Aladdin Expands StuffIt Deluxe 7.0.1 — Soon after introducing a new StuffIt compression format, Aladdin has released an update to its system-wide utility for compressing and expanding files. StuffIt Deluxe 7.0.1 improves compatibility with Mac OS X 10.2, speeds up the Fast Compression option of the new StuffIt X file format, and adds support for Finder command keys while using the Dvorak key layout. The utility also adds support for Intego’s VirusBarrier. The StuffIt Deluxe 7.0.1 updater is free for registered users and is a 7.9 MB download for the Mac OS X version, or a 2.8 MB download for those running Mac OS 8.6 through Mac OS 9.
Aladdin also recently released StuffIt Expander 7.0, part of the StuffIt Standard Edition package (formerly known as StuffIt Light). Due to a security vulnerability discovered in StuffIt Expander 6.52 and earlier, Apple offers StuffIt Expander 7.0 by itself via Software Update. [JLC]
