NanaZip 3.0 is out with a Windows 11-like UI, Mica, no 32-bit support, and more

NanaZIP 30

Windows 11 already has pretty decent support for compressed files (more improvements are coming with version 24H2). However, it still cannot beat dedicated apps like 7-Zip or NanaZip, which offer better performance and more features. Speaking of features, NanaZip has just received a big new update. Version 3.0 is now available for download with a reworked Windows 11-like UI, Mica, better dark mode, and more.

Starting with version 3.0, NanaZIP splits into two "flavors:" NanaZip and NanaZip Classic. The main difference between the two is that the regular version no longer supports 32-bit. NanaZip Classic also works on much older Windows versions (down to Vista), while the standard NanaZip requires Windows 10 version 2004 and newer. Customers can also support NanaZip development by purchasing its $99.99 Sponsor Edition from the Microsoft Store.

NanaZip 3.0 brings a reworked user interface that now looks much better on Windows 11 PCs. There's also a proper dark mode for all parts of the app, Mica support on Windows 11, the SM3 HASH algorithm and all the mainline improvements from 7-Zip version 24.05.

Here is the rest of the changelog for NanaZip 3.0:

  • Rewrite and split the implementation of the Core Library and the Self Extracting Executable to the separate NanaZip.Codecs and NanaZip.Core projects.
