I believe it is time that a 64bit version of this 7zip port. It also needs to have a GUI with advanced options when creating new archives. In other words similar to what is available in 64bit MS Windows.
Why?
- Large dictionary sizes of several GiB!
- Increasingly everyday, people are making the switch to 64bit LINUX (ubuntu 64bit uptake is strong). We need an idiot proof GUI with advanced options just like MS Windows 7zip GUI.
- Multi-threading as well needs to be easy to configure just like MS Windows 7zip.

    p7zip is already a 64bit version For a 64bit OS.

    For example, Ubuntu amd_x64 provides a 64bit version of p7zip.

    The sources of p7zip already provides "7zG" but I don't know if a Linux distribution provides it.

    "7zG" is the program launched when you select "Add to 7z" or "Extract Here" in a Microsoft Windows Explorer.

    You can add "7zG" in the context menu of konqueror or dolphin ...

    For a GUI, you can try PeaZip, but for example, Ubuntu does not provide it ...

    You can also try :
    - the default KDE archive handler : Ark
    - the default GNOME archive handler : File Roller
