Not only has Aladdin Systems updated StuffIt Deluxe to version 7.0, it’s also updated its free StuffIt Expander utility accordingly.
Like its “big brother,” StuffIt Deluxe, StuffIt Expander lets you open compressed or encoded files from Mac, Windows, Unix or Linux. It works with a variety of file formats, including the new archive format, StuffIt X (.sitx). Pronounced “ex,” the file format combines compression and security. It adds 512 bit encryption, up to 30 percent better compression than other formats, error correction, support for larger archive sizes, and support for long file names.
StuffIt Expander 7.0 is available as a download for Mac OS 8.6 – 9.x (a 5.5MB .sit file) and Mac OS X (a 4.8MB .sit file). Go to the product Web site for download links.
