Berlin, February 27th 2024: RARLAB.COM and win.rar GmbH proudly announce the release of WinRAR 7.00, marking a significant upgrade that sets new standards in file compression, security measures, and ease of use. This latest version introduces innovative features and enhancements, solidifying WinRAR's position as the leading software solution for users' archiving and compression needs.

Enhanced Compression Capabilities

WinRAR 7.00 expands the boundaries of compression technology by supporting dictionary sizes of up to 64 GB, allowing for unprecedented compression ratios and flexibility. This major upgrade caters to the growing demand for efficient handling of large files and datasets, offering users the ability to select non-standard dictionary sizes for optimized performance.

Advanced Search Algorithms

The introduction of new search algorithms, including "Long Range Search" and "Exhaustive Search," enables WinRAR to locate longer and more distant repeated data blocks, significantly enhancing the compression of large and similar files. These sophisticated algorithms are designed to improve compression ratios and reduce archive sizes, ensuring faster sharing and reduced storage costs.

Increased Path Length Limit

With the path length limit now extended to 65,535 characters, WinRAR 7.00 addresses a common challenge faced by users, allowing for the seamless management of files within complex directory structures. This enhancement ensures greater flexibility and ease of use in handling deeply nested files and directories.

Security and Compatibility Improvements

WinRAR 7.00 introduces the "Propagate Mark of the Web" option, providing users with advanced control over security zone information for extracted files. Additionally, the removal of support for creating archives in the older RAR 4.x format aligns with modern security and compatibility standards.

User Interface and Settings Enhancements

The new version boasts a user-friendly interface with features like a word wrap toggle in the archive comment window and an "Attributes" column, enhancing the overall user experience. Customization options, such as dictionary size adjustments, further personalize WinRAR according to individual user preferences.

Benchmarking Improvements

WinRAR 7.00 enhances its benchmarking tool, allowing users to specify the number of threads and easily copy results to the clipboard. This update provides valuable insights into WinRAR's performance on different hardware setups, allowing for further optimization and efficiency.

Miscellaneous Enhancements and Fixes

Among other improvements and bug fixes, the latest update fixes a critical flaw that allowed unauthorized MOTW overwrites in extracted archived files. Thanks to Orange Tsai and NiNi of DEVCORE, alongside Trend Micro Zero Day Initiative, for their responsible disclosure. Notably, unlike WinRAR, unrar.dll is not impacted by this issue.
