I saw in another post that using 7z instead of zip is unsafe. Is this still the case? or is 7z now safe to use? I would like to switch to using it doesn’t have any issues.
7z results in a much smaller archive, and more importantly, can be multi-threaded (which zip can not).
Additionally, is there any plans to introduce more common archive formats (for unix sytems) like gz and bz2 (both of which can also be multi-threaded and are VERY efficient and should be very well supported across platforms).
BTW, right now, I’m using the beta release channel, is multi-threading only available on the canary tree? And is there going to be an update TO the canary or beta tree (the last release for both is in April, and looking at the git repository, there have been patches that fix issues since then).
