  * Several improvements and fixes.
  * Multiple archiving and extraction tasks are now performed in

    "Remove redundant directory" option if the new folder contains
    a single object (file or folder), content is copied outside and

    content outside the new folder fails, the content is kept in

    Currently the plugin is available only for Windows or Wine/ReactOS,

  * Due the non-OSI compatible unrar restriction (even if the software
    provides sources and is royalty-free) the software is available as
    separate plugin on Add-Ons page.
  * Due the different syntax between RarLab's unrar and 7z/p7zip's unrar,
    following differences apply when handling RAR5 format:
  - Recursivity with advanced filters is always enabled.
  - Renaming options always rename the file being extracted.
  * Added LIBRE_DIRECTIVE option to disallow any call to software
    which is non-free under OSI definition:

    both free-as-in-freedom and royalty-free.
  - If set to 1 (flexible) PeaZip will disallow any call to
    royalty-free but non free-as-in-freedom backend,
    currently: unace and unrar binaries.
  - If set to 2 (strict) PeaZip will disallow calls even in case
    of dubious status, currently apply to unrar functions in
