- WinRAR extracts files with invalid UTF-8 names inside of ZIP archives, even though their names may include arbitrary text after unpacking. - Bugs fixes: a) Doesn't crash when extracting some of the broken RAR4 archives; b) "Settings/Viewer/Unpack everything for" isn't ignored for files matching "Settings/Archives/File types to open as archives first" masks.
