PeaZip 3.6.1 improves file navigation, the browser can now rename (Ctrl+R) multiple files at once, sort function keeps context of previously sorted columns and middle mouse button can be used to navigate up one level.
PeaZip can extract most of archive formats both from Windows and Unix worlds.
PeaZip has secure deletion feature, can verify file checksum and hash, and supports multiple strong encryption standards, optionally using two factor authentication (password and keyfile) for increased security:
- 7Z’s AES256 encryption
- ZIP WinZip’s AE encryption based on AES256 (and ZipCrypto for legacy compatibility); can decrypt PKZip’s AES encryption
- FreeARC’s ARC: AES256, Blowfish, Twofish256 and Serpent256 – this format is also capable to generate recovery records to protect data against corruption
- PEA: AES256 EAX authenticated encryption
For all formats handled through 7z backend the working dir is explicitly set to the output path, for better security and performances.
In Options > Settings, Open archive tab it is now possible to fine tune for drag and drop operations the “extract without paths” directive (equal to command line “e” extraction), for extracting files from archives without recreating parent tree structure – the directive does not apply if extraction involves directories, in this case the parent tree is always respected.
“Open output path when job completes” moved from options to extraction and compression interfaces for better accessibility; it is also featured in quick extraction options menu in file/archive browser.
Pea backend was updated to 0.34 version.
A total of 129 file extensions are supported, and language files were updated with latest available translations.
