PeaZip is a free file archiver utility. The application provides an unified, natively portable, cross-platform file manager and archive manager GUI for many Open Source technologies like 7-Zip, FreeArc, PAQ, UPX.
Create: 7Z, ARC, Brotli, BZip, GZip, PEA, TAR, WIM, XZ, ZPAQ, ZIP, Zstandard files and more
Open and extract 200+ file types: ACE, CAB, DEB, ISO, RAR, ZIPX and more
Features of PeaZip includes extract, create and convert multiple archives at once, edit existing archives, create self-extracting archives (sfx), split files, strong encryption with two factor authentication, encrypted password manager, secure deletion, find duplicate files, calculate hashes, export task definition as command line script.
PeaZip 7.9.0 introduces PEA 1.00, improves temporary files management, enhances GUI usability allowing to customize items spacing and zoom, and improves ZPAQ support, automatically removing extra nesting levels on extraction.
On Linux systems, interactive extraction is now enabled by default, and Qt5 DEB and RPM packages are now available alongside Portable package.
Pea 1.00: added 512 bit hash functions to PeaUtils menu, also available from Windows context menu (CRC, hash entry): Blake2b, SHA512, SHA3_512, Whirlpool
Improved theming: new customizable parameters - beyond standard scaling which follows system's metric - can be set at runtime, and saved into themes, to improve usability for visually impaired users, small / far screens, or touch devices
Spacing small, medium, large to increase spacing in file manager and row height in tables
Zooming 100% to 150% to enlarge icons and graphic elements
(Windows) Quick delete function can now delete files requiring UAC elevation Working directory is now set to by default to: user tmp for preview operations, output for other operations
"Extract everything for" preview for special file types now uses working directory (as standard preview mode)
"Interactive extraction" now uses working directory; disallowing temporary work files results in disabling interactive extraction, falling back to standard extraction mode
EXTRACTION and ARCHIVING
(Linux) Improved interactive extraction, which is now set on by default in extraction screen; if no naming conflict is detected, the output data is now moved, if possible, rather than copied to the intended destination, which is extremely faster
(Windows XP, ReactOS) Fixed handling non supported additional 7Z codecs
(Windows) "TAR before" action now correctly asks for UAC elevation if needed
Improved support for ZPAQ format
Fixed test of ZPAQ format from context menu
ZPAQ format extraction, without checking "Absoulte paths", removes extra nesting levels from the output
In case multiple revisions are featured, the nesting (which starts from the root of the archive) is preserved
Main window is now hidden during list, test, and ctrl+c/ctrl+v extraction operations, in order to reduce visual clutter accordingly with behavior during archive, and extract operations
WINDOWS & LINUX INSTALLERS
(Linux) Qt5 build available pre-packed as DEB and RPM, alongside portable version not requiring installation
