    1. Third beta release of WinRAR 3.30!

    RARLAB and win.rar GmbH have released the third beta of WinRAR 3.30.

    Changes in WinRAR 3.30 beta 3:

    1. Volume size autodetecting did not work properly with
    self-extracting volumes.

    2. Combintion of -v -st switches could produce corrupt volumes.
    Now RAR automatically turns off -v in such sitution.

    3. "Rename" command did not work in the flat view mode for files
    in archive subfolders.

    4. Command line -f and -u switches could fail to work when
    extracting files.

    Be the first to download the trial version of WinRAR 3.30 beta 3 here: http://www.win-rar.com/index.php?aid=download

    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.

    More detailed infos can be found here: http://www.win-rar.com/index.php?aid=download

    3. How to upgrade your old WinRAR version?

    Upgrading is quick and easy. Users only need to download WinRAR 3.30 at http://www.win-rar.com/index.php?aid=download and install the newest
    version of WinRAR to continue using the best compression tool around!
    Please close all open WinRAR archives and exit WinRAR before installing.
