WinZip 9.0

xPerhaps the most popular utility in history, WinZip is now up to version 9.0. The latest release has useful features for the business environment like 128 and 256-bit encryption. Files can now be encrypted after being placed in a zip file. In earlier versions of the software, files would have to be encrypted during compression. The added security is great for the medical vertical.

WinZip now supports TAR and CAB files, which is useful for technical users. The TAR compressed-file format is popular for Linux distributions and the CAB format is often used for Windows software.

In the past, there could be no more than 65,535 files in a zip file. The member files and the zip file itself could also not be more than 4 Gigabytes in size. Those artificial limits on file size or the number of files in a zip file no longer exist, which is good news for graphics houses.
