Well, these are the changes from the 0.3.3 release:


- Increased speed ! Xarchiver is faster than ever when opening archives.
                - Added Drag and Drop from and to Xarchiver window by
using the XDS protocol.
                - Added the (in)famous cmd-line switches; see
xarchiver -? for details.
                - Added a Stop button who cancels the current
operation or you can use the ESC key.
                - Added the ability to test archives.
                - Added an archive properties window showing useful
info about the archive and its content.
                - Added two menu entries in the Action menu to select
or unselect the files in the treeview.
                - Added support for ISO images (opening, extract and view only).
                - "Row selection while you type" ability. Useful when
you have thousand of files inside the archive.
                - The extract dialog now "remembers" the last used
extraction path.
                - The extract dialog automatically sets the
destination directory as the archive path.
                - The enter key can be also used with the extract dialog.
                - You can use accelerators (keyboard shortcuts) for
almost the menu entries.
                - The Del key can also be used instead of the Delete
button on the toolbar.
                - Removed the confirmation dialog when opening bzip2
and gzip compressed files.
                - Added a confirmation dialog when deleting files from
the archive.
                - Finally fixed bug randomly causing rar and arj
output badly appears.
                - Finally fixed bug randomly causing tar.bz2 and
tar.gz archives to be corrupted when deleting files from them.
                - Fixed some memory leaks but surely someone is left :)
                - Fixed bug causing filenames with spaces inside the
archive not being viewed.
                - Fixed bug causing filenames with spaces in arj
archives appear truncated in Xarchiver window.
                - Fixed a bug preventing the file dialog to select
more than one file when adding to arj archives.
                - Fixed progress bar not appearing when adding only
one big file to an archive.
                - Fixed a bug causing Xarchiver to hang when opening
empty zip archives.
                - Fixed a bug causing Xarchiver to exit when opening a
not supported archive directly from the command line.
                - Fixed a bug preventing Xarchiver to compress files
with bzip2 or gzip.
