After a mere four years, I have updated 7-ade. Version 1.1 incorporates additional rule actions requested by Santo Nucifora (back in 2018) and José junior, as well as a number of fixes for specific archive contents. Unwrap expansion is now applied to RPM files, so long as the inner file does not use Zstandard compression, as 7-Zip does not support that format. The rule specification is also tweaked to remove the need to maintain a list of rule names in a separate setting, although the old format remains valid indefinitely. The ability to view debug output in DebugView is now documented, in case anyone needs help debugging rules or otherwise desires to investigate unexpected behaviour.
