    1. First beta release of WinRAR 3.30!

    RARLAB and win.rar GmbH have done it again!
    Just in time for Christmas, RARLAB and win.rar GmbH have released the
    first beta of WinRAR 3.30.
    Again, more proof that WinRAR is constantly improved to keep it ahead
    of the pack!

    WinRAR 3.30 has innovative features and the best usability results.
    Of course, as always, the upgrade to 3.30 is absolutely free to all
    registered users!

    ** Highlights of the 3.30 release:

    * Scan archives for viruses!

    The new "Scan archive for viruses" command has been added.
    It unpacks an archive to a temporary folder and then checks its
    contents with the antivirus software that is installed on a
    userAs computer.

    * "Enhanced deflate" can now be decompressed by WinRAR!

    WinRAR now supports decompression of ZIP archives that were created
    using the "Enhanced deflate" method.

    * New "Generate Report" Command!

    The new "Generate report" command creates a report containing a list
    of usual or archived files. You have the option to include file size,
    date and CRC to report, choose the sort order, save report to file,
    and send it to a printer or copy it to the clipboard.

    * Split archiving improved!

    WinRAR now supports creating volumes (multi-split archives) of different
    sizes. The "Next volume" dialog allows you to modify not only a name,
    but also the size of the next volume, so you may create volumes of
    different sizes. This dialog is displayed if you create volumes on
    removable disks or if you set the "Pause after each volume" option
    in the "Advanced" part of the archiving dialog.

    Just when you thought WinRAR couldn't get any better, we added 29 new
    improved items. More information on all these 29 improved items can be

    2. What is a beta version?

    A beta version, as opposed to a final version, is software that is
    undergoing its final stages in testing. We release beta versions to our customers so that the final set of bugs can be found and eliminated
    from WinRAR.
