.7z = 7zip compression

http://www.7-zip.org/

Like lha, zip, rar and all the rest. Seems to compress better than most though.

Quote:
7z Format

7z is the new archive format, providing high compression ratio.

The main features of 7z format:


  • Open architecture
  • High compression ratio
  • Strong AES-256 encryption
  • Ability of using any compression, conversion or encryption method
  • Supporting files with sizes up to 16000000000 GB
  • Unicode file names
  • Solid compressing
  • Archive headers compressing

7z format offers SUPERIOR compression, but also takes MUCH time...

Nice to know this horrid piece of software (7z) that does have a nice/tehnical compression algorithm can actually be used by a reasonably nice front-end now

Too bad you can't create .7zips tho. Guess that'd put .rar into the pasture. Good business decision.
Jim, why is it horrid? Is it instability? Does the interface suck?

It has all the amiga adf files contained in the Tosec database version 0.29.
In other words, lots and lots of games.
