TrueZIP 7.6 has been released. This is a feature release. As usual, binary backwards compatibility of the client APIs with TrueZIP 7.0 has been retained, so please don’t hesitate to upgrade your dependencies. If you have been coding a TrueZIP Driver however, you need to recompile because this version incorporates considerable changes to the Kernel API which were required to achieve some important improvements.

It happens every now and then that I get a personal email asking for support on an issue with TrueZIP. Well, this is certainly OK, but I prefer such conversation to happen on the public user mailing list for the benefit of TrueZIP’s small but growing community. Besides, sharing our conversation with others is a way of saying thank you for a free (as in beer) VFS library/framework.

So if you haven’t done already, please subscribe to a TrueZIP mailing list at The most appropriate list is the users list. The announce list should only be used if your interest is solely in announcements – they will get copied to the user list anyway.

If you have a login on, your subscription should get confirmed instantly. Otherwise I’ll have to do it manually, so please bear with me.

Thanks in advance!
