Feature request: LZMA algorithm for ZIP archives or ZPAQ

Post by przemhb »

Currently Reflector uses proved, fast, but outdated and inefficient Deflate algorithm for ZIP archives. ZIP, as a container, could also use LZMA algorithm, the same 7ZIP does. It's much more efficient and still fast.
Could it be added as an option or default algorithm?

Another, possibly interesting option, could be open source ZPAQ "Incremental Journaling Backup Utility and Archiver"
Designed especially with incremental backups in mind. Please check its features.
