Utility to extract Winrar 5.x archives

Forums: 

Debian has a rar program but it does not extract newer Winrar 5.x archives. Does anyone know of a program to do this?

I run KDE in Debian stable/Wheezy and KDE's default "Ark" GUI program that manipulates archives opens those archives just fine.

I would assume GNOME would have an equivalent to Ark. If not you can just install the "ark" package without installing the entire KDE system (it'll install some libraries and dependencies, but not the full KDE desktop).
