PeaZip allows to apply powerful multiple search filters to archive’s content; create and extract multiple archives at once; create self-extracting archives; export job definition as command line; save archive’s layouts; use custom compressors and extractors, bookmark archives and folders; scan and open with custom applications compressed and uncompressed files etc…
Other features: strong encryption, robust file copy, split/join files (file span), secure data deletion, compare, checksum and hash files, system benchmark, generate random passwords and keyfiles.

Added option to automatically open tar archive inside tar.* compressed files
Option is on by default, can be set in Options > Settings > Archive manager
Drag & drop can now be hot swapped between standard and custom mode while using the application
Improved finding duplicate files, both with crc/hash and quick duplicate check: Info column shows “D” for duplicate for each copy of file with same digest value, except the last copy found
Sorting files for Info column allows to quickly select (and delete) duplicate items
Sorting files for checksum/hash column allows to easily compare identical files as in previous versions
New function to analyze content of folders in file browser (from column header menu)
Info column marks empty folders with “E”
Checksum/hash column shows content of folders: number of directories, number of files, and total size
New scaling mechanism for better support of high DPI in PeaZip and Pea executables
UI elements are scaled at run time at discrete steps zooming up to 10x of design time size, using Lazaruz LCL scaling
Graphic is accordingly scaled at run time, accepting arbitrarily sized graphic sources
Embedded 16 and 32 pixel icons are currently provided with 3x definition (48 and 96 pixel respectively) to provide high quality graphic up to 300% scaling
New themes for PeaZip version 7+ uses 8 or 32 bit PNG with transparency, and currently provides 16 and 32 pixel icons upscaled to 3x definition
New Windows icons for menus and file types; new icons allows to better distinguish supported file types, at large and small resolutions
When a single file of unsupported format is passed as parameter, the application lets the user decide if to try to open it as archive or to add it to new archive
Fixed System benchmark tool
EXTRACTION and ARCHIVING
Improved progress bar accuracy
Option to delete input files after task completion is now globally applied to all archiving / extraction functions
Also batch version of direct archiving / extraction functions now apply the deletion on completion policy accordingly to the application’s configuration
Alternative versions of batch commands are now available in order to explicitly ignore deletion on completion policy, with “i” appended after function name: -add2peai, -add2crypti, -add27zi, -add27zmaili, -add2separate7zi, -add2sfx7zi, -add2sfx7zmaili, -add2zipi, -add2zipmaili, -add2separatezipi, and -ext2herei, -ext2folderi, -ext2toi, ext2tofolderi, -ext2simplei, -ext2simplefolderi
Fixed and improved -add2split batch command, can now accept multiple input files and folders (if more than one file is passed as input it will be consolidated in a tar archive)
WINDOWS & LINUX INSTALLERS
Improved Windows 32 and 64 bit installers
Added shortcuts to selectively start PeaZip in add, extract or open mode
Shortcuts are saved in application’s entry in Start Menu, and in program’s path, and can be freely moved/copied for ease of use
By default now the installer associate files and create menu entries for all users (local machine)
New “Install for current user only” checkbox, unchecked by default, to run the installer for current user only
Various fixes and removal of legacy code
PeaZip 7.5.0 release notes:
PeaZip 7.5 introduces new icons to better distinguish main archive types, and brings several improvements for archive management.
New features: extract everything in the archive (or in current path, or search filter) to correctly preview special file types (i.e. executables, html files, multi volume spanned archives), create new folders in existing archives, and option to auto close PeaZip after extraction if no browsing took place – useful in example to quickly preview a downloaded file and having the application to auto close right after extraction.
ZIP and 7Z default compression levels are now set to fast and runs over 4x faster than at normal compression level, with minor impact on compression ratio. This is only meant to offer speed/compression trade-off more fit to general purpose use, compression levels and compression presets works as usual, only the initial default is changed.
