7zip version used #400

I noticed Keka uses 7zip v16.02, or rather p7zip based on 7zip 16.02 I guess. It seems severely outdated. It doesn't seem like p7zip has been updated in a while. I think myspace has disappeared and isn't working on it anymore. I can't believe there's nobody working on it. Isn't that an issue? Like, aren't there many new features and bugfixes that 7zip users on macOS (and *nix) are missing out on?

Yep, using p7zip 16.02 with all available security and fix patches. Would be awesome to have an updated version of p7zip but someone has to do the work. Maybe starting a repository would be a first place to start.

p7zip 16.02 is the stable version offered by brew, and seems to be the latest version on Unix.

Yes, I get that wesinator, I just find it hard to believe nobody is working on an updated version. I'm not a programmer so I wouldn't know the first thing.
