WinRAR 4.01 Beta 1

What’s new in WinRAR 4.01 Beta 1:

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.

2. Bugs fixed:

a) “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;

b) 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;

c) after entering a wrong password for encrypted ZIP archive,
sometimes WinRAR ignored subsequent attempts to enter a valid
password;

d) “Wizard” command did not allow to create self-extracting
and multivolume archives, when compressing a single folder
or a file without extension;

e) “Import settings from file” command did not restore multiline
comments in WinRAR compression profiles;

f) 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;

g) RAR could crash when creating a new archive with -agNNN switch
if archive number in generated name was 110 or larger.
