    • WinRAR - Aktuelle Version

      1. Numerous Windows Vista compatibility changes:

      a) help format changed from old HLP to newer HTML based CHM;

      b) GUI self-extracting modules attempt to request for
      administrator permissions if they cannot create destination
      folder under current user account;

      c) Log file rar.log and WinRAR theme files are stored
      in %APPDATA%\WinRAR folder instead of WinRAR program files folder.

      Exported settings file settings.reg is also stored
      in %APPDATA%\WinRAR folder by default, but it is possible to
      select another folder in "Save WinRAR settings" and "Load WinRAR
      settings" dialogs.

      WinRAR searches for registration key and settings.reg
      both in its program files folder and in %APPDATA%\WinRAR;

      It is possible to set the string value "AppData" in Registry key
      HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\WinRAR\Paths to override the default
      %appdata%\WinRAR path for WinRAR settings.

      For example, if you wish to store theme files in WinRAR folder,
      set this value to "c:\Program Files\WinRAR".

      d) Vista compatibility changes in WinRAR shell integration;

      e) New "Request administrative access" option in "Advanced" page
      of "Advanced SFX options" allows to create SFX archive,
      which will request the administrative access when started
      in Windows Vista.

      Command line equivalent of this option is -iadm switch.

      2. Added support for ISO 13346 (UDF) file format. This format
      is frequently used in ISO images of DVD disks.

      3. Added Unicode support for ISO 9660 files, so WinRAR should
      handle non-English file names in .iso files better.

      4. Design changes in window displaying archiving and extraction

      a) it provides more space for file names, allowing lengthy names;

      b) it displays the current archive name in separate line,
      allowing much longer archive names than before;

      c) when archiving, it displays the current compression ratio
      in separate line;

      d) it can use both standard Windows and classic WinRAR progress bars.
      Turn on "Windows progress bars" option in WinRAR "Settings/General"
      dialog to use standard progress bars. By default this option is
      on if some Windows visual style is active and off if Windows Classic
      theme is selected.

      Windows progress bars are two color only, so they do not indicate
      the current compression ratio. But now the ratio is displayed
      in separate line;

      e) "Mode..." button moved to bottom of window.

      5. GUI self-extracting modules support following command line

      -d set the destination path
      -p specify a password
      -s silent mode, hide all
      -s1 same as -s
      -s2 silent mode, hide start dialog
      -sp specify parameters for setup program

      6. GUI self-extracting modules do not pass the entire command line
      to setup program like they did in previous versions.
      If you need to get access to entire command line of SFX archive,
      parse sfxcmd environment variable which contains this command line.

      7. New switch -sc[objects] allowing to select character
      sets for archive comments and list files. It replaces -fcu switch
      introduced in RAR 3.60, which was removed from list of supported
      switches. Now you need to specify -scuc instead of -fcu to use
      Unicode comments. Unlike -fcu, -sc also supports OEM and ANSI charset.

      8. New "Save archive copy as..." command in "File" menu.
      This command may be useful if you opened an archive from Internet
      directly in WinRAR and then decided to save it on local disk.

      9. "Word wrap" command added to "View" menu of WinRAR internal viewer,
      so you can change the wrapping mode of already opened viewer window.

      State of this option is not stored between viewing sessions.
      If you need to change the default word wrap mode, use WinRAR
      "Settings/Viewer" dialog.

      10. Buttons "Up" and "Down" added to "Organize profiles" dialog.
      Using these buttons you can change position of selected profile
      in the list.

      11. Operation progress is displayed when adding the recovery record.

      12. If WinRAR is minimized to tray and mouse is over its icon,
      WinRAR diplays a message about the current operation progress.
      In previous versions it included only percent done, now it also
      contains the time left information.

      13. Console RAR displays "Calculating the control sum" message
      when calculating CRC32 control sum for newly created RAR volume.
      Previous versions also calculated the volume control sum,
      but did it silently.

      14. Archives history list in "File" menu allows Unicode names,
      providing more reliable support for non-English archive names.

      15. Stack overflow vulnerability has been corrected in password
      processing module of console RAR and UnRAR. GUI WinRAR is not
      affected. We are thankful to the iDEFENSE LABS for reporting this bug.

    • WinRAR 3.8


      1. Version 3.80
      2. 1. Added support for ZIP archives containing Unicode file names
      3. in UTF-8 format. When creating ZIP archive, WinRAR stores
      4. names in Unicode only if they cannot be stored correctly using
      5. the current single byte character set.
      6. 2. Added decompression support for WinZip AES encrypted ZIP archives.
      7. 3. Improved Unicode support for RAR and ZIP archive names.
      8. 4. "Ask before overwrite" and "Skip existing files" update modes
      9. are now available in archiving dialog. They allow to specify
      10. WinRAR behavior when updating already existing files in archive.
      11. Unlike already available "Fresh existing files only" and
      12. "Add and update files", these new modes ignore file date
      13. and compare only file names.
      14. Command line equivalents of these modes are:
      15. a) switch -o enables "Ask before overwrite" archiving mode;
      16. b) switch -o- enables "Skip existing files" archiving mode;
      17. c) switch -o+ enables "Overwrite all" mode (default for archiving).
      18. 5. New "Add to context menu" option in "Profile parameters" dialog.
      19. If this option is on, the profile name will be displayed in Explorer
      20. context menus allowing to activate a profile from context menu.
      21. 6. New -cp switch allows to select a compression profile
      22. in command line mode. It is supported only by GUI WinRAR.exe,
      23. not by rar.exe.
      24. 7. New "Options" page of archiving dialog contains the group of
      25. settings modifying the behavior of "Delete files after archiving"
      26. option from "General" page:
      27. a) Delete files. Delete files normally like in previous WinRAR
      28. versions.
      29. b) Move files to Recycle Bin. Deleted files are placed to
      30. Recycle Bin.
      31. Command line equivalent of this option is -dr switch.
      32. c) Wipe files. Before deleting file data are overwritten by
      33. zero bytes to prevent recovery of deleted files.
      34. Command line equivalent of this option is -dw switch.
      35. All these options have an effect only if "Delete files
      36. after archiving" is on. You can enable any of these options
      37. in the default compression profile to change the default
      38. behavior of "Delete files after archiving".
      39. 8. WinRAR "Extraction path and options" dialog is now resizable.
      40. You can use the mouse to drag its border to the desired size
      41. and provide more space for folder tree pane. WinRAR will store
      42. new dimensions of this dialog.
      43. 9. New "Update" SFX script command and "Update mode" group
      44. of options in "Update" page of "Advanced SFX options" dialog.
      45. These command and options allow to check time and implement
      46. file time based updating;
      47. 10. SFX script "Shortcut" command and "Add shortcut..." command
      48. in "Advanced SFX options" dialog now allow to specify
      49. an icon file containing an icon associated with shortcut.
      50. 11. New "Wipe temporary files" option in "Settings/Security" dialog
      51. provides more secure, though slower, way to delete temporary
      52. WinRAR files.
      53. 12. WinRAR and RAR display the total progress bar when unpacking
      54. a multivolume RAR archive if all volumes are present
      55. in the same folder.
      56. 13. WinRAR and RAR automatically expand names of environment
      57. variables in list files. For example, a list file can contain
      58. lines like:
      59. %windir%\*.exe
      60. %USERPROFILE%\Desktop
      61. This feature is available only in Windows RAR version.
      62. 14. Added support of TAR archives with non-zero "extra field" data.
      63. 15. Added support of TAR archives, which does not contain
      64. the end of archive entry consisting of 512 zero bytes.
      65. 16. Improved Unicode support when dragging files from WinRAR window.
      66. 17. Shift+Tab key combination can be used in main WinRAR window to
      67. switch the input focus between interface elements (files, comment,
      68. tree, address) in reverse order. In previous versions Shift+Tab
      69. used the same order as Tab.
      70. 18. Corrected a possible WinRAR crash when opening truncated
      71. UDF ISO files.

    • WinRAR 3.90 Beta 4


      * New 'Shutdown' variable in 'Software\WinRAR\Policy' registry key allows to disable "Turn PC off when done" option for security reasons. Read "Configuration settings/Registry variables" for more details.
      * Program Compatibility Assistant in Windows 7 will not display an erroneous "This program might not have installed correctly" message after closing RAR SFX archives created by this beta.
      * Improved compatibility with high DPI Windows display mode.
      * Bugs fixed:
      o beta 3 did not display archiving commands in context menu if user selected several archives;
      o beta 3 did not handle 'LongLink' records in TAR archives correctly;
      o recovery record based repair did not work correctly in previous beta versions;
      o beta 3 could display a folder icon for archived files without a file extension.

    • Version 3.92

      1. If you start WinRAR command from Explorer context menu in multiple
      monitor configuration, the command dialog will be displayed
      on the same monitor as context menu. In previous versions it was
      always displayed on primary monitor.

      2. WinRAR "Compress and email..." context menu command adds the archive
      name to email subject. Previous versions left the subject blank.

      3. In RAR 3.91 -x switch could also exclude folders from archiving
      even if mask contained wilcard characters and did not contain a path.
      For example, -x*. excluded all those folders, which do not have
      the extension in the name. Now -x switch uses RAR 3.80 approach
      for masks without path, excluding folders only if mask does not
      contain wildcards and matches the folder name exactly.

      4. Bugs fixed:

      a) WinRAR 3.91 reported the incorrect "Unexpected end of archive"
      error, when opening an empty ZIP archive created with
      "New WinRAR ZIP archive" context menu command;

      b) if "Delete archive" option was enabled when unpacking several
      ZIP archives and if one of archives was damaged, WinRAR did not
      delete archives after the damaged one, even if they were unpacked

      c) if file matched two different masks in RarFiles.lst, WinRAR
      could select the last match. Normally, if neither of masks
      is a subset of another, the first match must be chosen.
    • 4.00 beta 1

      1. RAR decompression speed is improved. Depending on data type,
      decompression can be up to 30% faster than in previous versions.

      Both the general RAR algorithm and most of special RAR multimedia
      methods benefit from this improvement. The only module of RAR
      algorithm, which is not affected, is "Text compression" method.

      2. Changes in ISO support:

      a) UDF support is upgraded to UDF 2.50 revision. It makes possible
      to unpack most of Blue-ray ISO files;

      b) when browsing UDF ISO file, UDF revision number is displayed
      after the "UDF" format name in WinRAR address bar
      and in archive information dialog;

      c) WinRAR sets the folder modification date when unpacking folders
      stored in UDF and ISO9660 files.

      3. Changes in password dialog:

      a) WinRAR uses the same format of password dialog both when archiving
      and extracting, so "Show password" option is available also
      when extracting;

      b) "Organize passwords..." button in password dialog provides
      access to password organizer interface, where you can specify
      your frequently used passwords. You will be able to access these
      saved passwords using the drop down list or autocomplete feature
      in password dialog.

      It is important to know that saved passwords are not encrypted
      and anybody having access to your computer can view them.
      Use "Organize passwords" feature only if your computer is
      protected from unauthorized access;

      c) "Use for all archives" option is available in password dialog
      when unpacking several archives at once. You can utilize it
      to apply an entered password to all archives.

      If you use this option with an empty password, WinRAR will skip
      all encrypted archives.

      4. In Windows 7 WinRAR will display the total operation progress
      also on WinRAR icon on Windows taskbar. You can disable it using
      "Taskbar progress bar" option on "General" page of WinRAR settings.

      5. Numerous Unicode support improvements allow to process non-English
      file names more smoothly. These improvements include:

      a) better Unicode handling in WinRAR in "Rename", "Convert",
      "Find" and other commands, in folder tree panel, in password
      request dialog and in many other parts of WinRAR interface;

      b) correctly displayed Unicode names in WinRAR items in Explorer
      context menus;

      c) Unicode support in .lng files, making WinRAR localization
      possible for Unicode only languages.

      6. Changes in -x switch syntax. Now you can specify a wildcard
      exclusion mask for folders. Such mask must have the trailing '\'
      character, like -x*tmp*\ or -x*\temp\

      7. New "Extract relative paths" option in "Advanced" part of extraction
      dialog. If you browse some archive subfolder in WinRAR shell
      and enable "Extract relative paths" option, the path part up to
      and including the current subfolder will be removed from extracted
      file paths.

      For example, if you are inside of "Backup\MyData" archive folder
      and extract "Images" folder, it will be extracted as "Images",
      not as "Backup\MyData\Images".

      This option is the new default extraction mode, but you can change
      the default back to WinRAR 3.x style. Just select "Extract full paths"
      and then press "Save settings" in "General" part of extraction dialog.

      8. Windows 98, Windows Me and Windows NT are not supported by WinRAR
      and WinRAR self-extracting modules anymore. Minimum Windows version
      required for WinRAR 4.0 is Windows 2000.

      If you need to run WinRAR on older Windows, you can download
      previous WinRAR versions from

      9. If TAR, TAR.GZ or TAR.BZ2 archive contains symbolic or hard links
      and if destination file system is NTFS, WinRAR will create these
      links when unpacking such archive. WinRAR will create symbolic links
      as symbolic and hard links as hard in Windows Vista and newer
      and it will create all links as hard in older Windows.

      If destination file system is FAT32 or any other not supporting
      file links, WinRAR will skip links when unpacking TAR, TAR.GZ
      and TAR.BZ2 archives.

      10. Recovery volume processing involves less disk seek operations
      resulting in higher performance.

      11. You can select Windows 7 library in tree panel in extraction dialog
      and WinRAR will use its default save location as the destination path.

      12. "Report" command allows to select HTML, Unicode text and usual text
      as output format for report file. Unlike previous WinRAR versions,
      now WinRAR preservers Unicode characters in reports when using HTML
      or Unicode text format. So non-English characters in file names
      will be displayed properly in such reports.

      13. Message list in GUI SFX archives displays only operation status
      and error messages. It does not contain names of all extracted files
      anymore. This change improves the speed and reduces memory requirements
      for SFX archives containing a large number of files. Also it makes
      easier to locate error messages, because they are not hidden among
      extracted file names.

      14. GUI SFX archives display "Extract" button instead of "Install"
      if no "Setup" or "Presetup" commands are present in the archive
      comment. If you prefer "Install" button, but do not need to
      execute any setup programs, you can add "Setup" command
      without any parameters.

      15. WinRAR displays the current percent above the operation progress bar
      when repairing an archive containing the recovery record
      and when processing recovery volumes.

      16. WinRAR limits the maximum possible volume size to 4 GB minus 1 byte
      when creating RAR volumes on a disk with FAT or FAT32 file system
      in volume size autodetecting mode. These file systems do not support
      4 GB and larger files.

      17. If "Wait if other WinRAR copies are active" option is enabled
      and WinRAR waits for another copy, you can press "Continue" button
      in command progress window to force WinRAR to stop waiting.
      So now "Continue" button allows to override the state of
      "Wait if other WinRAR copies are active" option for current operation.

      18. WinRAR displays one password request instead of two, when saving
      an encrypted file back to RAR or ZIP archive after modifying it
      in some external editor. Previous WinRAR versions usually requested
      the password twice, both when extracting the original file
      and archiving its modified copy. Only RAR archives with encrypted
      file names were processed with the single password prompt.

      19. New error code 10 ("no files") is added to list of error codes
      returned in command line mode by RAR and WinRAR. This new code
      can be returned by archive, extract, delete and repair commands.
      It means that RAR did not find any files matched the specified
      file or archive mask.

      20. File name area in file overwrite dialog occupies several lines now.
      It makes possible to display much longer names.

      21. Bugs fixed:

      a) renaming a file in archive could also rename all other files
      with the same name in other folders of the same archive;

      b) previous versions displayed the wrong total packed size
      in "Info" command for multivolume CAB archives;

      c) in ZIP archives 'U' (update) and 'F' (fresh) commands could
      erroneously update even files not specified in the command line.
      It happened only for files in current folder which names matched
      files in ZIP archive. This bug was not present in usual 'A' (add)
      archiving mode.

    • 4.00 Beta 2

      1. "Reenter password for verification" field is not displayed in password
      dialog when extracting or opening an encrypted archive. It is present
      only when archiving and only if "Show password" option is off.

      2. If you enabled "Use for all archives" option when entering the default
      password (Ctrl+P) and specified the empty password, extract and test
      commands will skip all encrypted archives.

      3. If you prefer to use "Install" button instead of "Extract"
      in SFX module, but do not need any setup programs, you can add
      "Setup=<>" command to archive comment or enter "<>" as setup name
      in "Advanced SFX options" dialog.

      We changed it to "Setup=<>" instead of "Setup" as in the first beta,
      because presence of specific parameter allows to enable this mode also
      through "Advanced SFX options" dialog, by entering "<>" as setup name.

      4. Bugs fixed:

      a) extraction operation activated from Explorer context menu could fail
      if several archives were selected and processed at once;

      b) WinRAR window title did not contain the current disk name,
      when browsing the root disk folder;

      c) items related to extraction were not present in Explorer context menu
      for 7-Zip self-extracting archives;

      d) sorting by "Type" in WinRAR shell did not work inside of archives.

    • 4.00 beta 3

      1. Now switch -ep3 converts not only disk letters, but also UNC paths.
      So \\server\share will be converted to __server\share when archiving
      and restored to the original \\server\share when extracting with -ep3.

      2. Bugs fixed:

      a) previous beta could fail to unpack self-extracting and multivolume
      CAB archives;

      b) "Create a new folder" command always created new folders
      in the root archive folder;

      c) "Remove redundant folders from extraction path" option did not work;

      d) previous beta crashed when displaying archive comments
      with ANSI escape sequences;

      e) switches -cl and -cu did not work.
