    Thanks for the update. Still, 7-zip actually released a final version from the latest version? Unbelievable.

    Don't be an idiot. You know perfectly well why he releases beta versions. It is described on the site.

    I'd be happy to take a beta considering it is the best (and most trustworthy) compression program you can get.

    Yes, but I just recalled someone being pretty upset about the stable version never being released.

    Well, it wasn't me.

    Here is a song for Cliff (just to prove it wasn't me). I've no idea how to add a YouTube link so you'll have to take it as a URL

    Thanks for the info about the 18.03 beta.

    Easy install which, unlike previous versions, respected my previous choices and this time didn't put back the context menu entry for CRC SHA. :)

    Interesting and somewhat worrying article about 7_Zip on the AskWoody site. Thoughts about it would be appreciated

    Is it time to give up on 7-Zip? @ AskWoody
