Release Notes: A bug in the LZX decompressor was fixed. Cabextract is now more tolerant when processing cabinet sets, and will no longer print "library not compiled to support large files" while reading small files.
Release Notes: Several bugs in the Quantum and MS-ZIP decompressors have been fixed, including two security issues. The 'fix' option can now recover more from corrupted files.
Release Notes: A new "test" mode was added that verifies archive integrity and prints MD5 checksums of the archived files. Several bugs in LZX, Quantum, and UTF-8 decoding were fixed. Files greater than two gigabytes can be searched for embedded cabinet files. The software now compiles cleanly on a greater number of platforms.
Release Notes: This release fixes a directory traversal vulnerability. The release also includes improved compatibility with AIX and Cygwin build environments.
Release Notes: The CAB decompression routines have been refactored into a reusable, portable library: libmspack. These routines are now significantly more robust and have been tested on more than three gigabytes of CAB files. The cabextract program now tells you it cannot extract InstallShield CAB files. You can explicitly select which files to extract and which cabinets to extract from. The package includes special support for Windows CE install CABs.
Release Notes: This release supports extracting cabinets using the Quantum compression method. The search algorithm for finding embedded cabinets has been greatly improved. The search for spanning cabinets is now bidirectional and correctly case-insensitive. Extracted files now have the correct date stamp, and honour your umask settings. Files beginning with "\" will no longer be extracted to the root directory. Compilation problems with getopt_long() have been resolved. A Japanese manual page is included.
Release Notes: cabextract now builds correctly on systems which don't have GNU getopt in their standard library. This includes Solaris.
Release Notes: A fix for the new '--fix' option added in 0.3, which broke the MSZIP decompressor. The distribution also builds 'out of the box' on Cygwin.
Release Notes: This release includes fixes for a bug in the LZX decompressor which could corrupt extracted files with no warning. It also adds a number of new features, such as lowercasing filenames, extracting corrupted cabinets, and extracting to a specific directory.
Release Notes: Fixes for a bug in LZX decompressor which could corrupt extracted files with no warning, and other minor bugfixes and feature enhancements.
