Spread the love

RAR Labs has released the first beta release of version 7.01 of its archivers RAR and WinRAR. This popular compression tool is available for various operating systems, including Windows, Linux, and macOS. The program handles the most common formats – including rar, zip, cab, arj, lzh, tar, gz, uue, bz2, jar, iso, 7z and z – has a skinnable interface, and support for Zip64 and multivolume cab -files. The following improvements have been made in this release:

Bugs fixed:

  • updating an encrypted file in a solid RAR archive produced a corrupt archive if updated file was the first in archive, no password was specified when starting updating and file name encryption in the updated archive wasn't enabled;
  • WinRAR 7.00 crashed after switching to “Flat folders view” mode from archive subfolder;
  • switch -ep4 duplicated the specified path instead of excluding it when extracting;
  • if archive created by Unix RAR version contained symlinks with path separator characters in target paths, these characters could be broken when modifying such archive with Windows RAR;
  • invalid file name was displayed in file rename and file execute WinRAR error messages;
  • SFX “Shortcut” command failed to recognize empty parameters defined like “Shortcut=D,””,folder”, while correctly recognizing such parameters without quote marks like “Shortcut=D,,folder”;
  • volume reconstruction didn't work in WinRAR.exe if “rc” command was specified with .rev file, such as “WinRAR rc arc.part1.rev”. Unlike RAR, WinRAR required to use only .rar file name here.
