Open source IZarc equivalent

In my quest for always more open source software, I used to be a little disappointed on the side of compression/uncompression software. Sure, there is 7-Zip, but it doesn’t support shitloads of format, whereas on the freeware side I had found this IZarc that could open like every compression format I could met. Well, I finally found out, quite randomly while browsing PortableApps, that there is an open source equivalent for IZarc: PeaZip. The source isn’t very obvious to find, thus here is the link I dug out for you ;): PeaZip source packages on SourceForge
Ok, I still use 7-Zip because all the formats it supports are enough for me. But if I ever need more, now I’ll now where to look…
NB: it works on Linux too.
