7-Zip is a popular open source file archiver for Windows, Mac and Linux systems. A new version, 7-Zip 22.00 is now available; it is the first stable release in 2022. The last release dates back to December 2021, when 7-Zip 21.07 was released.

7-zip 22.00

7-Zip users may download the latest version of the application from the official website. Downloads for 64-bit, 32-bit and ARM versions of Windows are supported. The program is still compatible with out-of-support versions of Windows, including Windows XP and Vista. All officially supported versions of Windows, including server versions, are supported as well.

7-Zip 22.00 for Linux is available for download already, while the Mac OS version is not yet available.

7-Zip 22.00 final

7-Zip 22.00 brings along with it several new features that extend the functionality of the application. The new version of the archiver supports the extraction of Apple File System APFS images. Apple introduced the Apple File System in Mac OS 10.13 and on iOS several years ago. The file system is optimized for flash and solid state drive storage solutions.

TAR archive support has seen several improvements in 7-Zip 22.00. 7-Zip can create TAR archives in POSIX tar format using the switches -ttar -mm=pax or -ttar -mm=posix now. Additionally, 7-Zip may store file timestamps with high precision in tar/pax archives using the switches ttar -mm=pax -mtp=3 -mtc -mta.

Last but not least, Linux users may use the following two new switches with TAR archives:

  • -snoi : store owner/group ids in archive or set owner/group ids from archive to extracted files.
  • -snon : store owner/group names in archive

On Windows, 7-Zip 22.00 adds support for the -snz switch, which propagates the Zone.Identifier stream to extract files. The stream is used by Windows for security purposes; it may be used to determine whether a file has been created locally or been downloaded from the Internet.

7-zip propagate zone identifier

The preference is also available in the graphical user interface. Open 7-Zip and go to Tools > Options. Switch to the 7-Zip tab in the options window, and set the preference "Propagate Zone.Id stream to one of the following values:

  • No -- default. 7-Zip does not propagate Zone.Identifier streams.
  • Yes -- 7-Zip propagates Zone.Identifier streams for all jobs.
  • For Office files -- 7-Zip propagates Zone.Identifier streams for Office files only.

timestamp options

7-Zip 22.00 includes a new options window in the "add to archive" configuration dialog. It includes options to change the timestamp precision, change other time related configuration options, and block the changing of the last access time of the source files.

You may check out the full changelog on Sourceforge.

Now You: do you use 7-Zip or another file archiver?

    I love auto-playing videos. It saves me a thousand clicks a day.

      And probably costs your a good amount of data, if you don’t have a good plan. Better would be an opt-in than opt-out.

    I hate auto-playing videos. Never click on them. Never watch them. Just one more manic marketing/advertising ploy that is rampant on the internet, to grab your attention intrusively, greedily, and glaringly obnoxiously. Second worst is those stupid timed pop-ups to get you to sign-up for something. No wonder so many people have screwed up attention spans.

    Telegram is introducing Telepathic Videos, they play in your head and can’t be stopped unless you turn off the app, put the device in your freezer (no signal, batteries die quickly) then go outside into reality. Scary proposition but definitely worth trying.

    Unfortunately there’s still no way to stop an autoplaying video once you’ve started it. So you get to choose; either don’t watch it at all… or watch it looping for all eternity.

    More great UI design from your friendly neighbourhood Telegram devs. The people who brought you “no scrollbars on OSX” and “allowing other people to remotely delete data on your devices”

      Not true, at least not on my Telegram desktop PC setup; I started playing a video that I couldn’t find a way to stop playing in a loop over and over again, which led me to find this article.

      I followed the article’s instructions and toggled off the autoplay for videos and GIFs for all three categories, Private, Group and Channel, and once I did that and saved the settings the previously perma-looping video stopped and the UI was replaced with a blank window and a ‘Play’ symbol.

    Hmm, on the website it states: “There’s no shady stuff as 100% of the website is open source.” No, it required some scripts for the basic website to even load… It can be classified as untrustworthy and poor quality design.

    Martin, where do you predict this post will be sent today, will it reach the correct thread or be redirected to some random thread on AI, Social media fads, or be tapped onto a long debate on browser bug comments. Your visitor comments database is kaput! :-/

      Martin, the [#comment-4572556] post did weirdly redirect to: [https://www.ghacks.net/2023/08/14/is-beeper-safe/] and now it seems to be back in the correct “.sexy” thread. Maybe it’s a homing pigeon.

      However, the last (currently) visible response to the “Wi-Fi” thread, instead nested in the “beeper” one. It also looks like the other posts people made in that “wireless” thread, migrated south and flew into others threads. It’s like Russian roulette with replies trying to reach the right destination nowadays – around here.

    privacy.sexy may not be a great resource – for example, one of the scripts in the ‘configure programs’ scripts for Firefox enables ‘privacy.firstparty.isolate’ – FPI is obsolete and has been replaced with dFPI which can be enabled in ‘preferences > privacy & security > enhanced tracking protection’ by selecting the ‘strict’ option

    another script disables WebRTC to prevent IP leakage (VPN, etc.) – this is apparently no longer necessary (see ‘[SECTION 2000]’ of the arkenfox js)

    I have reached out to Martin personally and to his credit he replied very quickly. He has informed me that they are aware of the problems and are attempting to fix it.

    Martin is no longer involved in the technical management of the site so I imagine if we want to ask someone then our comments would perhaps be better directed towards Softonic.

    PORTMASTER

    I stopped using this because it doesn’t prevent DNSAPI.dll from allowing the PC to make sneaky connections to Micro$oft. I put my Acrylic M$ blocklist into the Custom Filter option but it Micro$oft URLs would still bypass it (and of course the regular Hosts file).

    Back to Acryllic and Tinywall! Most people don’t care about M$ spying on them, but some of us still do. So even though Portmaster ‘owns’ port 52, it still let’s DNSAPI.dll over-ride one’s privacy options.

    Oh, the irony!

    Disheartening news for me, as I really rely on SUMO for the updates for the last 5 years or so.

    Others I tried–even ones with big brand names–are junks compared to how extensive and useful SUMO’s features are.

    Anyone can recommend a list of 2-3 softwares at par with SUMO? Thank you.

    I purchased a lifetime license of Sumo in 2018 and I was very satisfied with this program.
    There are not many alternatives and those that exist are not as effective.
    See alternatives here : https://alternativeto.net/software/sumo/
    Secunia was also abandoned some time ago.

    Odd . . . many of their programs were updated within 2023:

    I haven’t used any of their products, but I have a bookmark to the site. Chances are good that Major Geeks will archive all the products, a sort of repository for KC Software.

    Sad news indeed. Been using SUMo for a long time.

    As mentioned, an article about alternatives would be welcome.

    Kaspersky will be happy, they’ve been flagging SUMo as “incompatible software” for years, only because it competes with their KIS’s Software Updater junk. No “Ignore” option for their blatant anti-competitive deceit. Of course.

    What’s with all the old unrelated posts crap? @Martin Brinkmann can you please get rid of that time-wasting nonsense, it makes reading and finding genuine comments a serious PITA!

    Very sad news indeed.

    Before SUMo I was using WebMon, a free software which was monitoring web sites for changes and it was very good, but the software was discontinued and stopped working correctly on https sites for which it was not programmed.

    I think that I will return to this kind of software, I am actually trying the free version of “WebSite-Watcher” which is a shareware, and I’ll try to find some other softwares of this kind.

    Actually this is the only kind of software which would be able to “find” new versions for installed softwares but also for portable softwares.

      >Before SUMo I was using WebMon, a free software which was monitoring web sites for changes and it was very good, but the software was discontinued and stopped working correctly on https sites for which it was not programmed.

      There is modern recreation of WebMon, which support https (and a number of other additional features), called WebChangeMonitor:
      https://sourceforge.net/projects/webchangemon/

      Also, in addition, I can recommend a somewhat similar program Ketarin (HP: ketarin org) – it has not been updated for quite a while (but not as long as WebMon), but is fully functional. Its plus is that it can also download files (in fact, this is its main function – after detecting changes, like WebMon, download a given updated file). Everything must be configured manually, as in WebMon, so as an alternative to SUMO may not be for everyone, but for someone who used WebMon – very much so.

    I prefer alert of new versions rather than manual updating so the installer/portable app can be scanned via VirusTotal before installation. SUMO gave the alert and a right-click option to open the app folder, which was all I ever used.

    Wingetui is an alternative to SUMO but it is not as comprehensive. It misses seeing some of my software. The article above mentions ‘several good alternatives’. Alternativeto lists a lot but lacks https://alternativeto.net/software/sumo/ but does not give thorough reviews.

    Has anyone experience with the free version of IObit Software Updater?

    (Yes I know that IO does everything to overwhelm your PC, and Malwarebytes is still very angry/aggressive towards IO, but they have some very good (free) programs, and you can rely on that they are not one-man-projects).

      I have tried it. It sneaky installs a brunch of other programs which causes an almost uncontrollable chaos. So not advisable (through the updater program itself seems to be very functional).

    Ketarin (https://ketarin.org/index.php) looks interesting and I just downloaded this morning to start tinkering. It takes a bit of work to configure each piece of software. When first run it downloads the software on each link. Subsequently, it downloads new versions. It is portable, so you could load it plus downloads onto a USB stick and use it to install the same apps on different (compatible) computers.

    The new version (10) of uCheck now allows mentioning custom locations.

    I asked their support if this option is reserved for the paid version.

      Their answer:
      “Hi,
      Thanks for your message.
      Yes it should be scanned in the Free version as well. However, it’s just client capability for now.
      We are in the process of adding portable links in our database right now, so it’s normal if there’s very few (or not) software found in these locations.”

    Sad, SUMP was by far the best program for finding the latest updates, even for obscure apps. Would like to see them open source their entire line up, so someone else can take up the torch! Would be sad to see it go down to no good end! Thank you SUMO for all the good work you’ve done for the public good!

    Just used SUMo, Patch My PC, and winget.
    SUMo found 9 major, and 16 minor updates
    Patch My PC found 8 updates
    winget found 11

    False negatives: determines there was no update, when in fact there is an update

    False positive: determines there is an update, when in fact there is no update

    winget has a lot of issues.
    False negative: it didn’t list updates for Chrome, and Thunderbird
    Also had one false positive, i.e., there was an update when in fact it doesn’t exist.

    The Microsoft C++ Redistributable updates leave old ones behind, so winget reports then out of date.

    There was a false positive for Patch My PC.

    SUMo is the most comprehensive and accurate of the three products tested.
    I did not find any false positives or false negatives.

    I originally used Secunia to check for updates until is was discontinued.

    Just ran SUMo, Patch My PC, and winget.

    Both SUMo and Patch My PC found an update for LibreOffice, but the winget upgrade command missed it.

    The winget list command shows LibreOffice, but no update.
