      yay, a new stable 7-zip version that is no longer a beta or an alpha

      Looks as though we’ll have to wait a short while for the standalone console version!

        yeah, newest p7zip currently at 16.02+dfsg-8 via debian/ubuntu.
        There will no doubt be dependancy changes and testing involved, so expect a wait…
