The software reviewer at the SlaughterHouse speculated that commercial developers of zip programs ought to just pack it in when they see how good QuickZip is. If you agree or disagree, why not post an evaluation here so we can benefit from your experience? It seems to be free, plus has support for Chinese and several European languages.

Release 3.05 is shipping as of November, 2003.

ShipInBottle Archiver

This is a Russian language web site, so I’ll have to apologize in advance for any mistakes. As far as I can tell, this is a PPM-based archiver. I can’t tell if it’s free or not, so I’m listing it as both!

Dmitry Shkarin

Dmitry Shkarin is the author of the PPMD compressor. His homepage has links to to versions A-I of the compressor as of April, 2003. This page is in Russian, but I find that running it through
BabelFish produces a usuable translation.

Reader Dan L. says The best site about comression!

“Data Compression Fundamentals” (1998)

Andrey Fomin has posted a long Russian paper in word format on his web site. You’ll need a Microsoft Passport (free) to get here, but it’s worth the trip if you can read it.
Andrey has this to say about his paper/book:
A survey of different basic Data Compression techniques. Uses some mathematical and statistical materials, but doesn’t require a
special scientific degree. Though written in Russian, this book contains VERY useful References, Examples and Source Codes!
