Please add 7z support

This file format is very popular and I would like to see this archive type in netbeans too.

Problem with gz

A friend of mine created 3 archives with mint linux. gz, tar and tar.gz. Everything is fine with tar.gz and tar but the third one 3.gz doesn't show me the correct file. I expand 3.gz and it shows me only 3 and I only can open the file as text. But it is an image and has an other name.

Tested with Linux and Cygwin generated tars and gz

Whatever the Apache Compress library handles should be OK. Well, to a degree since the library offers more functionality than is supported by the plugin.

problem with TAR

Hi,

Works fine with GZ, but cannot open TAR archives.
A screenshot : http://tof.canardpc.com/view/5446e975-7978-4bda-88e2-7b0569925a90.jpg

Nothing in Netbeans logs.
Archives created with 7-Zip 9.20 on Win XP SP3 X86.

Any idea ?
Thx.

[edit]
Archives created with TugZip 3.5.0.0 are recognized by your plugin.
Probably a bug with Apache Commons Compress or 7-Zip ?

[edit]
Okayyy, TAR archives created with 7-Zip cannot be opened by TugZip :)
It's probably a bug with 7-Zip.
