    secure as no content is unpacked/decrypted outside of the
    intended destination path

    drag and drop extraction and preview using user's temp
  - None: no exceptions allowed, no temporary work data is saved,

    novice users better performance balance for general purpose
  - Modified existing preset scripts
  - 10 from faster zip to fast zip
  - 12 (Linux) from .tar.zst to .7z using Zstandard compression
    (which requires single pass)
  - Test mode always show details about single files in archive
  - (Windows XP) additional 7z codecs introduced in 7.4 line,

  * 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.

    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
