PeaZip 2.2

Hi, PeaZip 2.2 is now available, you can see full changelog and release notes here: http://peazip.sourceforge.net/

This release supports localization (language files can be copied in peazipdirectory\res\lang) and allows custom location for application's data files (data which needs to be writeable at runtime) through \res\altconf.txt file.

If you want to contribute a localization, I aimed to keep translator's work as simple as possible (I hope!), see instructions in peazip-2.2.translations.zip package:
https://downloads.sourceforge.net/peazip/peazip-2.2.translations.zip?use...

I started school this week, so last week was rather busy getting stuff ready. I have large gaps between course times, and only 1 class on mondays and wednesdays, so tomorrow i'll get PeaZip 2.2 Pre-Release out with updated launcher and installer.

BTW, If you like to include them in the PAF release, there are two more translations available on SourceForge, Czech and Portuguese.

Bug

Hi giorgiotani!

First of all: Peazip is wonderful! Smile

I found a bug though. Here's what i do and what happens when i want to extract a zip file.
1) I right-click on the zip file and select "Extract archive to" or "Extract archive here"
2) I select a folder
3) It extracts fine and i get the window with progress and report in it.
4) I close that window and an error message pops up saying "Access violation" (screenshot)
5) I can choose "ok" or "cancel" so i say "ok" and the window closes.

The data in the file is not corrupted though. This error pops up every time i extract a zip/.7z
It's nothing too bad but it's pretty annoying.

I'm using Windows XP SP3.

EDIT: It works ok now. I selected the option to close the window automatically and now i don't get the error anymore.

That is quite strange, I'm not able to replicate this issue on my XP SP3 test machines and, even more strange, I've got a similar but exaclty opposite report of "Acess violation" message shown when using "close the window automatically" which gone away unflagging that option.

I think it may be linked to the fact I'm using an experimental release of the Lazarus IDE to offer early support for UTF8 text in the GUI of 2.2 release, so I hope this problem which seem randomically appear on some configuration will go away in future updates, or that the reason it appear will become consistently reproducible on various configurations so I can fix it.

That's indeed weird! Well for now it works fine so I'm happy with Peazip!
I'll let you know if it shows up again.

I was still not able to replicate the access violation issue (I'm either too luck or too unluck!), but I found a possible cause that is know to have chances to generate the error message.

I used to use Delphi/FreePascal halt instruction (as in console programming) to terminate the program, but when GUI resources are involved it is a better practice to use other methods that checks all resources are released before the system had to handle to program's termination.
In next release of PeaZip I'll use Application.Terminate for all error conditions, and Form.Close for all non-error condition where it is required to close the executables i.e. run as different user, close pealauncher window, directly add/extract from system's context menus etc.

Moreover I'm using an updated release of the IDE to test the new version and probably the next stable release of the Lazarus IDE will be avaliable in time, so I hope this error message will not show up any more.

Access violation error again

Hi giorgiotani,

I got the same problem again this time with the "close the window automatically"-option checked. It's a weird bug since it doesn't occur every time i use peazip to extract an archive.
I thought I'd keep you up to date (as promised).

Hi Giorgio,
first of all, great program. I use it more than 7-Zip now Smile
Thank you for the localizations since version 2.2. I have changed the language to german. But now, the description texts don't fit in into the big buttons (e.g. Add file(s), Add folder,...). Is it possible to change the width of these?

Or perhaps: Show only the icons in the buttons (remove the text) and add the description text to tooltips. This way the width of the buttons can be the same for all localizations.

Hi, in PeaZip 2.3 (will be released soon) the buttons are wider and fit well the texts of available translations.
In future if this problem happens again with the new button width I could consider about making button width customisable, or to make the button autosize to fit the text.

I already use Peazip in place of 7-zip, and there seem to be a lot of others doing the same.
