Category: Main Utilities Compression WinRAR 5.x/6.x/7.x


Version 6 doesn't bring any new radically new features and was seemingly released because Eugene Roshal didn't want to have version 5.10.

Version 7 brings in slightly better compression and dictionary support for up to 64GB (given enough RAM) for the x64 version of the program.
