Description Arthur Koziel 2006-07-20 02:57:17 UTC
Hello :)
A new beta of unrar was released today, currently the src is not on the site - but  i think renaming should be fine when its available.

However, i think that beta 8 should be stabilized, this is because in beta 7+8 two Stack overflow vulnerabilitys were fixed.

Version 3.60 beta 8
1. Stack overflow vulnerability has been corrected in SFX module.
Version 3.60 beta 7
1. Stack overflow vulnerability has been corrected in WinRAR module
   processing LZH archives. We thank Ryan Smith,,
   for reporting this problem.

Since the current stable (beta2) there were no major changes and i've used beta  7 without any problems on my amd64.

Pretty hard to bump something that's not available. Reopen when there's something to download, please.
