Version 2.1 of Free RAR Extract Frog released


Version 2.1 of my free Windows tool "Free RAR Extract Frog" has been released a few moments ago. Free RAR Extract Frog has won over 30 5-star awards and is used by an ever growing group of users who like their RAR files to be extracted easily and super-fast.

A lot of users have sent brilliant ideas and thoughtful tips on how to improve Free RAR Extract Frog and make it even more comfortable. Version 2.1 is a major update and comes with the most useful new features, that users have come up with, e.g.:

  • A new password list feature, that allows you to have Free RAR Extract Frog try all passwords from a list with standard passwords prior to asking for the password

  • Full support for roaming per-user settings (AppData) - each user's individual skin and settings are available on every computer in the network

  • Automatic checking of the output folder - if it is read-only or full, Free RAR Extract Frog asks you to choose a different folder

  • A new "Unrar..."-button on the main screen - if you don't know how to handle drag'n'drop, simply click the button, choose you RAR file and everything is well

  • Newly designed "Options"-tab that shows all password- and output folder-options in an easy-to-use manner

  • Newly designed "Interface"-tab that gives you more control over the user inteface, e.g.: decide, whether you want the "Unrar.."-button mentioned above to be displayed

  • New dialog options, e.g.: It is now possible to deactivate all "file replace"-warnings and always overwrite files

  • New welcome- and wizard-dialogs help first-time users to easily understand how to unrar with Free RAR Extract Frog and guide them through the process
Don't hesitate to take a look at the screenshots of the new interface... If you would like to read the full specs, take a look at the PAD...

The next update of Free RAR Extract Frog, version 2.1, will be released in a few days. Here are some screenshots of the new options and features:
Most users liked the easy-to-use interface of Free RAR Extract Frog, but some first-time users still got confused and wanted an "Unrar..."-button as additional way to start to unrar files and a help dialog that explains how to use it. So here it is:
If you like the old style without the "Unrar..."-button better, you can turn that button off on the interface settings tab:
A lot of users had great ideas on how to make the handling of password protected RAR files even more comfortable. The solution that fits best all their requests is the new password list feature. This feature allows users to define a text file with lots of standard passwords. Free RAR Extract Frog tries to use them, before it asks for the password. If a matching password is in the list, the RAR file will be extracted smoothly and quickly, as if it had no password protection:
