7-Zip Portable 4.42 has been released as a multilingual package. It's the handy 7-Zip file archiver packaged as a portable app, so you can work with your compressed files on the go from your USB flash drive, iPod or portable hard drive. It has all the same great features as 7-Zip including support for multiple file formats (7z, ZIP, BZIP, RAR, etc), an easy-to-use file manager and more. Plus, it leaves nothing behind on the PC you use it on. It even supports running from a CD. Read on for all the details...
Live/CD Support - 7-Zip Portable supports running from a CD or other read-only media right out of the box, making it easy to carry with you. Just be sure to run it once locally and download the latest definitions before burning it to CD. Full details are in the support topic on Running from a CD.
In-Place Upgrades - 7-Zip Portable supports the ability to do an "in-place upgrade". This means that you can extract the next release right over your existing installation of 7-Zip Portable without losing any of your settings and it'll Just Work.
Partial WINE Support - 7-Zip Portable can be installed and used in WINE running under your favorite UNIX/Linux distro. There will be some visual defects in the toolbars preventing the display of the address bar and the directory up button. This can be partially worked around by enabling the ".." option within Tools - Options - Settings.
