win.rar GmbH and RARLAB.COM are proud to present the latest update for the world's leading compression and archive management software: WinRAR 5.11.

"By providing regular updates, we are taking care of achieving high compatibility, up-to-dateness, stability and liability of our software. With the latest version we have further improved the usability of alternative archiving formats to fulfill some of our customers' wishes and have fixed several bugs", says Öncül Kaya, Managing Director of win.rar GmbH.

Completely new is the option to unpack TAR archives containing folders with pax extended headers, which previous versions have not been able to decompress. To satisfy user demand and to maintain compatibility with various other formats, WinRAR is supporting the "Keep broken files" extraction option now also for 7-zip archives.

WinRAR is well known since the ages for high compression rates, stability and all the advantages associated with the RAR-format, such as solid archiving, split archiving, recovery records, which allow reconstructing damaged files, various converting functionalities and many security options. With RAR5 the RAR algorithm has been upgraded to include 256-bit AES encryption - further ensuring that the user’s data is fully protected. With RAR encryption, data is safe and sound.

In addition to the RAR-format, WinRAR also supports many other archiving formats, giving the user the utmost flexibility to work with archives and data compression and offers the best compatibility in its class.
