Help file to come as well as SVN

ablecode is currently working on the help file in English. As soon as it is complete, it'll be translated to Polish. If anyone would like to see the GUI in their native language, work out the translation, and we'll post it. We plan to start using Subversion to manage the source code. We'll get that set up as soon as possible.

As a Linux user, I frequently run across files compressed in the bzip format. Opening these under Linux is trivial. However, opening bzip files under Windows can prove difficult. A number of Windows users I know use WinZip to uncompress files. WinZip is fine for files in gzip, zip, or tar format, but it does not open bzip files. There are command line utilities to open bzip files, but I have found most Windows users stay away from the command line. The goal of this project is to develop a GUI interface to the bzip program available at I know there are other free compression programs that provide bzip support, but a user is more likely to use an add on program than to install another large program that provides overlapping functionally.... read more
