WinRAR has a skinnable interface and support for Zip64 and multi-volume cab files. The relatively small jump in version number indicates that this version has only minor changes and improvements.

Now by default WinRAR skips symbolic links with absolute paths in linktarget When extracting. You can enable creating Such links with “Allow absolute paths in symbolic links” option on the “Advanced” page of extraction dialog or with -ola command line switch.
Such links pointing to directories outside of extraction destination folder can present a security risk. Enable Their extraction Only if you are surethat archive contents is safe, zoals your own backup.
Bugs fixed:
If several at files from different folders were selected and extracted using “Flat folders view” the file list mode and “Extract relative paths” option extraction, WinRAR Could truncate paths or some thesis or files. It did not bite if filelist entire contents or a single file was selected.
