21.02.2018 Lhx V0.83.0 alpha released
Lhx is a file compression utility that uses Lha and the XZ/LZMA2 compression method and compresses files into an AmigaOS-compatible Lhx archive. All AmigaOS file system protection bits and possible comments are preserved.
XZ/LZMA2 is the same compression method used with 7-Zip.
The file compression program created by Marko K. Seppänen, Lasse Collin and Igor Pavlov is still alpha status and therefore without any guarantee of use.
Changes in this version:
- Implemented so only correct type of files can be extracted, through checks
of file-headers (Magic Headers), and not solely of file extensions.
- Fixed a few other issues regarding filetypes/fileheaders.
- When extracting, the destination dir is checked that it really is a
directory and not a regular file.
- Fixed its own directory for documentation in AutoInstall.
- Clarified and fixed typos in help/documentation.
- Among other things.
