejlesztés folyamatos, nézzük, mi történt az 5.01 verzió óta?

Ne feledjétek, ezek teszt verziók, biztonságos, üzleti felhasználásra nem javaslom.



Version 5.10 beta 2

1. Bugs fixed:

a) when processing nested archives, WinRAR could attempt to open
inner archive as self-extracting instead of opening an outer
archive. It happened if inner archive was stored without
compression and outer archive name had non-standard extension;

b) Unix RAR could not decompress hard links stored by WinRAR
if link source name included path separator characters.


Version 5.10 beta 1

1. Added extraction support for ZIP and ZIPX archives using
BZIP2, LZMA and PPMd compression.

2. Added extraction support for 7z split archives
(.7z.001, .7z.002, ...).

3. Added support for AES-NI CPU instructions allowing to improve
RAR encryption and decryption performance.

4. Default theme images are scaled up with better quality
in high DPI display mode.

5. Environment variables, such as %temp%, can be used
in "Files to add" field of archiving dialog.

6. Switch -ai can be used when creating RAR archive,
so predefined values, typical for file and folder,
are stored instead of actual attributes.
Previously this switch could be used only when extracting.
A mai natól letölthető a végleseg 5.01 magyar verzió is.

Az 5.01 Beta véglegesített változata.
Megjelent a WinRAR 5.01 BETA1 magyarul is.



Most is felhívom a figyelmet, hogy beta, teszt verziót ne használjanak éles környezetben,

működéséért senki sem vállal felelősséget.



Nézzük, mi történt egy század verzió alatt?





1. RAR 5.0 archives can include an optional quick open information
controlled with -qo[-|+] switch or "Quick open information" options
group in archiving dialog. It allows to open the archive contents
in WinRAR faster.

This version provides better update performance for archives
containing both quick open information and service records,
such as NTFS file security. Also default parameters of quick open
information are optimized to achieve faster open time for such archives.

2. Bugs fixed:

a) "Find" command could fail when searching text string in .7z archives;

b) when opening RAR 5.0 archive with encrypted file names stored
in another such archive, WinRAR could issue an erroneous message
that password is incorrect. It happened only if passwords to inner
and outer archives were different. It did not affect extraction,
all files could be unpacked regardless of this message;

c) option "Use for all archives" in password dialog did not suppress
additional password requests for RAR 5.0 archives with encrypted
file names;

d) WinRAR address bar did not process correctly environment variable
based paths, such as %temp%;

e) storing NTFS file security and alternate data streams did not work
for file pathnames longer than 260 characters;

f) "Test" command could erroneously report damaged data in valid
recovery record if only a part of files in RAR 5.0 archive
was tested. It did not happen if entire archive contents was tested;

g) "Test" command erroneously reported errors when verifying
RAR 4.x Unix symbolic links;

h) WinRAR "View" command did not work for files inside of BZIP2 archives;

i) if "High precision modification time" option in archiving dialog
was turned off, WinRAR did not store the modification time at all
instead of storing a lower precision time;

j) destination paths containing .\ or ..\ component did not work
when extracting non-RAR archives in WinRAR command line mode;

k) WinRAR failed to unpack multivolume CAB archives.


Végre itt van.

Sokunk örömére végre megjelent a végleges verzió az 5.0-ás WinRAR-ból!



Az újdonságok a 4.20-hoz képest:



5.0. The world’s leading compression software is
now even more advanced and has implemented a variety of innovations further
boosting the performance of WinRAR. The new RAR5 archive format includes many
improvements of existing features of WinRAR and creates RAR5 files with a higher
compression ratio and significant speed gain relative to the competition.
RAR5


We have a new archive format. When using WinRAR 5.0, you'll not only have the
existing RAR and ZIP compression options but also the new RAR5 archive format.
An assortment of advanced algorithms has been implemented in addition to further
optimization for use with modern software and hardware configurations. Quite simply,
there is no better option for file compression than RAR5.
Security


“It's never been more important to feel confident your sensitive data is safe from
unwanted access and tampering,” says Öncül Kaya, managing director of win.rar GmbH.
WinRAR has always set the standard for quick and easy encryption and that's not
going to seize anytime soon. With WinRAR 5.0, the RAR algorithm has been
upgraded to include 256-bit AES encryption - further ensuring that your data is fully
protected. With RAR encryption, you can sleep well knowing your data is safe and
sound.


Compression
RAR archives have always provided a higher compression ratio than the competition.
WinRAR 5.0 can now create larger dictionaries of up to 1 GB in the 64-bit version of
WinRAR which leads to an even higher compression ratio than in previous versions.


Speed
Decompression speed has also been increased due to the introduction of a number
of advanced algorithms optimizing the process. The increased of speed derives
primarily from the use of multithreaded decompression on multi-core systems.
Further Additions to WinRAR 5.0
Based on the demand of many users the limitation of maximum archived file path
length in RAR archive is changed from 260 to 2048 characters.
Another major improvement is the new recovery record function which is based upon
the Reed-Solomon error correction codes making archive recovery stronger and
more efficient. In test scenarios with a 1 GB archive, WinRAR was able to fix 9 times
more damages relative to the previous version.
The file identification within RAR archives has been additionally enhanced by using
BLAKE2sp hash as a file checksum. With BLAKE2 inclusion, one may definitively
detect whether files are different or the same. While using CRC32, two different files
may share the same value. This is not the case with BLAKE2.
Továbbra is kérek mindenkit, hogy kizárólag teszt célokra használja ezt a verziót, mivel a kifogástalan működése nem szavatolt.

Mindennemű visszajelzést köszönettel veszünk.
Ezúttal is kisebb hibajavításokat eszközöltek:

1. If archiving operation cannot allocate memory required for compression
dictionary, it automatically reduces the dictionary size.

2. Decompression algorithm can store the dictionary in several memory
blocks. It helps to unpack an archive on systems with high level
of memory heap fragmentation, when no single memory block
is large enough to fit the entire compression dictionary.


Rövid egymásutánban megjelent beta verziókból ez már tesztelhető állapotú verzió.

Senki se használja éles környezetben, mivel még nem kiforrott verzióról van szó!

Amennyiben ez a kiadás stabilnak minősül, hamarosan elkészítem a magyar változatot is.



Ami eddig történt:



BETA3:



Fixed XZ archive support, which did not work in beta 2.
"Convert" command did not allow to use compression dictionaries exceeding 4 MB.
If both encryption password and archive comment were specified when creating RAR archive, archive comment was not added.
"View as Unicode (UTF-8)" command in internal viewer did not work, so UTF-8 files were displayed correctly only if their encoding was detected by viewer automatically.
Maximum compression dictionary size when running in Windows XP x86 is reduced to 128 MB. WinRAR cannot allocate enough memory to create archives with 256 MB dictionary in Windows XP x86.
Corrections in relative path processing, such as "..\arcname.rar" name in archiving dialog or "WinRAR foldername" in the command line.





BETA2:



Bugfixes

When adding an incompressible file to non-solid RAR archive, beta 1 could duplicate the first megabyte of archived file, resulting in damaged file.

"Add to archive..." context menu command could place a created archive to a wrong folder.





BETA 1:



The world’s leading compression software has incorporated a number of innovations for the RAR-format. The new RAR5 format provides many improvements of existing features of WinRAR and creates RAR5 files with higher compression ratio and speed gain on multi-core systems for decompression.Better compression and increase of speed

Due to changes in the RAR format, WinRAR 5.0 Beta 1 can create larger dictionaries up to 1 GB in 64 bit version of WinRAR which leads to higher compression in solid archive mode on large similar files.

The increased of speed derives from the use of multithreaded decompression on multi-core systems for lower redundancy data.

More secure

So far, users of the RAR format have benefited from the integration of 128-bit AES encryption. Based upon popular demand we have upgraded the RAR algorithm to include 256-bit AES encryption to ensure sensitive data is safe from undesired access.

Further innovations of the Beta version of WinRAR 5.0

Based on the demand of many users the limitation of maximum archived file path length in RAR archive is changed from 260 to 2048.

Another major improvement is the new recovery record function which is based upon the Reed-Solomon error correction codes making archive recovery stronger. In test scenarios with a 1 GB archive, 10% recovery record and average damage size of 32 KB, WinRAR was able to fix 9x more damages relative to the previous version. Also, the new recovery record is much more efficient than the old to fix insertions, deletions, not only when data has been modified but when data positions are shifted.

The file identification within RAR archive has been enhanced by using BLAKE2sp hash as a file checksum. With BLAKE2 inclusion, one can definitively detect whether files are different or the same while using CRC32, two different files may share the same value. Furthermore, CRC32 is shorter and therefore there is a small chance it will not detect a corrupt file and some classes of errors unlike BLAKE2.
Highlights of the 4.20 final version release:

Changes in RAR compression:

a) RAR general compression algorithm is optimized for better utilization of several processor cores. While some speed gain is possible even in single processor mode, best results are achieved in multi-core environment.
Speed gain depends on data type and average file size. Several cores are utilized more efficiently when compressing large files.

b) "Fastest" (-m1) compression mode also supports several processor cores now. In 4.11 it could use only single processor core.

c) RAR general decompression algorithm speed is slightly improved, though not to same extent as RAR compression. RAR decompression is not able to use several processor cores, so its performance does not depend on a number of cores.

Changes in ZIP compression:

a) now ZIP compression supports several processor cores resulting in noticeably higher performance in multi-core environment. Single CPU ZIP compression is also faster than in 4.11;
Megjelent a WinRAR 4.11, ami apró hibajavításokat tartalmaz.

A magyar verzió is elérhető, egyelőre még csak a hazai oldaról, de néhány óra, és a rarlab.com-on is fent lesz.



Version 4.11

1. Bugs fixed:

a) WinRAR did not store NTFS "Compressed" attribute, when creating
RAR archives;

b) WinRAR crashed in command line mode if @filelist parameter
was present and 'filelist' did not exist. This bug affected
only WinRAR.exe, not RAR.exe;

c) if -x*\somefolder\* exclusion mask was specified when archiving
and if name of current folder contained 'somefolder',
WinRAR excluded all files and stopped creating an archive;

d) GUI self-extracting archives did not work in Windows
Preinstallation Environment (Windows PE).

Örömmel tudatjuk, hogy megjelent a 4.10-es verzió.

A holnapi naptól a magyar verzió is elérhető lesz.



Újdonságok:

Version 4.10

1. WinRAR can create ZIP archives of practically any size.

2 GB archive size and 65535 file number ZIP limitations of previous
WinRAR versions are not valid anymore.

2. WinRAR can create multivolume ZIP archives, which are also known as
split ZIP files.

ZIP volumes have names like 'volname.zip', 'volname.z01', 'volname.z02'.
Use a volume with ".zip" file extension in all archive processing
operations like starting extraction or opening an archive.

Unlike RAR volumes, ZIP volumes cannot be self-extracting.

WinRAR needs to have access to all ZIP volumes of multivolume file set
at the same time, when creating or unpacking them. So it is impossible
to create or unpack ZIP volumes on removable disks, one volume
per disk. You need to create them all in the same folder.

3. Added the high precision file time support in ZIP archives.
WinRAR can store and extract modification, creation and last access
file time in ZIP archives with 100 nanosecond precision.

You need to set "High precision modification time" option in "Time"
part of archiving dialog to store all 3 times in archive.
Set appropriate "File time" options in "Advanced" part of extraction
dialog to choose times to extract.

4. Added support for Unicode names stored in ZIP extra field data.
Different ZIP tools store Unicode names either in file header
or in ZIP extra field and now WinRAR can correctly process both types
of Unicode names.

5. "Synchronize archive contents" option and -as command line switch are
supported in ZIP format.

6. Modifications of switch -ag behavior:

a) -ag can be used with all RAR and WinRAR commands, not just
with archiving only;

b) 'N' format character behavior differs in archiving and non-archiving
operations. When archiving, it is incremented until the first unused
name is found. In non-archiving operations like extracting it selects
the existing archive preceding the first unused name;

c) 'I' format character allows to specify minutes regardless of presence
and position of 'H' (hours) in format string. It can be used
instead of 'M' (minutes), when you wish to place minutes before hours
or do not need hours at all.

7. By default, WinRAR proposes to update an archive if viewer modified
an opened file or created any new files. New "Ignore modifications for"
option in "Settings/Viewer" dialog allows to disable such behavior.
You can enter one or several file masks separated by spaces here
and WinRAR will not prompt to update an archive if file created
or modified by viewer matches one of these masks.

8. Changes in volume size input field. Now you can select size units
in the drop down list to the right of volume size. Previous way
to define size modifiers, by entering 'k', 'm', etc. character
after the numeric size value, is also supported.

9. Changes in "Predefined sizes" in "Define volume sizes" dialog.
Floppies and ZIP disks are replaced by 5 MB and 100 MB volumes,
added new entries for maximum FAT32 file size and for Blu-ray disks.

10. New "Wipe files if password is set" option in "Options" page of
archiving dialog. If you prefer to always delete encrypted files
securely, you can enable "Wipe files if password is set"
in the default compression profile.

11. New "Wipe temporary files/Encrypted only" option in "Settings/Security".
It allows to use a slower and more secure delete for temporary files
extracted from archives identified by WinRAR as encrypted.
Quick delete is used for all other temporary files.

12. Changes in "Convert archives" command:

a) now it is possible to convert encrypted archives. Previously
"Convert archives" command skipped them.

Though, if you still prefer to skip them, you can do it
by enabling "Skip encrypted archives" option in "Convert archives"
dialog. It might be useful if you wish to run the conversion
command in unattended mode, avoiding password prompts;

b) special "rar2" archive type, which was specific for RAR 1.x
and 2.x archives, is removed. Now "rar" archive type controls
conversion of all versions of RAR archives.

Since the convert command does not need to detect RAR archive
version anymore, the initial search for archives is performed
faster, resulting in shorter delay before displaying
"Convert archives" dialog.

13. New -log[fmt][=name] switch allows to write archive and file names
to log file in archiving command for RAR and ZIP formats and also
in extracting, deleting and listing commands for RAR format.

This switch is especially useful, when you need to further process
an archive created with -ag or -v switches, because -log provides
the archive name generated by WinRAR.

14. New -@[+] switch allows to process all parameters starting from
'@' character either as file names (-@) or as file lists (-@+).

15. "Setup program" SFX options are moved from "General" to "Setup" page
of "Advanced SFX options" dialog. Both "Run after extraction"
and "Run before extraction" are now multiline, so it is possible
to specify several setup programs for same SFX archive.

16. "SetupCode" SFX script command instructs SFX archive to wait
for termination of setup program and return the exit code of
setup program increased by 1000 as the exit code of SFX executable.

GUI equivalent of this command is "Wait and return exit code" option
on "Setup" page of "Advanced SFX options" dialog.

17. SFX does not support "S" (create in the top level of Start Menu)
"Shortcut" command mode anymore. Recent Windows versions do not allow
programs to add items to the top of Start Menu.

18. Volume size in archiving and wizard dialogs can be specified as
a decimal fraction. Decimal mark is defined by Windows regional
settings.

-v command line switch also allows decimal fractions.
In command line mode the dot (.) is always used as the decimal mark.
For example, -v1.5g switch means 1.5 gigabytes.

Megjelent a WinRAR 4.01 hivatalos verizó, mely kisebb hibajavításokat tartalmaz.

A legfrisebb verzió letöltése javasolt.





Változások a 4.0 verzióhoz képest:



1. Added support for file sizes stored in binary format in TAR archives.
Some TAR archives use the binary size format instead of octal
for files larger than 8 GB.

2. Bugs fixed:

a) "Repair" command failed to properly reconstruct structure
of RAR archives, which contained at least one file with packed
size exceeding 4 GB.

This bug did not affect the recovery record based repair.
It happened only if recovery record was not found and WinRAR
performed reconstruction of archive structure;

b) even if "Do not extract paths" option in "Advanced" part of
extraction dialog was set as the default, WinRAR still unpacked
file paths if called from Explorer context menu;

c) after entering a wrong password for encrypted ZIP archive,
sometimes WinRAR ignored subsequent attempts to enter a valid
password;

d) "Wizard" command did not allow to create self-extracting
and multivolume archives, when compressing a single folder
or a file without extension;

e) "Import settings from file" command did not restore multiline
comments in WinRAR compression profiles;

f) when converting RAR volumes having name1.name2.part#.rar name format,
"Convert archives" command erroneously removed ".name2" name part.
So resulting archive had name1.rar file name instead of expected
name1.name2.rar;

g) RAR could crash when creating a new archive with -agNNN switch
if archive number in generated name was 110 or larger;

h) WinRAR failed to display non-English file names in 7-Zip archives
properly if they used a non-default code page. It was the display
only problem, such names were unpacked correctly.

Természetesen ezzel párhuzamosan a magyar verzió is elérhető 32 és 64 bites verzióban is.



Újdonságok a 4.0 verzióban:



30% faster decompression

Thanks to RAR's improved and highly accelerated decompression algorithm, users can now extract their files up to 30% faster than with previous WinRAR versions. RAR users who normally work with large video or digital picture files will have something to look forward to since the increase in extraction speed is most noticeable with multimedia file extraction.



Save frequently used passwords with the new password manager

Password protection of archives is one of the most important and most popular security functions of WinRAR. A frequently requested feature - a password manager - has been added to the new WinRAR 4. For the first time ever users can define and save their frequently used passwords with the new password organizer function. This way, the passwords can now be applied and retrieved easily and comfortably for file extracting purposes at any time. In addition, users can now extract several different files at the same time as long as they are encrypted with the same password. If no password is entered, WinRAR will automatically skip all encoded archives during the compression process.



Improved Unicode Support

Another highlight of the new WinRAR version is the numerous improvements in Unicode support. For example, WinRAR 4.0 now supports non-English file names. Noticeable improvement can also be seen in WinRAR functions like "Rename", "Convert", "Find" and other commands, in the folder tree panel, in the password request dialog and in many other parts of the WinRAR interface. Thereby the data-transfer with business partners in other continents, that use the Cyrillic or Chinese alphabet has been facilitated. Moreover, reports can now be delivered in HTML or Unicode text files.



Further important innovations in WinRAR 4.0

WinRAR offers better Blu-ray Support: UDF support has been upgraded to UDF 2.50 revision, now making it possible to unpack most Blue-ray ISO files.

WinRAR now offers the users the option to display passwords, if needed. Via the analogous password dialogue in the packing and unpacking process, passwords now can be visible during both processes.



The SFX archive now has an optimized operation status and error messages display. Compared to the previous version, this change reduces the memory usage and improves the extraction process speed

“With WinRAR, we provide our users with an improved archive program of great popularity. On this latest version, we have focussed on optimizing the sophisticated functions and on simplifying the usage of our product. Of course, we have also expanded the features of our program. As with each release, we carried out bug fixes to ensure that our program remains compatible, up-to-date and stable.” says win.rar GmbH´s CEO, Öncül Kaya.

WinRAR distinguishes itself through its high compression rate and offers all the advantages of the RAR formats, such as: solid archive system and split archives, recovery records, self-extracting archives, converting functionalities and plenty of security options. At the same time, the program runs smoothly, while using minimal disk space. Apart from the RAR format, WinRAR also supports a long list of non-RAR formats, as well as the ZIP format, and therefore offers the best compatibility in its class.

A tip for all Windows-64-bit-users, it is highly recommended to install the WinRAR 64-bit version. It is faster, and offers the best available integration. WinRAR´s compression speed under Windows Vista and Windows 7 or any other multi-core-system has been increased considerably.

The demo version runs for 40 days without any nag screens. On expiration of the 40 days, users will be prompted to purchase a license.

WinRAR is available in more than 40 different languages and is compatible with Windows 2000/2003/XP/Vista/2008/Windows7. The command line version of WinRAR is also available for Linux, FreeBSD and MAC OS X.
