New York, NY, 3 February 2014 – B1 Free Archiver 0.9.1 version for Android is now available. The new version provides support for RAR format’s next iteration – RAR5. B1 Free Archiver has become more stable and multilingual as it now supports more languages.
B1 Free Archiver has become one of the first apps of its kind that extract RAR5 archives. The format was introduced not more than 6 months ago therefore the apps that support it are very few. Moreover, B1 Free Archiver unpacks split and password-protected archives in RAR5 format and it is so far the only free compression utility that deals with such types of RAR5 archives.
The 0.9.1 version of B1 Free Archiver for Android has become better tailored for worldwide use. Now users from Indonesia and Vietnam can enjoy the new experience of using the app in their native languages. So far B1 Free Archiver is localized into nearly 40 languages and thus deserves the title of a real polyglot.
B1 Free Archiver team is constantly keeping in touch with its devoted fans and novice users and carefully examines all their suggestions and ideas. Some of them turn into new features. Due to users’ feedback and B1’s own in-house testing all discovered bugs from the previous version have been worked through and fixed. Thus 0.9.1 appears more stable, reliable and fast.
Adam Buyer, project leader at B1 says:
“We are constantly watching the latest trends and developments in the world of file archivers. This world may seem calm for users but believe me, it is dynamic indeed when you are a developer. So when we noticed RAR5 format gaining popularity we immediately started working to provide support for it. Now we open RAR5 files on both desktop and Android thus contributing to the integrity and accomplishment of B1 Free Archiver ecosystem.
Our developer team has worked hard to prepare B1 Free Archiver for its new release. This time we aimed our efforts at scrupulous testing and fixing B1 Archiver to make it more stable and universal. Our work is largely determined by the speedy development of the software environment in which it operates. That’s why B1 Archiver’s stability is our number 1 priority as it needs to keep up with the external changes no matter what”.
Launched in 2011, B1 Free Archiver remains the most friendly and simple software to open and create archives. B1 supports many compression formats (zip, rar, 7z, tar, gz) as well as its own b1 format. It works on all popular platforms – Windows, Mac, Linux, Android and as a web-application. B1 Free Archiver is 100% free for both personal and commercial use.
