I swear there has to be something in the air this past 48 hours as companies continue to introduce many new products - both hardware and software wise. Winzip have released version 9.0 Beta of their popular file compression software.
Improvements in WinZip 9.0 concentrate on its core functionality: compression, capacity, and a new, advanced data encryption capability. Using WinZip 9.0, you can compress more data, compress it better, and protect your sensitive documents with far greater security.More information @ Winzip
WinZip 9.0 supports 128- and 256-bit key AES encryption, which provide much greater cryptographic security than the traditional Zip 2.0 encryption method used in earlier versions of WinZip.
