RAR - What's new in the latest version

Version 5.20 beta 4

1. No bugs were corrected in Unix version. Rebuilt to test general
code changes.

Version 5.20 beta 1

1. RAR can read the default set of switches from .rarrc file stored
in the user's home directory. Previously it was possible to
define only the same set of switches for all RAR command with
"switches=" string. Now .rarrc also allows to specify
separate switch sets for individual RAR commands using
the following syntax:


For example:

switches_a=-m5 -s

2. File overwrite prompt displays the size and modification time
for existing and new files.

3. When archiving from stdin with -si switch, RAR sets the current system
time to modification time of archived file. Previous version did not
set this time at all.

4. It is possible to use -si and -v switches together. Previous
versions did not allow to create volumes when archiving from stdin.
