StuffIt Deluxe 5.0 Announced -- Aladdin Systems has announced StuffIt Deluxe 5.0, a major release of their popular compression program. StuffIt Deluxe 5.0's main new feature is a new compression format that's 20 percent smaller and provides compatibility with Windows. Also included in StuffIt Deluxe 5.0 are support for MacBinary III, compatibility with Mac OS 8.5, additional "Archive Via Rename" functionality for .hqx and .bin, fast conversion of self-extracting archives to StuffIt archives, and new support for Outlook Express and Mailsmith in the "Stuff and Mail" feature. Aladdin expects to ship StuffIt Deluxe 5.0 by the end of October for an estimated street price of $79.95; user group pricing will be $49.95. Existing StuffIt Deluxe and DropStuff owners - plus owners of AutoDoubler, DiskDoubler and the Eudora Productivity Toolkit - can upgrade to StuffIt Deluxe 5.0 for $29.95 through 31-Mar-99 with proof of purchase (such as your Aladdin registration number, or by faxing a photocopy of a receipt, manual, or disk to Customer Service at 831/761-6206). StuffIt Deluxe requires a 68020 Mac or later with 8 MB of RAM and System 7.5.3 or later. [ACE]
