MANSFIELD, CT – November 1, 2005 – WinZip Computing significantly improves the usability and functionality of its popular compression utility for Windows with today’s release of WinZip 10.0.
WinZip 10.0 allows users to send e-mail faster and save additional disk space by using improved compression technology that creates even smaller Zip files. WinZip 10.0 also offers users a new Explorer-style view, making it easier to manage large, multi-folder Zip files. Other enhancements include the ability to create split (multi-volume) Zip files during compression, automatic update checking, and support for the Windows XP SP2 Attachment Manager, which helps users protect their computers by warning them of files that might be dangerous to open.
For the first time, WinZip is now also available with optional Pro features offering valuable additional functionality. WinZip 10.0 Pro includes the WinZip Job Wizard, a powerful new tool that offers predefined data backup jobs and allows users to create Zip “jobs” that automate almost any repetitive zipping task, including custom-made daily data backups, periodic reporting, and data archiving. Users can also move valuable data off site by using the included FTP upload functionality.
WinZip 10.0 Pro also allows users to create Zip files directly on CDs and DVDs. This eliminates the need to zip to a hard drive and then transfer the files. Large Zip files will automatically span multiple CDs/DVDs, as necessary.
WinZip 10.0 Standard is US$29.95, and WinZip 10.0 Pro is US$49.95. Attractive volume licensing discounts are available. Download links and ordering information can be found on the WinZip web site at http://www.winzip.com.
