AZip v.2.0 released

AZip is a Zip archive manager.

The latest addition is an archive recompression tool.


From Gautier
Some features:
  • Multi-document (should be familiar to MS Office users)
  • Flat view / Tree view
  • Simple to use (at least I hope so Winking )
    • Useful tools:
    • Text search function through an archive, without having to extract files
    • Archive updater
    • Integrity check
    • Archive recompression (new), using an algorithm-picking approach for improving a zip archive's compression.
  • Encryption
  • Methods supported: Reduce, Shrink, Implode, Deflate, Deflate64, BZip2, LZMA
  • Free, open-source
  • Portable (no installation needed, no DLL, no configuration file)

"Under the hood" features:
  • AZip is from A to Z in Ada Happy
  • Uses the highly portable Zip-Ada library
  • Portablity to various platforms: currently it's fully implemented with GWindows (for Windows), and there is a GtkAda draft, but anyway the key parts of the UI and user persistence are generic, platform-independent
