    Latest 7-Zip Update


    Latest 7-Zip Version
    21.07

    26 December 2021
    7-Zip


    Changelog: http://7-zip.org/history.txt


    21.07 2021-12-26
    -------------------------
    - 7-Zip now can extract VHDX disk images (Microsoft Hyper-V Virtual Hard Disk v2 format).
    - New switches: -spm and -im!{file_path} to exclude directories from processing
    for specified paths that don't contain path separator character at the end of path.
    - In the "Add to Archive" window, now it is allowed to use -m prefix for "Parameters"
    field as in command line: -mparam.
    - The sorting order of files in archives was slightly changed to be more consistent
    for cases where the name of some directory is the same as the prefix part of the name
    of another directory or file.
    - TAR archives created by 7-Zip now are more consistent with archives created by GNU TAR program.



    The main features of 7-Zip

    High compression ratio in 7z format with LZMA and LZMA2 compression

    7-Zip isn't just a compression tool, it's a very powerful file manager(like File Explorer) and shows just about EVERYTHING on your system. I use it to move large hidden files for example. Plus you can set it up in view double:

    Igor's program is a great tool; I am even using it myself. But I don't understand, why he really never releases a stable version.

    It's stabile enough for "most" users, but for companies or professionals that depend on it, the last stabile, no matter how old, is more important.
    Like how Microsoft has different rings now, where Enterprise get new stuff after years, or in Ubuntu based OS's there are 6 month releases only and evwery 2 years an LTS version where support length differ and new stuff is introduced.

    Same here. 7-zip is great. And it's even greater after reading today that WinRAR has a critical vulnerability allowing remote execution of code.
