    Website
    Download
    What's new after 7-Zip 19.00:
    • 7-Zip now can unpack files encoded with Base64 encoding (b64 filename extension).
    • 7-Zip now can use new x86/x64 hardware instructions for SHA-1 and SHA-256, supported
      by AMD Ryzen and latest Intel CPUs: Ice Lake and Goldmont.
      It increases
      • the speed of SHA-1/SHA-256 hash value calculation,
      • the speed of encryption/decryption in zip AES,
      • the speed of key derivation for encryption/decryption in 7z/zip/rar archives.
    • The speed of zip AES encryption and 7z/zip/rar AES decryption was increased with
      the following improvements:
      • 7-Zip now can use new x86/x64 VAES (AVX Vector AES) instructions, supported by
        Intel Ice Lake CPU.
      • The existing code of x86/x64 AES-NI was improved also.
    • There is 2% speed optimization in 7-Zip benchmark's decompression.
    • Some bugs were fixed.
    The source code of new version and another additional packages will be released later after some testing period.

      following default settings:
      • Fastest level (-mx1) : hc5 match finder with 256 KB dictionary.
      • Fast level (-mx3) : hc5 match finder with 4 MB dictionary.
    • Minor speed optimizations in multithreaded LZMA/LZMA2 compression for Normal/Maximum/Ultra
      compression levels.

    7-Zip v20.01 alpha (August 6, 2020)
    Website
    Announcement
    What's new after 7-Zip 20.00 alpha:
    • The default number of LZMA2 chunks per solid block in 7z archive was increased to 64.
      It allows to increase the compression speed for big 7z archives, if there is a big number
      of CPU cores and threads.
    • The speed of PPMd compressing/decompressing was increased for 7z/ZIP/RAR archives.
    • The new -ssp switch. If the switch -ssp is specified, 7-Zip doesn't allow the system
      to modify "Last Access Time" property of source files for archiving and hashing operations.
    • Some bugs were fixed.
    • New localization: Swahili.

    still running 19.00 because of the "extra" files (used anywhere here by command line) - i wish they would build those for 21.xx.

    Extra can use hidden command line windows (x86 and x64 available). For experimental service I use "7zG.exe" + "7z.dll" (both needed) which offers a dialog and a progress bar - i don't need to program it as for the command line version. Nevertheless, the amount of exit codes is very small, but WinRAR has only twice that much (6 <> 13). But WinRAR is shareware, although it shows no nags in command line mode, and it uses registry while 7zip write nothing. About packaging size both are similar, I prefer 7z with 7zip so the latest stable is fine enough reading the changelog. you are welcome.
