Version History of WinZip 6.2
- WinZip now lets you open and extract UUencoded, XXencoded, BinHex, and MIME files (base64, plain/text, and quoted-printable). These files can be opened via the File/Open dialog or via drag and drop. The Actions->UUencode menu entry makes it easy to encode archives. The new Favorites toolbar button and the File->Favorite Zip Folders menu entry list all Zip files in your favorite folders by date for easy access. WinZip now includes built-in support for the industry standard Zip 2.0 encryption format.
- WinZip Self-Extractor Personal Edition is now included with WinZip.
- There are miscellaneous minor changes, for example, the Options->Password dialog box now has a "mask" option; if you open an executable file that is recognized format, WinZip now offers to run the file, and if you double click on a SETUP program in an archive, WinZip acts as though you clicked the "Install" toolbar button. A new large toolbar is available if your video configuration supports more than 256 colors.
- This version also fixes a few problems, including: Explorer context menus were not shown in many Windows NT 4.0 configurations; WinZip was improperly disabling the "Multiple Disk Spanning" combo box under certain circumstances; and the message "Caution: your specified Multiple Disk Spanning option will remove all files on target drive. Continue?" is now displayed when using the disk spanning add-on, just as it is when the add-on is not used. The default spanning option is now always set to "No Spanning" when a Zip is opened.
