Software update: PeaZip 3.1

The final release of PeaZip version 3.1 was released on Thursday. This archiving program is available under an open source license and tries to differentiate itself from the competition by specializing in security. Encrypting data is therefore the spearhead of our own pea format. The program can create 7z, bz2, gz, paq/lpaq, pea, quad, tar, upx and zip files and extract various file formats including ace, arj, cab, deb, iso, lha , rar and rpm.
