This is a small update to RAR Expander which upgrades the unrar core to the latest version (v3.60). The previous betas of v0.8.5 used beta versions of this latest unrar core. As the unrar core is now considered stable, this is probably the last beta of v0.8.5 and a stable version will be released in the coming days.
An updated beta of RAR Expander 0.8.5 has been released, it features a few small changes to the previous beta.
Version v0.8.4 should fix a critical crash that occurred on Intel-based Macs when expanding password-protected or malformed multi-part archives.
A new beta version of RAR Expander has been made available as well.
Check the RAR Expander website for more information!
Users who beta tested RAR Expander on their new Intel-based macs have confirmed it is working as expected! Thus a new stable release of RAR Expander is now available which is compiled as a Universal Binary and should therefore run faster on Intel-based macs than the previous version of RAR Expander. Thanks Christoph, Randall and Nick!
Due to time constraints no new news items were posted in the RAR Expander news feed since version 0.7, but probably most of you using the application noticed the release of version 0.8 through RAR Expander's auto version update check. The release of today, v0.8.2, is only a small update for users of PowerPC-based Macs, but for those who already have an Intel-based Mac the also newly released beta is a first chance to test a Universal Binary version of RAR Expander that should run faster than the existing releases of RAR Expander on these macs. One big warning though: this beta is really a beta, or should I say alpha release, as I have not been able to test it on an Intel-based mac. If any users with an Intel-based Mac wish to help me in this, please download and try the beta, but please keep the usual warnings for beta software in mind!!
A new version of RAR Expander has been released, functionality-wise it is completely the same as the previous 0.6 release, but I wanted to show off the very nice new icon! Credit and many thanks for designing the new icon goes to Amir Alam! I would also like to thank Brenn Hill for offering to help as well, and Shane Hollis for his draft designs!
RAR Expander v0.6 released. This version features greatly improved expansion speed, AppleScript support and comes with two example scripts to help you expand several RAR archives at once.
Information about new releases for RAR Expander will now also be posted on the project's news section and made available via RSS!
