What's new in this version:

New Features:
- Added support for macOS 10.14 Mojave’s Dark Mode
- BetterZip now has a menu bar icon onto which you can drag items and that has a shortcut menu with the most important functions. Activate the menu bar icon in the BetterZip preferences on the tab “General”
- You can now specify in extraction presets what BetterZip should do, if there are conflicts with already existing files or folders
- BetterZip now supports zipx files that use xz compression as well as WinZip split files (z01, z02, …)
- Added an option to not “show folders” when in flat list view. Toggle this option via the View menu
- Added a Polish translation

Enhancements:
- Filenames containing numbers are now sorted numerically like in Finder
- The “Replace File” dialog shows more clearly which file or folder is older and which is newer
- Changed the logic of the option “Quit after last window closed”: only archive windows will trigger the quitting, not the preferences, transcript, or queue windows
- Show combined progress of all windows (not only queue) in Dock tile (and menubar item)
- Added a button for testing the archive in the warning message window when an error occurs during opening
- Added an AppleScript command to get the selected item paths in an archive window
- The Drop Bar is now forced to the front when dragging files over it
- Add a setting to not show the queue window when queue operations are started. Turn it on in BetterZip > Preferences > Advanced
- The encoding of text files is now automatically detected when previewing text files in the preview sidebar
- You can now select multiple files in the File > Open panel

Bug Fixes:
- Dropping files (especially a mix of supported archives and non-archive file types) onto the BetterZip Dock icon did not work reliably
- When switching view mode without a sorting column selected in the table, BetterZip could crash
- BetterZip will no longer allow to extract zip files outside of the destination folder. (Thanks, Meituan Financial Security Team!)
- Fixed the opening and extraction of plain xz archives
- For some users the BetterZip Finder button did not work
- Extracting multi-part, password protected rar archives with CRC errors could lead to an endless password entry loop
- When editing a file type in Preferences > Files and clicking Ok without making any changes in the window, the type disappeared from the list
- PDF files showed only the first page in the preview sidebar
- Compressing a folder with a space character at the end of the name didn’t work
