Popular file compression program WinZip is soon to be available in a new and improved version. Gone is the nag screen fin comes a new 'Professional' version with added automation features.
That's right. Two versions! The new 'Standard' version of WinZip has no nag screen, and also has a new Explorer style tree-structured view. There are a couple of new compression methods as well. The 'Professional' version adds a very capable productivity and automation tool to the arsenal. The version is determined by the registration code. Unlock it with a registration code and the code you've purchased determines if it will be the Standard or Professional version.
There are quite a few more new features in addition to the ones mentioned here. WinZip Version 10.0 Beta is now available for download if you want to have a look at it. I'm sure it won't be too long before we see it as a final release.
Those who hold a license for earlier versions will need to purchase Version 10.0. It won't be a free update.
