PowerArchiver 2011 Final


  • conexware

    i thought we do that? 😉

    Sorry I was unclear.

    Of course you make changes. But I am inclined to think that some suggestions get made once and, with everything else going on, get dropped. That’s no flaw, just the nature of the beast.

    I thought that after a major release, we might collectively think about which of these changes would be best.

    I couldn’t tell you all the proposals (since they come at different places in the forums). Such a list would help remind me of good suggestions I have forgotten.

    Perhaps, though, others don’t think this meritorious or necessary.

    Sorry you took this as a criticism. It was meant as anything but.


  • conexware

    i didnt :-).



  • Socrate’s we take our Existing & Prospect user thoughts very seriosly and try and adapt it through a screening process whereby the Developers & Alpha testers discuss night and day what would be nice, great and vital to PowerArchiver’s future & its user base.

    Everyone’s Suggestions are read. But as you can imagine there is allot of requests and even narrowing it down is time consuming and within that time you end up getting more and more requests.

    I personally think powerarchiver is faster than its competitors when developing new features and improvements. But alas some are left behind… but no forgotten 🙂

    Spwolf, I like the new site! Looking forward to the full release!



  • I’m just hoping they can figure out that bug where RC4 triggers UAC when opening, but still opens even after I deny it (3 times) before a final version. I seem to be the only one with this issue though, at least among the posters here. No, I didn’t post it- I used email when I didn’t remember my password. As you can see I finally figured it out. 😉

    Hopefully they will! but even if they can’t make it before final with Patchbeam it could be “patched” under 3 seconds when they find the fix :D.

    But I understand how frustrating it is when you want things to work before final…
    I’ve been nagging the developers for FTP, Ribbon changes, Configuration enhancements.

    Guido Nags whenever he spots any detail that doesn’t act or look as it should hense why PA is so pretty 😉

    Moles42 & luxor have been pushing for other areas such as Backup & Burner and issues with Virtual driver support etc

    One happy family…

    Keep posting the forums Qun Mang we do read them! Honeslty!

    it is always problem when we cant reproduce it, i know support has been trying to replicate the issue.



  • Thanks, I know you’re looking. Just let me know if you need anything else from me. Just be warned, I will be away for most of the week starting tomorrow morning so if I don’t reply that will be why.



  • Do you have the status of the completion of the new PowerArchiver 2011 website?


  • Alpha Testers

    a question I too pondered on Keith but I’m speculating that the release of a ‘Final’ for ‘PA’ might be of a higher priority at this current time…I’m sure Admin will let us know either way…:)


  • conexware

    soon 🙂

    we found the issue, not the fix yet… it happens onlx on 64bit, and what happens is that admin account gets the associations.



  • Will the final be available this week? Are there last minute bugs that still need to be fixed?



  • I think we are close Keith! not sure if its this week though.


  • Alpha Testers

    it never comes soon enough does it Keith?…:)


  • conexware

    we trying hard to make this week… thanks



  • I think this version of PowerArchiver has taken longer than anticipated because of all its features.

    Most if not all of the Alpha team have been helping for months picking out the bugs and suggesting new features or backing requested features… and the poor developers have had at times to grin and bare it.

    However, I rather a working, stable and reliable piece of software reach our user base by release than let existing and prospects down due to rushing it.

    I suppose there would be no harm if we left 2011 and released it in December as 2012… there is now law to suggest developers have to bring out new versions each year. 🙂

    I’ve been working on a new menu system and database at work for the past 2 years and many of the features i bring out are tested by a small team i select but it is down to me as the developer to decide if all the work should be produced at a specific time.


  • conexware

    we finished work for final release this week, so unless we have something major, we have final… just need to finish up the new website.

    since there was long delay between 2010 and 2011 (major versions, we issued many updates with new features), we will probably do 2012 much sooner - like in very early 2012, with new format 🙂



  • You know what… I am more excited for the release of the website than the program… i think because its just a change from the old style!

    obviosly powerarchiver app is important to me but ive been working with it since early days 🙂


  • conexware

    well you know how it site looks like already and where it is 🙂

    i am looking at it for past weeks and now it is old for me 🙂

  • @Luxor:

    So you have not heard about the increased crime rates since the ‘change’ then? Many more deaths and crimes with all colours of the rainbow affected. Don’t be fooled that all is okay now it is not on the news.

    I had segregation in mind when I commented that it was a change for the better. Because segregation is wrong and anything is an improvement on that.



  • We shall see how it goes. I am not easily fooled and understand what the media say and what actually occurs can be very different.

    However, like every country there are good and bad area’s. I know from our plan that we will see both but thats part of the experience.

    Bar being shot, i can handle myself 🙂



  • Bar being shot, i can handle myself

    Against how many at once LOL?

    Back when I did Tae Kwon Do & other martial arts we were checked on multiple attackers. My maximum score was 16.

    Obvisoly, if they all jumped on me at once i dont really have chance, but statistically there is always 1 or 2 ring leaders who go in 1st… take them down with a quick impact to their knee, upper strick to their nose etc etc then the others usually back off.

    also that was 7 years ago before when i was younger and active!… i’ll probably only manage 1 LOL.

    But regardless the skills i learnt still are with me.

    The one thing I dont like about UK law is you must tell your attackers you are capable of defending yourself, else they can sue you… screwed up laws where attackers can sue someone for defending themselfs!

    Plus it takes out the element of supprise! which is key in any defense or attack.


  • conexware

    I know who will be my bodyguard when i come to SA or UK

    🙂

    That’s just the law in England & Wales I think.
    So move to Scotland or Northern Ireland and your sorted. 😉

    🙂

    Joking aside 3 years ago I looked into Body Guard training… But it would of meant leaving the uk and doing 2 years extensive training in iraq! bit of a hot zone at the time even now so i gave it a miss.

    The one thing to ask is why do you think you need a bodygaurd when visiting the UK… is there something your not telling us? lol

  • LoL! You make the UK Sound like a death trap! 😃 Besides, your not a known star here so you should be fine. 🙂

  • Why hasn’t PowerArchiver 2011 final been released yet? It was supposed to be released today.


  • Alpha Testers

    we wait with bated breath Keith…:)


  • conexware

    unfortunately we caught an spelling error in final version, so today 🙂



  • Can you put the forums on the new website?


  • conexware

    @Keith:

    Can you put the forums on the new website?

    when i saw new post from keith, i KNEW what it will be about 🙂

    yes, we will transition it over the weekend…



  • Keith! You are either very impatient or keen about powerarchiver’s app and site 😃

    The site’s being loaded in stages, forums to follow 🙂

    Drazen and I have been talking about some additional pages under the community & support section… Haven’t we boss 🙂


  • conexware

    Sir Richard - superstar!



  • I was going to comment this morning, but figured someone would have it covered lol…


  • Alpha Testers

    Are you going to release a free version of PowerArchiver 2011?



  • Any news on when the bug regarding the mru paths not appearing in the extract’s ‘extract to…’ list until the mouse cursor is moved over the space?

    This was confirmed a while ago and put on the back burner is it is low priority.

    Thanks for the latest final.

    Thanks
