Thank you for your response! I am glad that ZipGenius is not abandoned since it is a very nice archiver. I read the post at Google Plus and I find it very interesting.
I too hate Windows 8 interface (Start Screen, Hot Corners, etc) but with the help of Classic Shell I have eliminated all these nuisances.
About the unification of the editions (Standard & Suite)- for me it is OK but why remove FTPGenius and skins? The FTP module can be very useful while skin support is always a good feature for me- at least there might be users who would like to create skins for ZipGenius.
Will ZipGenius 7 support RAR5, ZIPX, ARC and KZ archives?
What is ShinyUI? Can I see any samples? I hope ZipGenius won't embrace Windows 8 Flat Metro style.
Do you have any idea when ZipGenius 7 Betas will be released for testing? By the way you can rely upon me for testing of ZipGenius on Windows 8.
