win.rar GmbH, publisher for RARLAB software, are proud to announce the first beta version of the new WinRAR 3.70. WinRAR 3.70 is the new Vista compatible version of the famous WinRAR compression software. WinRAR's extensive Vista compatibility will enable Windows users to "go Vista," using a WinRAR version that is as easy and stable to use as before.
Highlights of the 3.70 (beta 1) release are:
WinRAR 3.70 was designed to offer extensive Vista compatibility. So WinRAR 3.70 will be just as easy and reliable to use as under Windows XP.
In addition WinRAR 3.70 now supports the "Universal Disk Format" (UDF; ISO 13346). This file format is frequently used in ISO images of DVD disks. UDF enables working with larger files, larger disks and with more information about individual files and folders.
Further the display and handling of unicode characters was improved. Now non-English file names can be used in .iso files as well.
The window displaying the archiving and extraction progress was extensively redesigned. Users can now see more information about the files being processed and the compression ratio achieved.
Finally WinRAR 3.70 features improved functionality for expert users of self extracting (SFX) archives. New switches allow to define destination path, password, silent mode and other parameters for extraction of SFX archives from command line mode.
These are just some of the features that were added or improved. More information on all of the 15 improved items can be found here http://www.win-rar.com/whatsnew.html.
Of course, as always, the upgrade to 3.70 is absolutely free for all registered users. Upgrading is quick and easy. Users only need to download and install the newest version of WinRAR to continue using the best compression tool around! No complicated uninstalling of the previous version is necessary.
WinRAR is a 32-bit Windows version of RAR Archiver, the powerful archiver and archive manager. RAR files can usually compress content up to 30 percent better than ZIP files. WinRAR's main features are very strong general and multimedia compression, processing of non-RAR archives, long filename support, programmable self-extracting archives(SFX), damaged archive repair, authenticity verification, embedded file comments, and encryption. WinRAR is available in over 40 different languages and runs on Windows 95/98/NT/2000/ME/XP/Vista. The command line version RAR is available for Linux, DOS, OS/2, FreeBSD and MAC OS X. Pocket RAR, the free WinRAR version for Pocket PCs and the new WinRAR for U3 complete the compression product range. So WinRAR simply is "The Size Solution."
