Software News   Software News : 7-Zip for AmigaOS Updated!
   posted by diegocr on 17-Feb-2009 21:47:10 (2921 reads)
7-Zip is a file archiver with the highest compression ratio. The program supports 7z (that implements LZMA compression algorithm), ZIP, CAB, ARJ, GZIP, BZIP2, TAR, CPIO, RPM and DEB formats. Compression ratio in the new 7z format is 30-50% better than ratio in ZIP format.

This release includes 7za 4.65 for AmigaOS 3.x and 4.x

Changes to the Amiga version are as follow:

- Improved speed a lot (previous version was compiled without optimizations..)
- Added support for Amiga paths
- No stack problems (hopefully)

NOTE: The os3 builds are some quick&dirty compiles done in ~20 minutes and tested only to create/extract .7z archives, feel free to report any issue you may encounter. OS4 build took a little more to create.. and thanks to Kicko who helped testing.

More info and downloads at Amiga.sf

OS4.x link here.

The 7zip for OS3.x on Aminet is different port of the same 7zip version, right?

Thank you for this. 7zip is a great compression tool that is gaining more use on the PC, so having this for AmigaOS 3.x and 4.x is excellent news. I'll have a play with the 3.x version in a bit.

to unpack RAR files use UnRAR found on OS4Depot.
