QuaZip 1.x uses different paths and file names.
This is intended because 0.x was a terrible mess and there was no better way to fix it.
QuaZip 1.x should be installed in parallel with 0.x. There should be no conflicts,
as it was designed to allow coinstallation.

Perhaps a new package quazip1 should be created instead, I'm not sure what Arch Linux

for example.

for more information. This guide is also included in 1.1 released today.
