StuffIt Deluxe 5.1 & Expander 5.1.3

Send Article to a Friend

StuffIt Deluxe 5.1 & Expander 5.1.3 -- Aladdin Systems has released a free update to StuffIt Deluxe 5.0 that rolls in enhancements to DropStuff 5.1.2 and StuffIt Expander 5.1.2, plus fixes several bugs. The StuffIt Deluxe 5.1 Updater also improves file compression and decompression performance for those who have not already updated to DropStuff 5.1.2 (See "StuffIt Expander & DropStuff 5.1.2" in TidBITS-476).

In addition, Aladdin has released StuffIt Expander 5.1.3, which, although essentially unchanged from Expander 5.1.2, offers a preference to control how StuffIt (.sit) and Private File (.pf) files are processed. The changes should help users of Microsoft Internet Explorer, which ignores Internet Config settings for post-processor applications and instead tries to open downloaded files based on their parent applications. As a result, downloaded files are opened in StuffIt Deluxe rather than StuffIt Expander, or not decoded at all. The StuffIt Expander 5.1.3 installer is a 743K download. [JLC]
