PeaZip release notes

  • PeaZip 7.5 brings new icons to better distinguish main archive types, and several improvements in archive management.
  • It is now possible to extract everything in the archive (or in current path, or search filter) in order to correctly preview special file types (ie executables, html files, multi volume spanned archives).
  • Test mode was improved, it is now possible to create new folders in existing archives, and it is available a new option to automatically close PeaZip after extraction if no browsing took place – useful in example if the user wants to preview a downloaded file before extraction , but wants the application to auto close right after.
  • Default compression levels were set to fast for ZIP and 7Z formats, which runs over 4x faster than at normal compression level with minor impact on compression ratio, in order to offer a better speed/compression tradeoff for general purpose use – compression levels and compression presets works as usual, only the initial default is changed.
  • A total of 210 file extensions can now be managed by PeaZip.
  • 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.
