ZipGenius X Development Diary – part 6: the command line module.

  ZipGenius X Development Log Diary – part 6: the command line module. </h1 > When we don't post anything for a long time, there is always somebody that ask if we are still active. Let's make it clear: if we spend our time writing blog posts, we cannot do development progress; therefore, if we don't write for a long time that means we're busy developing something for you. In a past blog post we wrote about the command line module which has always been a fundamental part of Z...

ZipGenius Development Log – ep. 4

  ZipGenius Development Log – ep. 4 </h1 > Here is another update about ZipGenius X development. This time will focus on archive loading times and we've made ready a video for you on our YouTube Channel.

ZipGenius X, a first preview

Well, Microsoft has a new way to show custom entries in File Explorer's context menu and entries added by older applications were moved in a sub-menu called "Show more options...". We won't update that because ZipGenius 6 development ended some time ago in favor of ZipGenius X - wh...
