Subject: Winzip AES support committed
Date: Fri, 16 Dec 2016 16:17:41 +0100


We've just committed support for Winzip AES encryption. This is the
AES encryption version that's supported by 7zip and Winzip.

Use the new function zip_file_set_encryption() to encrypt files, and
zip_fopen_encrypted() for decrypting files. You can also provide an
archive-wide password with zip_set_password() for both encryption and

Windows support is missing a part for encryption: Can someone please
fill in lib/zip_random_windows.c with code to provide random bytes?

Let us know if you find any problems.
