New major version of PeaZip, 7.0.0 introduces a revamped GUI engine with improved support for high DPI, auto scaling for all UI elements and graphic, and updated themes and icons. Amongst several updates, PeaZip can now automatically open tar archives inside tar.* compressed files, hot swap drag and drop from standard and custom mode, and it is now easier to detect duplicate files and analyze content of folders from the application's file manager. Windows 32 and 64 bit installers are improved and can now install the application for all users or current user only.
Added option to automatically open tar archive inside tar.* compressed files Option is on by default, can be set in Options > Settings > Archive manager
Drag & drop can now be hot swapped between standard and custom mode while using the application
Improved finding duplicate files, both with crc/hash and quick duplicate check: Info column shows "D" for duplicate for each copy of file with same digest value, except the last copy found Sorting files for Info column allows to quickly select (and delete) duplicate items Sorting files for checksum/hash column allows to easily compare identical files as in previous versions
New function to analyze content of folders in file browser (from column header menu) Info column marks empty folders with "E" Checksum/hash column shows content of folders: number of directories, number of files, and total size
New scaling mechanism for better support of high DPI in PeaZip and Pea executables UI elements are scaled at run time at discrete steps zooming up to 10x of design time size, using Lazaruz LCL scaling Graphic is accordingly scaled at run time, accepting arbitrarily sized graphic sources Embedded 16 and 32 pixel icons are currently provided with 3x definition (48 and 96 pixel respectively) to provide high quality graphic up to 300% scaling New themes for PeaZip version 7+ uses 8 or 32 bit PNG with transparency, and currently provides 16 and 32 pixel icons upscaled to 3x definition
New Windows icons for menus and file types; new icons allows to better distinguish supported file types, at large and small resolutions
When a single file of unsupported format is passed as parameter, the application lets the user decide if to try to open it as archive or to add it to new archive
Various fixes Fixed System benchmark tool
EXTRACTION and ARCHIVING
Improved progress bar accuracy
Option to delete input files after task completion is now globally applied to all archiving / extraction functions
Also batch version of direct archiving / extraction functions now apply the deletion on completion policy accordingly to the application's configuration
Alternative versions of batch commands are now available in order to explicitly ignore deletion on completion policy, with "i" appended after function name: -add2peai, -add2crypti, -add27zi, -add27zmaili, -add2separate7zi, -add2sfx7zi, -add2sfx7zmaili, -add2zipi, -add2zipmaili, -add2separatezipi, and -ext2herei, -ext2folderi, -ext2toi, ext2tofolderi, -ext2simplei, -ext2simplefolderi
Fixed and improved -add2split batch command, can now accept multiple input files and folders (if more than one file is passed as input it will be consolidated in a tar archive)
