# Added support for ZIP archives containing Unicode file names in UTF-8 format. When creating ZIP archive, WinRAR stores names in Unicode only if they
cannot be stored correctly using the current single byte character set.
# Added decompression support for WinZip AES encrypted ZIP archives.
# Improved Unicode support for RAR and ZIP archive names.
# “Ask before overwrite” and “Skip existing files” update modes are now available in archiving dialog. They allow to specify WinRAR behavior when
updating already existing files in archive. Unlike already available “Fresh existing files only” and “Add and update files”, these new modes ignore file
date and compare only file names.
# New “Add to context menu” option in “Profile parameters” dialog. If this option is on, the profile name will be displayed in Explorer context menus
allowing to activate a profile from context menu.
# New -cp switch allows to select a compression profile in command line mode. It is supported only by GUI WinRAR.exe, not by rar.exe.
