Support for UTF-8 in Zip-Ada

A few days ago Gautier de Montmollin mentioned that he’d added support for UTF-8 archive entries in version 41 of his Zip-Ada library, and as can be seen from revision 99, he wasn’t kidding around.

The changes in version 41 are:

  • Support for Unicode (UTF-8) entry names within archives; see: Zip, Zip.Create, Zip_Streams
  • Zip_Streams: Made names more consistent, previous names preserved with pragma Obscolescent

There doesn’t appear to be an actual version 41 release announcement (yet), so while we’re waiting for that, why not visit Gautier’s identi.ca stream and subscribe?
