WinRAR 5.50 Beta 2 released

  1. Previous versions ignored files with invalid UTF-8 names inside of ZIP archives. Now WinRAR extracts such files, even though their names may include arbitrary text after unpacking.
  2. Bugs fixed:
    1. 5.50 beta 1 could crash when extracting some of broken RAR4 archives;
    2. "Settings/Viewer/Unpack everything for" was ignored for files matching "Settings/Archives/File types to open as archives first" masks. Now it is changed, so "Unpack everything for" has a higher precedence for archived files. Files inside of archive matching "Unpack everything for" masks are processed according to that option even if they are also matched by "File types to open as archives first" masks.
