• New! Files pane for file management and sharing: Be more productive with the new file management features in WinZip Mac 6. Use the new Files pane to browse, select, zip, and unzip your local, network, or cloud files easily without having to move between Finder and browsers to hunt through folders or multiple cloud services. Delete and rename files in the cloud and between accounts and drives. Use the new File pane context menu to get info about a file, do a Quick Look, see Package Contents for Mac application files, and much more. Protect your privacy by encrypting files before they are saved to your Mac, uploaded to the cloud, or shared via email.

• Enhanced! Unzip from more file types: WinZip Mac 6 makes it easy to unzip more compressed file types including: gzip files (.gz, .tgz), Unix tar files (.tar), Unix compressed files (.z, .tz, .taz), LZMA2 compressed files (.xz, .txz), BZip files (.bz, .bz2. .tbz, .tbz2), and Virtual Disk files (vdisk).

• Enhanced! Zipx File Compression: With new LZMA2 support, WinZip Mac 6 can deliver smaller compressed file sizes, especially when zipping files that have some amount of compression already, such as Microsoft Office files.

• ENHANCED! MP3 Compression: Keep more music on your phone or on a cloud service, or share playlists more easily. WinZip now compresses your MP3 files by 15 - 20% on average with no loss in quality, thanks to the enhanced Zipx format.

Unusable on High Sierra

Recently formatted MacBook (bought on 2013) and installed High Sierra. Almost nothing installed, try to install Winzip, but unfortunately it is unusable, all I get when I try to use it is a dialog saying:”WinZip needs permission in order for the Files pane to provide access to your file. Please slect the file “null” an dthen click Allow." I have no idea what it wants. It is a shame, it worked so nicely before moving to High Sierra :-(
To be fair HighSierra has caused all sorts of trouble, so Winzip is likely just another victim of the issues of this release...

Doesn't work on High Sierra

I can't believe that after almost a month, there is still not an update for High Sierra. I would "undestand" for a small startup company for their little 1.99$ software.. but not from WinZip. The response from support is "I received notices about this earlier and have already posted a bug report about it. Our developers are working on the issue. I do not know how soon they will have an update ready. I do not have any suggestions for use on High Sierra, as it simply seems to be incompatible right now."

So.. That's it?

Broken under High Sierra

I echo the comments below regarding the app being completely usless under High Sierra. I emailed WinZip several weeks ago and received the same “no ETA” “engineers working on it” - not sure why with the Apple Beta program WinZip couldn’t have discovered that they were incompatible with the new file format months ago.
