WinRAR 5.21 Final Corporate

Hello Guys!

Enjoy the latest FINAL build from WINRAR!

 WinRAR - What's new in the latest version


   Version 5.21

   1. "Drag and drop context menu" options in "Settings/Integration/
      Context menu items" dialog allow to disable WinRAR archiving
      and extraction commands in context menu displayed after dragging
      and dropping files with right mouse button.

   2. If winrar.ini file is present in the same folder as WinRAR installer,
      winrar.ini will be copied to WinRAR program folder after completing
      installation.

   3. While previous versions could produce RAR5 volumes of slightly
      smaller than requested size sometimes, such situation is less
      likely now. In most cases volume size equals to specified by user.

   4. Now by default WinRAR skips symbolic links with absolute paths
      in link target when extracting. You can enable creating such links
      with "Allow absolute paths in symbolic links" option on "Advanced"
      page of extraction dialog or with -ola command line switch.

      Such links pointing to folders outside of extraction destination
      folder can present a security risk. Enable their extraction only
      if you are sure that archive contents is safe, such as your own backup.
      
   5. Bugs fixed:

      a) WinRAR 5.20 issued unnecessary user account control (UAC) prompt,
         when running an executable from archive stored in UAC protected
         folder. Since nothing is extracted to folder containing an archive
         in such case, UAC prompt is not needed;

      b) WinRAR could overwrite files with read-only attribute only
         when unpacking RAR and ZIP archive formats. Now it is also
         implemented for other archive formats supported by WinRAR;

      c) "Elapsed time" and "Time left" were displayed incorrectly
         when applying "Convert" command to multiple archives
         and enabling "Add recovery record" option.

It’s Official Windows 10 is the next best thing!

Dear Friends,

I just upgraded my Windows 8.1 on Alienware 14 to Windows 10 Preview today. What I found is that there are many changes in OS upgrade process, where there is no compatibility issue I used to face back in the old days. Microsoft has really really improved theirs tech on this and I am very impress. The OS is fluid, every single functions work perfectly just like they should be. I also can’t deny that I’m feeling some influences of the flow and UI from the OSX. However, Windows 10 is completely overthrown the OSX premiumness at this point.

I have complete no doubt that this will be the next big thing for 2015, and it will completely changes the face of the current Windows platform forever.

WinRAR 5.21 Beta 2 Corporate

Hello Guys,

Let’s get update with the latest BETA version of WinRAR.

 WinRAR - What's new in the latest version


   Version 5.21 beta 2

   1. Now by default WinRAR skips symbolic links with absolute paths
      in link target when extracting. You can enable creating such links
      with "Allow absolute paths in symbolic links" option on "Advanced"
      page of extraction dialog or with -ola command line switch.

      Such links pointing to folders outside of extraction destination
      folder can present a security risk. Enable their extraction only
      if you are sure that archive contents is safe, such as your own backup.

   2. Bugs fixed:

      a) if several files from different folders were selected
         and extracted using "Flat folders view" file list mode
         and "Extract relative paths" extraction option, WinRAR could
         truncate paths of some of these files. It did not happen
         if entire file list contents or a single file was selected.

   
   Version 5.21 beta 1

   1. "Drag and drop context menu" options in "Settings/Integration/
      Context menu items" dialog allow to disable WinRAR archiving
