Version 7.0.0 of PeaZip has been released. This archive utility is available under an open source license, and downloads are available for Windows and Linux. The program aims to distinguish itself from the competition by specializing in safety. Encryption of data is therefore one of the main functions of the proprietary pea format. PeaZip 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. The following enhancements have been made in this release:
