Changes in PowerArchiver 2017:
- Optimized Strong mode: Very strong compression to .pa format, with special codecs for pdf/docx files, exe/dll files, jpeg files, text/html files and many more. It provides for best overall compression currently available in professional compression software. Compared to WinZIP (zipx), it is several times faster while providing for better compression.
- Optimized Fast mode: Optimized for speed and includes the super fast base codec as well as data deduplication and exe/dll filters. This combination of codecs and filters is much faster than zip while also creating smaller files.
- 64bit version: Advanced Codec Pack can use maximum ram and cpu from your system, which lead us to creating a native 64bit version of PowerArchiver. It is now recommended to always use the 64bit version of PowerArchiver to get the maximum performance from .pa format.
- Dual panel explorer mode: Dual explorer panels for easier file management.
- Faster ZIP/ZIPX engine: by many benchmarks, our ZIP/ZIPX engine was already the fastest. Now it is even faster!
- Multithreaded 7zip engine: up to 8x faster than before, along with additional improvements for 7zip support.
- Portable version: Fully supported portable version for USB drives! Both 32bit and x64 bit!
- Improved interface: Streamlined options, faster start time, better support for skins, beautiful looking.
- PowerArchiver for Office: Microsoft Office add-ins now support Microsoft Word and Microsoft Excel as well as additional features in Microsoft Outlook
