WinRAR 6.11 final released

Release date: 04.03.2022


The final version of WinRAR 6.11 has been released!

Berlin, March 4th, 2022: RARLAB.COM and win.rar GmbH are proud to announce the release of the final version of WinRAR 6.11. WinRAR is constantly being improved to provide users with a stable and reliable compression and archive management software. This update was necessary to fix some bugs which occurred during usage of the previous version(s).

The highlights of the new version are:

Support of Gzip archives with large archive comments has been added. Previously, the extraction command of .gz archives failed if the comment size exceeded 16 KB. The archive comments in .gz archives are displayed in the comment window and are recognized by using the "Show information" command. If there are large comments, they are now displayed partially. In previous versions, Gzip comments didn’t show up.

In command line mode, the switch -mes can also be used to suppress the password prompt and abort when adding new files to an encrypted solid archive.

Additional features to prevent extracting insecure links in archive data have been added.

A few bugs that appeared during the usage of WinRAR in different environments have been fixed to provide all users with a stable, bug-free version. For example, a wrong archived file time could have been displayed in the overwrite prompt when extracting a file from a ZIP archive. Such errors occurred if an archive included extended file times and was created in another time zone. It didn’t affect the actual file time, which was set properly upon extraction. It has now been resolved in the new WinRAR 6.11 version.
