    Thanks, but I think the changelog is longer if you're updating from stable.

    What's with this huge version jump anyhow?

    Nice! Full changelog:

    I believe the version number changed to year.month

    2009 being the year beta started and about 18 or so months since then.

    Yes, main developer of 7-zip decided to get back to year.mouths/revision numbering again, so he jumped from 4.x to 9.x. (source)

    It's nice to see v. 9.x coming out of beta finally. Thanks for the heads up.

    Should I uninstall my old version of 7 zip first or can I install this over the top?
