WinRAR - What's new in the latest version

Version 6.21

1. Both file and folder modification timestamps are restored when unpacking TAR and TAR based archives like tar.gz and tar.bz2.
Previously only file modification timestamps were set for these archive formats.

2. Added decompression of .tar.zst archives with dictionary exceeding 128 MB. WinRAR 6.20 allowed such dictionary for .zst, but not for .tar.zst.

3. Switches -ed and -e+d are also supported by ZIP archives. Previously they worked only for RAR archives.

4. Bugs fixed:
  • a) if unencrypted file was stored after encrypted in the same RAR archive and both files had been unpacked in the same extraction command, WinRAR 6.20 failed to unpack the unencrypted file;
  • b) in some cases a wrong detailed reason of file open error could be displayed in the second line of open error message.
