    WinRAR 3.80 beta 1 released

    Version 3.80 beta 1

    1. Added support for ZIP archives containing Unicode file names
    in UTF-8 format. When creating ZIP archive, WinRAR stores
    names in Unicode only if they cannot be stored correctly using
    the current single byte character set.

    2. Added decompression support for WinZip AES encrypted ZIP archives.

    3. Improved Unicode support for RAR and ZIP archive names.

    4. "Ask before overwrite" and "Skip existing files" update modes
    are now available in archiving dialog. They allow to specify
    WinRAR behavior when updating already existing files in archive.
    Unlike already available "Fresh existing files only" and
    "Add and update files", these new modes ignore file date
    and compare only file names.

    Command line equivalents of these modes are:

    a) switch -o enables "Ask before overwrite" archiving mode;

    b) switch -o- enables "Skip existing files" archiving mode;

    c) switch -o+ enables "Overwrite all" mode (default for archiving).

    5. New "Add to context menu" option in "Profile parameters" dialog.
    If this option is on, the profile name will be displayed in Explorer
    context menus allowing to activate a profile from context menu.

    6. New -cp<profile name> switch allows to select a compression profile
    in command line mode. It is supported only by GUI WinRAR.exe,
    not by rar.exe.

    7. New "Options" page of archiving dialog contains the group of
    settings modifying the behavior of "Delete files after archiving"
    option from "General" page:

    a) Delete files. Delete files normally like in previous WinRAR

    b) Move files to Recycle Bin. Deleted files are placed to
    Recycle Bin.

    Command line equivalent of this option is -dr switch.

    c) Wipe files. Before deleting file data are overwritten by
    zero bytes to prevent recovery of deleted files.

    Command line equivalent of this option is -dw switch.

    All these options have an effect only if "Delete files
    after archiving" is on. You can enable any of these options
    in the default compression profile to change the default
    behavior of "Delete files after archiving".

    8. WinRAR "Extraction path and options" dialog is now resizable.
    You can use the mouse to drag its border to the desired size
    and provide more space for folder tree pane. WinRAR will store
    new dimensions of this dialog.

    9. New "Update" SFX script command and "Update mode" group
    of options in "Update" page of "Advanced SFX options" dialog.
    These command and options allow to check time and implement
    file time based updating;

    10. SFX script "Shortcut" command and "Add shortcut..." command
    in "Advanced SFX options" dialog now allow to specify
    an icon file containing an icon associated with shortcut.

    11. New "Wipe temporary files" option in "Settings/Security" dialog
    provides more secure, though slower, way to delete temporary
    WinRAR files.

    12. WinRAR and RAR display the total progress bar when unpacking
    a multivolume RAR archive if all volumes are present
    in the same folder.

    13. WinRAR and RAR automatically expand names of environment
    variables in list files. For example, a list file can contain
    lines like:


    This feature is available only in Windows RAR version.

    14. Added support of TAR archives with non-zero "extra field" data.

    15. Added support of TAR archives, which does not contain
    the end of archive entry consisting of 512 zero bytes.

    16. Improved Unicode support when dragging files from WinRAR window.

    17. Shift+Tab key combination can be used in main WinRAR window to
    switch the input focus between interface elements (files, comment,
    tree, address) in reverse order. In previous versions Shift+Tab
    used the same order as Tab.

    18. Corrected a possible WinRAR crash when opening truncated
    UDF ISO files.

    in Windows x64;

    b) beta 1 could display only a part of files in tar.gz archives;

    c) beta 1 could fail to set timestamps for files extracted
    from ZIP archives;

    d) beta 1 could issue a rename error message and abort
    when creating RAR volumes with Unicode characters in archive name.
