RAR - What's new in the latest version

Version 5.21

1. While previous versions could produce RAR5 volumes of slightly
smaller than requested size sometimes, such situation is less
likely now. In most cases volume size equals to specified by user.

2. Now by default RAR skips symbolic links with absolute paths
in link target when extracting. You can enable creating such links
with -ola switch.

Such links pointing to directories outside of extraction destination
directory can present a security risk. Enable their extraction only
if you are sure that archive contents is safe, such as your own backup.
