Release Notes

This is the latest stable version of DotNetZip, v1.8.4.31.

DotNetZip is free, but donations are welcomed. Your gift goes to charity. http://cheeso.members.winisp.net/DotNetZipDonate.aspx

New features in v1.8 (workitem noted where applicable):
There are some breaking changes from v1.7:
  • CompressionLevel enumerations have changed to be FxCop-compliant. Eg, BEST_COMPRESSION has been replaced by BestCompression, LEVEL3 has been replace by Level3, and so on. Also, the CompressionStrategy enumeration also has similar changes.

Other notable changes:
  • The use of temporary files has changed: Now, the library creates a temp file in the same directory as the final zip file. Previously the library used the user's temp directory. Apps can still override this with the ZipFile.TempFileFolder property.

This release has these downloads:
  1. DotNetzip-src-v1.8.x.x.zip - the source code for the Zip & Zlib Libraries, the setup (msi) project, and a bunch of examples. Download this if you want to peruse or modify the source, or extend the example utilities.
  2. DotNetZipLib-DevKit-v1.8.zip - a binary release, that includes of the signed DLLs for Zip and Zlib, for desktop and Compact Framework; the XML Documentation file for intellisense; the compiled help file (CHM); and the License. Download this if you want to build .NET, COM, or PowerShell apps that use the Zip library.
  3. DotNetZipLib-Runtime-v1.8.zip - a binary release, that includes of the signed DLLs, and the License. Download this if you want to distribute .NET applications that use the Zip library, or if you want to run a .NET application that depends on this library.
  4. DotNetZipLib-Runtime-v1.8.msi - a binary release, that includes of the signed DLLs, and the License, packaged in an MSI installer. It registers the DLL for COM use. Download this if you want to install DotNetZip on a computer that will run apps that depend on the library.
  5. DotNetZipUtils-v1.8.zip - a set of exe tools (command-line and GUI) that rely on the library, to create and manage zip files. Download this if you want tools to manipulate zip files.
  6. DotNetZipUtils-v1.8.msi - an installer for Windows for the Zip utilities that utilize the library. This is the same stuff as the DotNetZipUtils-v1.8.zip, but in MSI form.
  7. DotNetZipLib-v1.8.chm - the help file. _see the FAQ item on the home page for how to enable this file for reading.

I have looked for a quick and universal C# zipping solution - I have got this DotNetZip library - and it did work great. It also has good documentation. Thank you.

Great library, flexible and intuitive + it works. The source code (and Cheeso) are also superb resources.

Wow this thing is great. I needed to unzip password protected files. No problem. Just set the password parameter. In less than 5 minutes I was done coding.

This library is simple to use, well written, and well supported. Recommend to anyone who requires zip functionality in their applications.

It's the nicest and cleanest ZIP library that I've seen in a long time. Good Job!

Works great for me.
by timwri on Jul 9, 2009 at 8:54 PM
I don't usually give ratings, but this one deserves an exemption: Nothing, not competing OSource and not even the two well known commercial products, is so clear, simple, straightforward, fast, un-buggy, and good as this library. Its also extremely well documented, and cleanly coded. Any special request gets the fastest response from Cheeso, and usually with a prompt fix, added to the build.

DotNetZip is easy to use and flexible for current zip formats. Kudos to Cheeso - you rock dude.
