Winzip 16.5 update

Got some news about additional features when I downloaded the latest release 16.5 of Winzip.

WinZip 16.5 introduces:

  • ultra-fast zip engine that taps into your computer’s full processing power (haven’t been able to quantify that yet)
  • next-generation technology that harnesses the power of AMD graphics processors (GPUs)
  • streamlined interface with a more attractive, intuitive look-and-feel

The previous WinZip 16.0 introduced:

  • powerful 64-bit zip engine upgrade for maximum zipping speed
  • seamless integration with WinZip’s breakthrough large file sending service, ZipSend.
  • the ability to send very large Zip files (up to 2GB) using ZipSend
  • instant access to WinZip’s NEW Facebook app, ZipShare
  • the ability to zip and post any type of file (up to 20MB) to Facebook using ZipShare
  • the ability to zip and write files to Blu-ray Disc directly from the WinZip window
  • the ability to convert other major compression file formats to Zip format
  • extended preview functionality for other major compression file formats
  • the ability to scan and diagnose PC performance issues using WinZip’s built-in System Scanner tool
