    Default Add support for Archive types xz, tar.xz, txz and 7z.

    Hi ,
    It would be really useful to have support for the newer lzma(2) based compression algorithms.
    Or to have some option to add that support myself.

    Is this really not possible currently?

    Hello,

    No problem. I moved it over.

    And yes, this is something we want to tackle and are working towards. We probably can't add it into a minor release like 4.0.x, but keep an eye out for a larger minor release (4.1). We don't have a set date, but it is one of the things we'd like to do in that release.

    It's not something you can add yourself due to how the current libraries are implemented.
