WinRAR is an archiving utility that completely supports RAR and ZIP archives and is able to unpack CAB, ARJ, LZH, TAR, GZ, ACE, UUE, BZ2, JAR, ISO, 7Z, Z archives. It consistently makes smaller archives than the competition, saving disk space and transmission costs. WinRAR offers you the benefit of industry strength archive encryption using AES (Advanced Encryption Standard) with a key of 128 bits. It supports files and archives up to 8,589 billion gigabytes in size. It also offers the ability to create self extracting and multi volume archives. With recovery record and recovery volumes, you can reconstruct even physically damaged archives.
What's new in this version, fixed bugs:
- when processing nested archives, WinRAR could attempt to open inner archive as self-extracting instead of opening an outer archive. It happened if inner archive was stored without compression and outer archive name had non-standard extension;
- Unix RAR could not decompress hard links stored by WinRAR if link source name included path separator characters.
