    Igor, do you plan to support/improve such new compression algorithm and WIM format in 7-zip?

    As you can read in wimlib 1.6.0 documentation (--> https://sourceforge.net/projects/wimlib/ ), latest DISM tool from Microsoft can export images from old WIMs with /compress:recovery and pack them with this new format, which supports: 1) solid blocks; 2) new LZMS compression algorithm (similar to LZMA).
