PeaZip is a free, open source file and archive manager. PeaZip allows to save archive's layouts; apply powerful multiple search filters to archive's content; handle multiple archives at once; export job definition as command line; bookmark archives and folders etc... Other features: AES256 encryption, robust file copy, split/join files (file span), secure file deletion, compare, checksum and hash files, system benchmark, generate random passwords and keyfiles.

  • Archiving:
    • Added support for UDF, XAR, and DMG/HFS file types, improved support for OpenOffice file types - total 79 file extensions supported
    • Content and filenames encryption status is now fully inherited by new objects when adding files/folders to 7z archives
    • Custom file types can now be opened directly from "extract" menu entries
    • Fixed issues showing with ACE 1.x archives under Linux
    • Improved input file recognition for UPX compression (11 extensions)
    • Updated 7z frontend to 4.60 (Windows)
    • Updated Pea frontend to 0.21
    • Updated W.E. crypto library with package aes_2008-08-04
  • Usage:
    • Added third area to status bar showing current filesystem, or archive type plus encryption status
    • "Extract to new folder" flag is no longer limited to current session
    • Open executables/files/folders (in Windows) are now lauched in a separate processes rather than through shellexecute method (unless necessary) in order to increase parallelism and avoid possible stalls while waiting slow resources
    • Fixed configuration/bookmarks/rnd issues related to lack of write access for unprivileged users (Windows and Linux installable packages)
    • Improved file/archive browser's keyboard shorcuts:
      • Backspace mapped to browse previous path
      • More functional keys are now supported
        • F2 browse desktop / Ctrl+F2 home / Shift+F2 root
        • F3 search (recoursive) / Shift+F3 search here (non recoursive)
        • F4 up one level
        • F6 toggle browse/flat view
        • F7 browse most recently visited item / Ctrl+F7 second / Shift+F7 third
        • F8 browse first item in bookmarks list / Ctrl+F8 second / Shift+F8 third
        • F9 toggle extract in new folder status / Shift+F9 reset extraction path to default
        • F11 extract selected to
        • F12 extract selected here
      • "Quick delete" and "Secure delete" bounded to del and shift+del respectively; shift+backspace remains for "Remove from layout" event in layout composer interface and is no longer used in file/archive manager
  • System integration:
    • New "Extract..." system's menu entry to allow specify path, extraction in new folder, password and other options
    • On Extract here (and list/test functions) from system's menus, now PeaZip test if password is needed and if archive is not corrupted (for performance reasons only for archives smaller than 100MB)
  • New localizations:
    • Czech, German, Portuguese, Russian
    • Toolbar buttons' width extended to 110px to better fit text
  • Misc:
    • Added "revision" letter in program's numbering; revisions contains the same text and uses the same localization files with no need of out of order loading as different version does
    • New function to display environment variables
    • Fixed possible cases of "Access violation" message on exit occourring on some configurations

  • Program Information
