PeaZip is a free ZIP files utility and free RAR file extractor, a fast and elegant all-purpose file manager and archive manager tool for Windows, Linux, and BSD. The program freatures a powerful unified GUI that, unlike most of other classic file archivers like i.e. WinZip and WinRar, is natively portable and cross-platform. PeaZip is based on solid and proven Open Source technology of 7-Zip for handling mainstream archive formats, and other great Open Source tools (FreeARC, PAQ, UPX) for supporting additional file formats and features, for a total of over 150 file formats supported.
What's new in this version:
- PeaZip can now extract RAR5 files on Linux without resorting on separate UNRAR5 Plugin (still available as optional alternative extraction engine). - Improved UTF-8 support in Windows. - Improved application startup and configuration process to make it more robust in case of random / system errors. - Improved secure delete, free space delete, and hashing / analysis functions. - File hashing / analysis tools added in Test dropdown group in application tool bar. - Automatically removes redundant intermediate directory when extracting to new folder.
