    New beta out: 7-Zip / Discussion /
    Open Discussion: 7-Zip 21.04 beta


    21.04 beta 2021-11-02
    -------------------------
    - 7-Zip now reduces the number of working CPU threads for compression,
    if RAM size is not enough for compression with big LZMA2 dictionary.
    - 7-Zip now can create and check "file.sha256" text files that contain the list
    of file names and SHA-256 checksums in format compatible with sha256sum program.
    7-Zip can work with such checksum files as with archives,
    but these files don't contain real file data.
    The context menu commands to create and test "sha256" files:
    7-Zip / CRC SHA / SHA-256 -> file.sha256
    7-Zip / CRC SHA / Test Archive : Checksum
    The commands for command line version:
    7z a -thash file.sha256 *.txt
    7z t -thash file.sha256
    7z t -thash -shd. file.sha256
    New -shd{dir_path} switch to set the directory that is used to check files
    referenced by "file.sha256" file for "Test" operation.
    If -shd{dir_path} is not specified, 7-Zip uses the directory where "file.sha256" is stored.
    - New -xtd switch to exclude directory items from processing.

    Hi there

    @Cliff S


    Thanks for the update.

    I can confirm at least on my systems it works also on W11 both the standard build 282 and the " dev preview builds too.

    It's also available on Linux as well.

    Have used this program for years -- called 7z-FM on linux
