Version Explanation:

Version: 1.0 (Final Version)
New central registry folder.
Fixed a bug in compression engine.
Memory Optimizations.
Processor Optimizations.
Fixed a bug in Windows 2000.
Improved speed in compression.

BETA 1B:

A lot of small glitches fixed.
Improved stability.
Faster compression engine.

BETA 1A:

Fixed more problems with big files.
Fixed some memory issues with big files.

BETA 1:
Added PK4 Support.
Fixed some issues with big (over 300Mb) PK4 Files.
Fixed two bugs related with file formats.

Install Instructions:

Run Setup.exe and follow on screen instructions, on the choose setup type, select if you want that (.PK4) file format is associated with PK4Scape or not.

Technical Information:

Maximum files in a PK4 file: 65535 files.
Maximum path in a PK4 file:  65535 bytes.

Tips and Tricks:

If you don't have a lot of free memory save the archive directly after 
you've added a few files.

If you don't have a fast processor use normal compression when saving PK4 archives, maximum compression is a lot slower and normally doesn't compress a whole lot more than normal compression, also it may decrease performance in game.

Bugs/Limitations:

* When moving objects (files and directories) all of the original 
  objects will be deleted unless you cancel the operation in a 
  'Confirm Replace' dialog. Answering 'No' will only result in that 
  the destination file is not overwritten- the file to be moved will 
  still be deleted!
* File type descriptions may be wrong for non-registered types unless 
  you have used the file open/save dialog. I have no idea why.
* If you decide to view a document (i.e. either double-click the document 
  or choose 'Open' from the context menu) that is registered to open with 
  PK4Scape the temporary file created will not be deleted when PK4Scape closes.
