WinRAR 4.10 Beta 4 released

WinRAR is an archiving utility that completely supports RAR and ZIP archives and is able to unpack CAB, ARJ, LZH, TAR, GZ, ACE, UUE, BZ2, JAR, ISO, 7Z, Z archives. It consistently makes smaller archives than the competition, saving disk space and transmission costs.

WinRAR offers a graphic interactive interface utilizing mouse and menus as well as the command line interface. WinRAR is easier to use than many other archivers with the inclusion of a special “Wizard” mode which allows instant access to the basic archiving functions through a simple question and answer procedure.

WinRAR offers you the benefit of industry strength archive encryption using AES (Advanced Encryption Standard) with a key of 128 bits. It supports files and archives up to 8,589 billion gigabytes in size. It also offers the ability to create selfextracting and multivolume archives. With recovery record and recovery volumes, you can reconstruct even physically damaged archives.

WinRAR 4.10 Beta 4 features improved detection of UTF-8 encoding in file names in ZIP archives. WinRAR attempts to recognize Unicode names, even when UTF-8 flag is not present in ZIP archive headers.

The following bugs are fixed in this build:

a) If switch -t was set in RAR environment variable, WinRAR “View” command failed to open archived files;

b) “”Autodetect” string” option in “Define volume sizes” dialog did not work;

c) If “Split to volumes, size” in default compression profile was set to “Autodetect”, “Delete” and “Add comment” commands refused to modify ZIP archives.
