It was true prio to version 2.3

I verified that version 2.3 handles tar permissions correctly. I downloaded applications from TMKK XLD and successfully extracted it with correct permissions. Everything seems to work. (I notified tmkk about the fix).

version 2.0.0 release.

1. Startup time is improved (make sure your java is 1.5 not 1.4).
2. Implemented correct handling of national encodings in the file names inside archives.
3. Automatic opening of nested archives.
4. Sorting by filename/size/date.
5. Bug fixes.

Zipeg is not Windows only. It is actually developed on and for Macintosh and was ported to Windows lately.
Try http://www.zipeg.com/mac.index.html

1.0.1 did not support neither 7 zip nor rar, arj or other dozen of formats. I've adopted p7zip plugin (many thanks to Igor Pavlov for his excellent software) and now it is 7zip and other archives compatible. Enjoy. :-)

why the file extension is .s7z?!
the 7-zip envelope is .7z
I want to be able to open resulting archives on other platforms with other 7z compatible software.

why? the mac way of doing the same is packing AppleDouble into zip archives. And e.g. BetterZip does a good job on striping it out if it is not necessary... There is naming conventions after all. Oh well. Poor users - yet another new envelope format. :-(

thanks. I really appreciate open discussion. Good luck with the improvements.

Developer Note: Why bother? ZIP + JPEG = ZIPEG :-)

Dear Zipeg User,

Here is some explanation of why yet another archive extractor?

I basically developed it for myself at first because I liked WinZip on Windows and lacked ease of archive browsing when I switched to OS X. Though there are many other archivers I needed something that reflects my un-archiver usage pattern.

I've noticed that I rarely create zip files myself but when friends send me photos from the last party I want to preview them before extracting all.

All modern digital JPEG photographs contains tiny EXIF header with a thumbnail in it. Zipeg extracts and shows this thumbnail, and let me decide which files I really want to unzip.

Frequently, when installing open source software, I usually unzip into the same directory first (namely e.g. /User/leo/tmp//) and than work from there.

And in some occasions, I want to navigate inside the archive and simply drag and drop single file or image to desktop without unzipping all 100,000 files from my svn-tar-ball.

I understand that in a way Zipeg is inferior to some of the Bigger Brothers - but I want to develop it further, add more formats and simple to use features.

I would love to hear your comments, critique and suggestions for further development. I enjoyed making it for you. Hope you will find it useful.

And if you experience any problems let me know - I will work hard to fix them.
