Changes in version 5.1, b2
a) when processing nested archives, WinRAR could attempt to open inner archive as self-extracting instead of opening an outer archive. It happened if inner archive was stored without compression and outer archive name had non-standard extension;
b) Unix RAR could not decompress hard links stored by WinRAR if link source name included path separator characters.
|2.||Added extraction support for ZIP and ZIPX archives using BZIP2, LZMA and PPMd compression.|
|3.||Added extraction support for 7z split archives (.7z.001, .7z.002, ...)|
|4.||Added support for AES-NI CPU instructions allowing to improve RAR encryption and decryption performance|
|5.||Default theme images are scaled up with better quality in high DPI display mode|
|6.||Environment variables can be used in "Files to add" field of archiving dialog|
|7.||Switch -ai can be used when creating RAR archive, so predefined values, typical for file and folder, are stored instead of actual attributes.
Previously this switch could be used only when extracting.
