Idea for forumn



  • it would be good if we could have a section for new format requests so we can have more formats avlaibale as plugins at a later date



  • Yes, even if it only stops/reduces the repetitions in “General / Wishlist / Tech Support”. :rolleyes:
    spwolf could even monitor and control - One post/thread per format :o



  • more formats are not always better 😉



  • thats true but more plugins for formats gives people the chance to decide on what formats thety want and need and stops pa being bloated or not usefull to some people



  • currently there is a high compression format (7zip) and the most used formats ZIP, RAR ACE and CAB. With this formats you can open more than 95% of all archives in the internet.



  • The benefit of a new section would be that people can visit a “dedicated area”, then see that their format has already been asked for. Maybe even the “standard reply” - it is a closed license and cannot be added.

    davidsplash can also put his plugin request there as well.

    This would help to keep other forum sections “clean”.



  • just have a look at the skins forum, I think the feedback for a new forum would be the same as in the skins forum


  • conexware

    if we ever implement plugin support, you will get forum where you can discuss different options/formats. As it is, I doubt we will be adding any experimental format in PowerArchiver by default and I dont see anything on the market that is close to the development of 7zip.

    thanks,

    Then you should open your eyes and take a look at SQX. 😉

    Sorry, but I think you have missed the point.
    The suggestion is for a new WishList type forum dedicated to the topic of adding new compression formats and plug-in type adaption.
    Like wishlist, ther is no commitment by conexware beyond “general” forum maintenance.
    Deleting or closing duplicates/Moving posts fromother fora etc.
