7-zip updated to 16.04

(1/2) > >>

7-zip stable for Windows updated to 16.04.

Why is this noteworthy?

Well, it doesn't seem noteworthy, given the recent history of changes (see below), but then one never knows how significant those fixes/changes might have been for some users (including oneself). Generally any incremental bugfix or improvement is probably welcome in an archiving tool - given its relative importance in the software armoury. I had v16.03 and as a precautionary approach have just updated to v16.04 anyway, after reading this thread - I use the RAR functionality and also do some work under Vista - so, thanks for the heads-up @MilesAhead.

HISTORY of the 7-Zip

- The bug was fixed: 7-Zip 16.03 exe installer under Vista didn't create
  links in Start / Programs menu.

The update to 16.03 was quite recent and this may have flown under the radar.  Not to invoke DefCon 5 or anything.  :)  I know a lot of people prefer 7-zip especially on DC so I mentioned it.  :)

I just checked and I was still on v9.x. I guess it's been a while since I updated it. :)
