Feature Release

Xceed Real-Time Zip for .NET lets applications read or write fully standard Zip archives without resorting to intermediate disk/memory storage or temporary files. Archives and extracted files are immediately ready for processing while data is still being received. Xceed Real-Time Zip for .NET provides optimized, “on-the-fly” performance ideal for scenarios such as high-demand server environments, Biztalk servers, diskless operations, I/O-intensive Web sites, or any situation where real-time streaming zip/unzip capabilities are needed, or where memory or disk space is at a premium. Xceed Real-Time Zip for .NET Blueprint Edition includes the product's C# source code as well as a 1-year Vanguard subscription including updates to the source code.

Xceed Real-Time Zip for .NET is also available as part of Xceed Data Manipulation Suite and Xceed Ultimate Suite.

Updates in V5.1

  • Zip format compatibility improvements and bug fixes. Specifically, compatibility with older zip tools has been increased by making it the default behavior to produce Zip 2.0-compatible archives; this behavior can be changed by the developer.
  • Also, the ZipWriter can generate uncompressed zip files that the product's ZipReader can read increasing flexibility (combines the Deflate format and no compression).
