Release Notes: The CAB decompression routines have been refactored into a reusable, portable library: libmspack. These routines are now significantly more robust and have been tested on more than three gigabytes of CAB files. The cabextract program now tells you it cannot extract InstallShield CAB files. You can explicitly select which files to extract and which cabinets to extract from. The package includes special support for Windows CE install CABs.
Release Notes: This release supports extracting cabinets using the Quantum compression method. The search algorithm for finding embedded cabinets has been greatly improved. The search for spanning cabinets is now bidirectional and correctly case-insensitive. Extracted files now have the correct date stamp, and honour your umask settings. Files beginning with "\" will no longer be extracted to the root directory. Compilation problems with getopt_long() have been resolved. A Japanese manual page is included.
