7-Zip 15.10 beta was released.

http://sourceforge.net/p/sevenzip/discu ... /790f9526/
What's new after 7-Zip 15.09 beta:
  • The BUG in 9.21 - 15.09 was fixed:
    7-Zip could ignore some parameters, specified for archive creation operation
    for gzip and bzip2 formats in "Add to Archive" window and in command line
    version (-m switch).
    Some bugs were fixed.

Everyone should update to v16 as soon as possible.

There's an exploit in older versions:

is it stealth? ;)

We've updated all PortableApps.com packages that utilize 7-Zip. If you use the PA.c Platform and have automatic updates on, you're all set. If you don't, you'll need to update 7-Zip Portable, PeaZip Portable, PA.c AppCompactor, PA.c Installer, and the PortableApps.com Platform itself (it uses 7-Zip for its backup/restore functionality).

  • The bug was fixed: 7-Zip 16.03 exe installer under Vista didn't create links in Start / Programs menu.
  • Some bugs were fixed in RAR code.
hi
thanks!
that's it ? i guess 16.x is buggy , some programs like YUMI & Universal USB Installer stopped to use the last version and go back to use 9.20

can i extract the right files and use the portable version provided by portableapps.com ?
and it's there a way to customize the shell integration icons?

thanks again

If you want to go back to 7-Zip Portable 9.20, you can download it from https://sourceforge.net/projects/portab ... e/download.

From the entry comments:
Special wrote:use 7-Zip for your compression needs, but for encrypting sensitive stuff you plan on uploading onto the web, look elsewhere
I did some digging and couldn't find any data on 7zip weaknesses. Could you list a source?
