EXTRACTION and ARCHIVING
Interactive extraction option (checked by default on Windows) enables two-step extraction for all archive types supported through 7z/p7zip: content is extracted to a fresh folder and then moved to actual output destination with standard system's calls.
- When interactive extraction is used, all unneeded levels of directory nesting are removed, and conflicts with existing files are prompted interactively to user.
- Unchecking the option, it is possible to perform single-step extraction as in previous versions, with policy based directives to resolve naming conflicts without needing user interaction (recommended when creating scripts).
It is now possible to set custom extensions for "Extract everything for" in Options > Settings > Archive manager, Extract group
It is now possible to replace archive extension with a custom extension from archiving screen, Advanced tab; in res/presets/custom directory are provided some pre built compression settings for comic book archive formats which uses the new custom extension feature
