Zip is a compression and file packaging utility
for Unix, VMS, DOS, OS/2, Windows 9x/NT, Amiga,
Atari, Macintosh, BeOS, SMS/QDOS, MVS, VM/CMS, and others. It is analogous to a combination of the
Unix commands tar(1) and compress(1) and is
compatible with PKWARE's PKZIP and Nico Mak's WinZip. It's part of the Info-ZIP project.

This release adds support for Unix named pipes and
adds a new option to
detect "soft failures" (e.g., a wildcard pattern
failed to match any
files). It fixes/enhances the recursion option and
fixes an encryption
bug, NTFS timestamps, the delete-by-date option, a
parsing problem, and several other issues.
This release is being made primarily to address a minor buffer overrun vulnerability (CAN-2004-1010), but it also includes a new AtheOS port, native VMS enhancements, better detection of binary files, improved support for Visual Basic in the Win32 DLL, and bundled crypto sources.
