Version 9.20.1-1 of p7zip has been uploaded to the 64-bit distribution.
This is the first release of p7zip for x86_64.

p7zip is the Unix port of 7-Zip, a file archiver that archives with
very high compression ratios.  It supports packing/unpacking 7z, zip, gzip
bzip2, xz, tar, and wim archives.  It supports unpacking of arj, cab, chm,
cpio, dmg, hfs, lzh, lzma, wim, xar, z, nsis, deb, rpm, msi, udf, iso, ntfs,
fat, vhd, and mbr archives.  This version does NOT support rar archives.

Changes relative to the existing 32-bit package:
- Using a C version of a CRC checksum routine instead of assembly to
  compile in 64 bit
- New maintainer, minor Cygwin-packaging changes
