Subject DO NOT REPLY [Bug 45429] New: the zip package should support "more modern" zip features

           Summary: the zip package should support "more modern" zip
                    features
           Product: Ant
           Version: 1.8Alpha (nightly)
          Platform: All
               URL: http://www.info-zip.org/doc/appnote-iz-latest.zip
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P2
         Component: Core
        AssignedTo: notifications@ant.apache.org
        ReportedBy: bodewig@apache.org


Ant's code has been written against the 970311 spec with an eye on InfoZIP's C
implementation for zip 2.x.  The latest version is 20040528 with six or seven
revisions between the two.

zip 3.x introduces a different support mechanism for UTF-8 encoded filenames
that probably should be detected by Ant and taken as a hint to not use native
encoding.  It also has support for files bigger than 2 GByte and some other
stuff.

Since an archive using that features will require a recent client to extract,
we should probably only create archives using them when specifically asked for
it - but the archive reading code should detect and support them.
