Code:

VERSION 1.1.3.4 [2017-02-02]
* Added support for MemPack thus tar.zst archives can be created.

Downloaded from your Wiki Link.
For my tests the plugin creates archives about 10% larger than 7zip.
Using 7zip in Ultra mode and the plugin in compression level 19.
The zst plugin is much faster as 7zip but I don't see any other benefit.
WinRAR even tops the 7zip result in compression ratio and speed.
My test file was a 440MB ISO file which contains x-ray images and other files.

Horst.Epp,
Zstandard is meant to compress files as fast as possible so you can have some compression without (ideally) any perceptible delay.

Yes, I understand,
but WinRAR for me is faster and compresses even better.
Its not free of course, but the Life-time license years ago was not expensive.

While I have not personally tried it out, Zstandard should compress at ~200 MB/s per core, so (unless you are using NVMe or a RAMdisk) the limit should be the storage speed. WinRAR reaches ~42 MB/s in its fastest mode here.

To Bebbo,
I am not concern about compression rate or speed. The reason I installed the zst plugin is because I encountered some Zstandard files and I wanted TC to be able to unpack them.
Unfortunately the plugin is causing TC to crash.
Thank you.

I did try out that 7-zip fork, and it does not support zstd streams, the author added support for zstd inside 7z archives the same way you could use deflate or lzma, that plugin will not open/unpack zstd files

edit my error
apparently the full version does support for creation of zstd files , the codec pack does not support standalone zstd

This plugin behaves very strange when detect archive type by content is enabled, which is enabled by default. Every file can be entered via ctrl+page down. So essentially plugin detects every file as a Zstandard archive. I am on the latest version 1.1.3.5
Can anyone confirm this behavior?
