    Does anyone know whether 7ZIP's implementation of AES has been externally audited?

    20.00 alpha 2020-02-06
    -------------------------
    - 7-Zip now supports new optional match finders for LZMA/LZMA2 compression: bt5 and hc5,
    that can work faster than bt4 and hc4 match finders for the data with big redundancy.
    - The compression ratio was improved for Fast and Fastest compression levels with the
    following default settings:
    - Fastest level (-mx1) : hc5 match finder with 256 KB dictionary.
    - Fast level (-mx3) : hc5 match finder with 4 MB dictionary.
    - Minor speed optimizations in multithreaded LZMA/LZMA2 compression for Normal/Maximum/Ultra
    compression levels.
    - bzip2 decoding code was updated to support bzip2 archives, created by lbzip2 program.
    - Some bugs were fixed.
    - New localization: Turkmen.

    20.02 alpha 2020-08-08


    New Alpha version out 20.02: 7-Zip / Discussion /
    Open Discussion: 7-Zip 20.02 alpha


    20.02 alpha 2020-08-08
    -------------------------
    - The default number of LZMA2 chunks per solid block in 7z archive was increased to 64.
    It allows to increase the compression speed for big 7z archives, if there is a big number
    of CPU cores and threads.
    - The speed of PPMd compressing/decompressing was increased for 7z/ZIP/RAR archives.
    - The new -ssp switch. If the switch -ssp is specified, 7-Zip doesn't allow the system
    to modify "Last Access Time" property of source files for archiving and hashing operations.
    - Some bugs were fixed.
    - New localization: Swahili.


    Notes about changes in 7-Zip 20.02
    The size of solid block for 7z/LZMA2 archives was increased, so 7-Zip can use more threads and chunks to compress solid block. It can improve the compression speed for multi-core processors like Threadripper/Epyc and Xeon. Also it can slightly improve multi-core LZMA2 decompression speed.

    Some important parts of PPMd code were rewritten for faster compression and decompression.
    And that new PPMd code works faster for data that is not too compressible, like exe files or already compressed data.

    Also PPMD in previous 7-Zip could be slow in some Intel CPUs for decompression, if CVE-2018-3639 Speculative Store Bypass (SSB) mitigation was enabled in system. And new PPMd code must work faster for such cases too.

    Another change of 7-Zip 20.02 is speed optimization in Delta filter code, that is about two times faster than in previous version.
