This week it was released PeaZip 1.11 http://peazip.sourceforge.net/
The release is focused in introducing support (create, browse, extract, test, repair) for ARC/WRC archive format supported through FreeArc.
FreeArc is a new promising GPL project for a compressor which supports recovery records and strong encryption (AES, Serpent, Twofish, Blowfish); the compression ratio is comparable or better to 7z and RAR, and the speed is better at comparable compression ratios.
To know more about Free Arc: http://freearc.sourceforge.net/
Release 1.11 also completes the set of tools integrated in the application with a checksum/hash tool that can check multiple files with multiple (user selectable) algorithms at once, supporting:
Adler32, CRC16/24/32/64, eDonkey/eMule, MD4/MD5, Ripemd160, SHA1/224/256/384/512, and Whirlpool512.
I hope you can enjoy this new release of PeaZip!
