Don't use this alpha version for important data. Call "Test" command after each compressing operation.
- Speed optimizations for LZMA, Deflate, BZip2 and unRAR.
- Some changes in error messages.
- Some bugs were fixed.
- New localizations: Bangla, Bashkir, Nepali.
Details about speed optimizations:
- LZMA in multithreading mode for dual-core CPUs
- BZip2 compressing and decompressing
- Deflate in Max and Ultra modes
- UnRAR code was rewritten. And it must work faster now.
Please check 7-Zip 4.44 for largest data sets (more than 2-4 GB) in solid / ultra mode. Call "Test" command after each compressing operation. Check also 64-bit version of 7z / LZMA for largest data sets more accurately, since MSVC 64-bit compiler has some bugs.
