    3 cheers, it's been a long, LONG beta for probably the best free (donations welcome) compression software around - ok many other free ones can do 7Z, but won't be up to the very latest with 7Z.

    Actually, best is relative, the LZMA/LZMA2 that is the default mode in 7Z format has high compression, but poor speed.
    There are programs which compress better, ones which compress faster, but 7Z is probably the best open format.

    Also, the other claim to fame of 7-Zip is better zip compression than most other ZIP compressors, while still retaining standard ZIP compatibility.
