I noticed the package app-arch/p7zip is becoming quite old, since the current version 16.02 was released in May 2016, and since when the current version 18.05 was released end of April 2018.
Unfortunately, I was not able to put my hands on the newer source code of p7zip from sourceforge, the last entry is actually the version 16.02; however, the source code for 7-zip — which seams to be the same stuff, right? — is available here:
Do you think those are related? Why isn't the main p7zip program updated as the 7-Zip version?
Another request concerns its dependency to x11-libs/wxGTK, do you think it is possible to now use (at will?) the gtk3 flavor? Even with the current USE flag "wxwidgets" activated, I don't have the GUI like I see on Windows, so I have no idea what this USE flag does, actually.
I noticed however there is comment related to the executable 7zFM (the file manager executable as I see on Windows), is it a normal modifications?
Thanks for support.
p7zip upstream seems mostly dead to me (or very badly run). I'm not sure those sources are correct. I've searched for p7zip in other distros (fedora arch ubuntu) not finding anything past 16.02.
