1. drag and drop the "files" right into thunar
2. if you hit the extract button you should have a
history button (drop-down menu and you can see your
previous used folders)
3. a real progress bar instead of the little thing
4. par/par2 support

    Thank you for your counsel. I will keep them in mind while
    developing the future releases anyway:

    1) DnD works in Thunar works.
    3) What do you mean for a real progress bar?
    4) please give info about par/par2.

    Thanks,
    Giuseppe Torelli

    With real progress bar I mean I would like a bar, which
    shows progress (1% 2% 3% ... ) and not just a bouncing bar
    that shows activity.
    Par/Par2 would be just another supported format. With three
    functions. a) creating par/par2 files b) verify par/par2
    files and c) repair par/par2 files.

    This is not possible at all since the real work is done by
    the zip executable and not inside Xarchiver. The zip
    executable doesn't provide a percentage AFAIK. If you know
    have to do this i will be welcome to implement it in Xarchiver.

    Ok. I will see what I can do; in the meantime can you help
    me to do that? It is quite simple to add a new type to
    Xarchiver.

    Bye,

    I understand the ZiP issue, but what about rar for example.
    Let's assume you have 10 Files in a rar archive.
    rar, r01, r02, ... r09

    You could create a progress bar that advances after every
    file. Does that make sense?

    That's is the problem I don't know when the rar executable
    advances to the next file in the archive and consequently I
    can't know when to advance the GTK progress bar. One
    solution could be to run several rar instances according to
    the number of files contained in the archive: 10 files, 10
    instances of run are issued but this is not a good style.

    There must be a way since WinRAR/rarsoft has a progress bar.
    Also if you run unrar in your terminal you can see everytime
    unrar jumps to the next file.

    Здравствуйте! (Hello!)
    Спасибо за Xarchiver.

    Хотелось бы видеть в следующих релизах функцию тестирования архивов (need command "Test Archive" or command "Verify Archive") для ZIP, RAR, ARJ, etc..

    Спасибо.
