Getting ZipArchive to support Unified API?

Hi Everyone,

A few devs have asked the Author "Simon Hu" about supporting the unified API in the component review as their's no way to contact him. The links on the component simply link to the Objective-C library he used to bind his component. Does anyone know how to contact Simon to get this component updated?

    We are working with all of our 3rd party submitters to get Unified support for as many components as possible. I will keep an eye on this one as it seems popular.

  • Hello i've the same problem. Furthermore there is another i suppose very common component for QE sca called "scandit" ( that hasn't released the unified version yet.

    Expecially for the zip component could you suggest an alternative because it doesn't seem to be too much around to replace "ziparchive" in the worst case.

    Hey @BillHolmes‌ any updates on this Component? Seems several developers cannot reach the component author so they are using the component review section to ask for Unified support. Thanks

    We have been really busy preparing for the Xamarin.iOS 8.6 Unified release. You will see many components released on the same day we release 8.6 with Unified support.

    At this time ZipArchive is not in that list. It is maintained by an external author and I am still attempting to reach them.

    Is there any news about it? Usually no news is good news... not in this case!
