ZipOutputStream doesn't exist..

Oct 30, 2009 at 9:36 PM

Hey guys,

I just came across this awesome project yesterday and I had a quick question. I downloaded the latest

version of the software and referenced the dll in visual studio. However, when I try to create  a ZipOutputStream,

the compiler throws an error saying it doesn't exist. Using IntelliSense, I looked at the availible classes under Ionic.Zip.

I did not see ZipInputStream or ZipOutputStream. No, I am not a noob. I used the correct import statements. :)

According to the documentation, the ZipOutputStream (and ZipInputStream) should exist. However, I can't find them

in the dll. Where are they? Are they discontinued? I really need the Stream capabilites. I DO NOT want to use ZipFile.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Those classes were introduced in v1.9 of the project.  I'm guessing you downloaded v1.8.

You're probably right. But why is it that the download are suggests v1.8?

that doesn't make any sense? Where do you download v1.9? Is it some sort of beta?

yep, v1.9 is still beta.  It's available on the downloads list.
