More compression format support with 7z

without comments

MyDLP was supporting only two compression algorithms; ZIP and RAR. ZIP has been supported with usage of OTP’s ZIP library. But, to unRAR a compressed file, we were executing the “unrar” binary.

After several talks with users, it became clearer  that our support for compressed file formats was a little bit poor. And we decided that we need more.

With integration of 7z, several compression formats started to be supported by MyDLP.  ZIP, RAR, CAB, ARJ, GZIP, BZIP2, TAR, CPIO, RPM and DEB; now contents for all of them could be inspected by MyDLP.
