  • ***** Warning : Some new features may break the backward compatibility for your scripts.
    Please carefully read the readme file.
  • Add the ability to delete by Index, name and regular expression. This feature is
    performed by the method delete(), which uses the optional parameters
  • Add the ability to extract by regular expression. To extract by regexp you must use the method
    extract(), with the option PCLZIP_OPT_BY_EREG or PCLZIP_OPT_BY_PREG
    (depending if you want to use ereg() or preg_match() syntax) followed by the
    regular expression pattern.
  • Add the ability to extract by index, directly with the extract() method. This is a
    code improvment of the extractByIndex() method.
  • Add the ability to extract by name. To extract by name you must use the method
    extract(), with the option PCLZIP_OPT_BY_NAME followed by the filename to
    extract or an array of filenames to extract. To extract all a folder, use the folder
    name rather than the filename with a '/' at the end.
  • Add the ability to add files without compression. This is done with a new attribute
  • Add the attribute PCLZIP_OPT_EXTRACT_AS_STRING, which allow to extract a file directly
    in a string without using any file (or temporary file).
  • Add constant PCLZIP_SEPARATOR for static configuration of filename separators in a single string.
    The default separator is now a comma (,) and not any more a blank space.
    THIS BREAK THE BACKWARD COMPATIBILITY : Please check if this may have an impact with
    your script.
  • Improve algorythm performance by removing the use of temporary files when adding or
    extracting files in an archive.
  • Add (correct) detection of empty filename zipping. This can occurs when the removed
    path is the same
    as a zipped dir. The dir is not zipped (['status'] = filtered), only its content.
  • Add better support for windows paths (thanks for help from This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it ).
  • Corrected bug : When the archive file already exists with size=0, the add() method
    fails. Corrected in 2.0.
  • Remove the use of OS_WINDOWS constant. Use php_uname() function rather.
  • Control the order of index ranges in extract by index feature.
  • Change the internal management of folders (better handling of internal flag).
