ZIP() is Dead! Long live Zipper().. oh and UnZipper()

As part of introducing a new UnZip feature and script command – UnZipper(), will also be taking the opportunity to introduce a new Zip command – Zipper(), as the mirror.

Zipper() will replace the current Zip() command. Whilst Zipper() is slightly less feature rich around encryption, don’t worry we have a plan for that, and we aim to maintain all the features of Zip(), just structured in a different way.

Zipper(), and UnZipper() will be with you shortly, and there will be at least a 6 month overlap before the existing Zip() command is depreciated.

We will also announce the feature work around, in a few weeks.
