WinRAR 5.71 Beta 2 changelog:

Master password processing

  • if password stored in compression profile is protected with master password and user entered a wrong master password after choosing a profile, "the specified password is incorrect" message is displayed before repeating request;
  • if -cp<profile_name> switch is used, profile stores a password protected with master password and user cancels the master password prompt, the entire archiving command is cancelled. Previous versions continued archiving without a password.

Other changes

  • When repairing archives in command line, it is allowed to specify a name of existing destination folder also without trailing path separator. Previously "r" command accepted only "destfolder\" format. Path separator is still required if destination folder does not exist.

Bugs fixed

  • WinRAR could crash when attempting to display some types of archive comments in GUI shell, resulting in a denial of service;
  • current archive name was not updated in hint message associated with tray icon when repairing several archives in background.
