RELEASE NOTES

PEAZIP 6.X

PREVIOUS VERSIONS



Release 6.0.3 updates pea backend to 0.55 version, and 7z backend to 16.02 version (on Windows)
6.0 line comes with PEA file format specifications updated to 1.1 version, introducing support for SHA3 hash (256 and 512 bit), and Twofish and Serpent EAX mode (128 and 256 bit) authenticated encryption. SHA3 is now also available as hash function in file browser.
The application is now full Unicode compliant, extraction (and test) procedure accepts directories as input, with single archives being listed before operation starts so selection can be verified and fine-tuned if needed, and many other improvements were introduced to improve the ease of use.

A total of 188 file extensions can now be managed by PeaZip.

Translations are available in over 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.
