PeaZip 8.4.0 release notes:

  • PeaZip 8.4.0 is the first release providing experimental native packages for Darwin / macOS platform, built for aarch64 M1 Apple Silicon SoC, and Intel x86_64.
  • This release brings fixes, improvements in management of temporary files, option to stop test batches only if errors are detected, and new language selection control.
  • A new alternative benchmark is available, based on integer and floating point arithmetic, testing single core and multi core performances.
  • PeaZip now comes with updated backends: Pea 1.05, and 7z 21.06, which is now employed on all platform.
  • On Linux, 7z backend replaces p7zip, which is still fully supported as alternative.
  • New peazip-x.y.z.pack package is meant to help developers to create packages of PeaZip for various package management systems (e.g. DEB, RPM), containing packages' directories from last build.
  • It does not replaces or duplicates the function of sources package peazip-x.y.z.src, as it is simply meant to help packaging the application for a specific distribution system, rather than compiling and building the binaries of the application.
