Version History of WinRAR 4.01 (Beta 1)
- Added support for file sizes stored in binary format in TAR archives. Some TAR archives use the binary size format instead of octal for files larger than 8 GB.
- "Repair" command failed to properly reconstruct structure of RAR archives, which contained at least one file with packed size exceeding 4 GB.
- This bug did not affect the recovery record based repair. It happened only if recovery record was not found and WinRAR performed reconstruction of archive structure;
- even if "Do not extract paths" option in "Advanced" part of extraction dialog was set as the default, WinRAR still unpacked file paths if called from Explorer context menu;
- after entering a wrong password for encrypted ZIP archive, sometimes WinRAR ignored subsequent attempts to enter a valid password;
- "Wizard" command did not allow to create self-extracting and multivolume archives, when compressing a single folder or a file without extension;
- "Import settings from file" command did not restore multiline comments in WinRAR compression profiles;
- When converting RAR volumes having name1.name2.part#.rar name format, "Convert archives" command erroneously removed ".name2" name part. So resulting archive had name1.rar file name instead of expected name1.name2.rar;
- RAR could crash when creating a new archive with -agNNN switch if archive number in generated name was 110 or larger.
