My Parallel Archiver version 3.65 is here...

In this release of my Parallel archiver i have just implemented and 
compiled the Dynamic Link Libraries for new release of Zstandard v0.8.1 
for 32 bit and 64 bit mingw compilers , you will find the Dynamic Link 
Libraries inside the zip file with the corresponding Object Pascal 
interface called ZSTDStream.pas that i have wrote and that you will find 
inside the zip file.

Please look at the test_pzstd.pas demo inside the zip file for Parallel 
ZStandard compression , now the compressionLevel goes from 1 to 19

ZStandard compression is one of the best compression.

Whats new in new release of Zstandard v0.8.1:

- Final compression format

New streaming API
Changed : --ultra now enables levels beyond 19
Changed : -i# now selects benchmark time in second
Fixed : ZSTD_compress* can now compress > 4 GB in a single pass, 
reported by Nick Terrell
Fixed : speed regression on specific patterns (#272)
Fixed : support for Z_SYNC_FLUSH, by @dak-evanti-ru (#291)
Fixed : ICC compilation, by @inikep

Now my Parallel archiver supports the following Parallel compression 

Parallel LZO , Parallel LZ4 , Parallel Zlib , Parallel Bzip , Parallel 
LZMA and Parallel Zstd compression algorithms for both the 32 bit and 64 
bit compilers.

And now my Parallel archiver is NUMA-aware and NUMA efficient and it 
minimizes efficiently the contention and it scales well.

I have thoroughly tested and stabilized more my parallel archiver for 
many years, and now i think that it is more stable and efficient, so i 
think that you can be more confident with it.

Important note:

Notice that i have not used a global password , but every file can be 
encrypted with a different password using my Parallel AES encryption 
with 256 bit keys. So the security level is this:

- When you encrypt , the content of the files will be encrypted but the 
names of the files and directories will not be encrypted, But if you 
want to encrypt also the names of the files and directories using 
Parallel AES encryption with 256 bit keys, please compress first into an 
archive, and after that encrypt all the archive into another archive.

- But when you encrypt , you can update the files with the update() 
method without giving the right password, and you can delete the files 
without giving the right password, but my level of security is that you 
can not access the encrypted data without giving the right password.
