StuffIt Expander 4.0.1, DropStuff 4.0

Send Article to a Friend

StuffIt Expander 4.0.1, DropStuff 4.0 -- Last week, Aladdin Systems released new versions of their popular utilities StuffIt Expander and DropStuff with Expander Enhancer. StuffIt Expander 4.0.1 - which decodes and decompresses a variety of online file formats - continues to be free, and now offers much better performance on Power Macs and better handling of split and segmented files. DropStuff with Expander Enhancer enables users to compress and BinHex files and significantly augments StuffIt Expander's decoding abilities (including handling most PC and Unix file formats). DropStuff 4.0 also offers improved performance on Power Macs and better handling of segmented files. DropStuff is $30 shareware, and (though the documentation doesn't seem to say anything about it) registered users of previous versions of DropStuff can apparently continue to use their registration numbers. Aladdin's sites have been hard to reach, but the following URLs should be accurate, and the software should appear on Info-Mac mirrors in the near future. [GD]
