Alongside several enhancements and fixes, PeaZip 6.8.1 introduces full integration with native Windows drag & drop for extraction from archives and for file copy / move operations.
The new native drag & drop extraction process automatically removes extra directory nesting and interactively ask for overwriting existing files, while retaining the speed, stability and security advantages of previous custom drag and drop implementation (still available as option).
Archives are now tested for encryption before extraction, and progress bar accuracy is improved.
Various fixes and improvements
EXTRACTION and ARCHIVING
Encrypted archives are now tested before extraction to ask for password if needed
Fixed bug preventing to complete test of some encrypted archives
Improved performance of list / test operations
Improved progress bar accurancy for most archive formats

(Windows) Native drag and drop extraction now try to locate destination path with same method of custom drag and drop, in order to write the data directly to destination path:
performances improved, trying to write directly to destination volume a further copy operation overhead is avoided;
security improved, trying to avoid extracting data to temp path which may have different security properties than output path;
stability improved, trying to avoid extracting temporary data to a volume which may have not enough free space.
