Build 2999 - password-protected compression

Hi folks,

Here's the second preview build of v1.2.6: ... (2999).zip

What's new:
  • Compress.../Compress To... now have a proper dialog with an option to protect a target archive with a password.
    AES-256 is employed to encrypt the archive contents.
    NB! This is a non-standard (if this word is even applicable to the Zip format) which is not supported by the macOS's built-in Archive Utility.
    AFAIK it can deal only with the ancient "PKWARE zipcrypt", which is easily cracked and is basically useless.
  • Two more dialogs (namely Copy and Compress) now have path autocompletion.
    I decided not to override Tab for completion in these cases since it messes with focus-based navigation too much.
    Instead, a standard hotkey for completion is used, which is Alt+Esc by default.
  • Fixed several issues with the in-place renaming editor, now it should be less flickery and more responsive.
Your feedback is welcome.
