ShrinkWrap 3.5 Adds Features & Speed -- Aladdin Systems has released Chad Magendanz's ShrinkWrap 3.5, the latest version of the company's widely used utility for creating and managing disk images. ShrinkWrap 3.5 offers support for HFS Plus volumes, Navigation Services, an option to copy only used blocks, various interface enhancements, and the capability to access disk images nested within disk images. Version 3.5 also enhances ShrinkWrap's compatibility with the NDIF disk image format used by Apple's Disk Copy, now supporting segmented images split into multiple files and also creating Disk Copy images two to five times faster than Disk Copy itself. ShrinkWrap can also optionally use StuffIt compression and 40-bit encryption, automatically launch an installer when a disk image is mounted (perfect for software distribution), and even access disk images and drive containers used by Virtual PC, Adaptec's Toast mastering software, Hard Disk ToolKit, Apple's DOS Cards, Insignia PC emulation products, and more. ShrinkWrap 3.5 is a $15 upgrade for owners of ShrinkWrap 3.0; otherwise, Aladdin sells the product online for $30. A 1.1 MB 30-day demo is also available. [GD]
