What’s New?

• Windows x64 support

• 7-Zip now doesn't interrupt the compressing when it cannot find specified file as in version 4.24 beta. It just shows a warning.

• 7-Zip now supports standard selection mode in the file list (~_~)

•Some bugs were fixed

Highly recommended for webmasters. 7-zip achieves significanlty tighter compression with many file types, especially HTML or text. A 10.8 Mbyte zip archive that I mirror, compresses to 5.63 Mbytes as a self-extracting 7-zip archive using the Ultra compression mode. Compression is slower, but if a large file is downloaded frequently, it saves some time for your site's users, and a lot of bandwidth.

In the latest beta, one can bookmark ten favourite folders and access them via Alter + Number key shortcuts. This is a great time-saver if you use 7-zip for backup.

Creating or extracting archives from the Windows Explorer shell with right-click is also simple.
