FZip has been updated, it has a couple nifty changes.
- Apollo/Air has built-in deflate support (ironic, isn’t it?), so if you make an Air app, you don’t need to “prepare” the zip file like before. This means FZip can open any zip file from within Air.
- There’s better support for foreign language filenames. Unicode is now the default, but that can be easily changed.
- There’s a new class, FZipLibrary, which is an (optional) processor that makes it easier to convert incoming files into other formats (images, swf files, etc).
The Air support is the most significant change, but if you’re putting the zip online you’ll have to run it through fzip-prepare.py first.
