ZIP FILE COMPRESSOR
By ALEXANDER LöWENSTEIN
We want to extend the range of supported compression formats.
We want to enhance our ZIP file compressor "xRar" to support more compression formats. The product is currently in its 3rd Version and you can download it at https://www.xrar.org/setup.exe
xRar is a super lightweight file compression tool. We have designed it to be as easy, simple and efficient to be. Its Unique Selling Proposition is its design and ease of use:
We were annoyed by the existing solutions of WinZip, that were either too commercially crowded, or WinRar, that turned out to be too complicated or expensive. xRar is our approach to an advertisment free compression & decompression tool that only does one thing: working properly - and nothing else.
In the next release (V4) we want to add the following functionality:
With these formats included the file compressor would cover 98% of the major archive formats out there that were developed between 1989 and 2014.
What you give and what you get
We will use all funds raised for development.

Project Creator's notes
I built xRar out of love and it's fun developing something that gives back to other people :)
Risks and Challenges
It may not be possible to integrate all of the formats. Yet we will try our best to get in as much as possible.
We are going to hire a few key people on file compression technology and file encryption.
