Screenshots of old versions of PA


  • Alpha Testers

    Hi!
    From what I have read in the documentation of PA, it’s about 11 years since version 1.0 was released. A lot of development has been done since then and of course a lot of improvements in both functionality and user interface.

    I was just wondering if screen shots of previous versions of PA is available somewhere? I don’t want screen shots of every version, only when some significant change in the GUI to see how the user interface have changed from the early versions of PA until latest version.

    I would also suggest a History button at the homepage with selected screen shots of earlier versions of PA that could be of interest.

    Kind Regards
    Micke



  • Good Question, I would also be interested to see a historic to modern view of PowerArchiver…

    It might also be a good form of Marketing if it was put into a Video or Flash.

    Another things that also could be of interest is a background story of how all thing started. Who came up with the idea to create a new application for compressing documents, images etc.? The name PowerArchiver, where came that from or was there other suggestions of the name of the application? How many people where involved in the beginning?

    It feels like there could be a lot of interesting background information here.

  • I agree Micke! Maybe PowerArchivers website could have an “abous us” page with all that information and history contained.

    Worth a read i would say…
