Apart from zip files, it doesn't offer any more support than the standdard linux archiver provided with mint releases
--and for zip if you wanted 7zip archiver, because you may be used to its methods, there is one 7zip directly avilable on Linuxhttp://7-zip.org/
7-Zip is open source software. Most of the source code is under the GNU LGPL license. The unRAR code is under a mixed license: GNU LGPL + unRAR restrictions. Check license information here: 7-Zip license.
You can use 7-Zip on any computer, including a computer in a commercial organization. You don't need to register or pay for 7-Zip.
