    What is planned beyond Beta 1?
    We plan no major features for Beta 2 and Final version, with exception of improved 7zip engine.

    With Beta 1, we have already improved support for 7zip - updating of non solid archives, better unicode support, better looking and acting dialogues and generally faster speed means that it is one of the best parts of PA 2009.

    Up to the final version, we expect PA 2009 to be the best 7zip GUI on the market. There are actually some surprises coming in that regard so stay tuned!

    OMG, price hike for English version! OMG Pro version is so expensive!

    Inflation sucks. With expansions that we have had this year, and opening of our European office, most of our employees are now in Europe. That means that we are hurt more with low USD value and we had to respond with slight raise in the price of PA 2009 - which we hope we provided enough features to justify. Pricing has actually gone down for customers and small businesses buying 2 or more licenses and gone up for large corporations.

    And you know what? Buuu-f-huu. We dont like inflation and we buy gas, food, juice as everyone else.

    So we decided to offer limited time 15% discount on all PA 2009 preorders, which makes PA 2009 currently cheaper than ever. Not only that, but as part of that offer, all future upgrades are free for everyone, including business companies.

    And for our European friends (hello germany), PowerArchiver is cheaper than ever at 17 Euro with this offer.

    How long will the Beta last?

    We expect it to last for 2-3 weeks. Amount of beta releases depend on number of issues found. We actually tested it really well and we dont expect many issues but you never know.

    So whats the big deal with PA 2009?

    Except that we worked our behinds off, there are many big improvements.

    For standard version (didnt lose any features of course), big things are 7zip, rar/zip speed, interface improvements, preview window (which is pretty cool) and a lot of other things.

    Pro gets Ftp Client window, Burner functions and some more advanced backup features.

    Is PA 2009 bloatware now?
    We asked our alpha testers and they said not! They should know, they have been using it for quite a while. In many ways, PowerArchiver is faster than ever - zip, 7zip and unrar are all faster, especially under Vista. Burner is not only an separate application but it is also pretty lightweight itself and quite usable tool.

    How is PA 2009 distributed?
    Both versions are in the same installer. If you are using trial version, you can try Pro features for 30 days and if you actually register Standard version, all Pro features and nags will dissapear and you dont have to look at any Pro version nags.

    False. When I try to buy the upgrade, it says I’m eligible for an 80% discount, but it shows the upgrade price as 6.39 EUR, which comes out to about $10.13 USD. I am in the US.


  • Alpha Testers

    woot!
    got mine and it was $7.00 something well spent in my opinion.
    great work guys…:)

    why are you trying to buy international version? If you need english, you need to get english version.

    Unless you originally purchased International version.

    Pricing is different for both versions, and both get 80% discount compared to their original price.


  • Alpha Testers

    Hi,

    Well I have just pruchased the upgrade today, must say that PowerArchiver is as stated the Ultimate Archive Utility for Windows.



  • Thanks for the 80% discount. Upgraded! 😃



  • Thanks for the 80% discount.



  • With the discount it would just be rude not to upgrade to Pro.

    Cheers

    Pricing is different for both versions, and both get 80% discount compared to their original price.

    All I’m doing is navigating to https://www.conexware.com/shop/index.php and clicking the “Upgrade” link. There is one and only one such link under the “Available Upgrades” section I see when I go to that page. The product I am eligible for an 80% discount on is shown as “PowerArchiver 2009 Pro with Outlook Plug-in International License”. There is no English-only product shown.

    It says I bought “PowerArchiver 2003 Personal License”, which is accurate. I still have my email receipt, and it does not say that it is the international version, nor do I know why it would have been. I lived in the US when I placed that order.

    I also have an email showing the registration code for PA 2007. That email says “As you placed your order for English-only, this code will only work with the English language version of PowerArchiver 2007.”

    Can you help me?
