StuffIt 6.5.1 Adds Mac OS X Improvements -- Aladdin Systems recently released StuffIt Deluxe 6.5.1 and StuffIt Lite 6.5.1 (in English, Japanese, German, and French), making the utilities more convenient for Mac OS X users. The Deluxe version incorporates the StuffIt CM (Contextual Menu), providing access to many of StuffIt's features by Control-clicking files in the Finder, and improves AppleScript support. Both versions also launch "packaged" applications properly, and fix a problem with version checking. The updates also improve interaction with virus protection applications, adding recognition of the Mac OS X versions of Norton Anti-Virus and McAfee's Virex and enabling users to select a different anti-virus program. Both sets of utilities now require StuffIt Engine 6.5. StuffIt Deluxe 6.5.1 is available now as a free update for owners of version 6.5, or as a $20 upgrade from any previous version. StuffIt Lite 6.5.1 - which incorporates StuffIt Expander, DropStuff, DropZip, and DropTar - includes free updates to DropStuff and DropZip for registered owners of version 5.0 or higher of those utilities; the utilities can also be registered separately, or as a bundle for $50. StuffIt Expander 6.5.1 remains free. Also released today was version 6.5.1 of the StuffIt Engine Software Developer's Kit, which enables developers to build support for StuffIt's compression and encoding capabilities into their applications. License fees vary by project; a trial version is available. [JLC]
