Aladdin Systems Inc.
has announced the release of StuffIt InstallerMaker 7.1. With this new version, developers can create one single installer that supports both Mac OS X 10.1 and “Classic” versions of Mac OS.
In addition to the ability to create a “Hybrid” installer that works for both Mac OS X and older versions of the Mac operating system, other changes to StuffIt InstallerMaker include:
More error control — Ability to ignore errors returned by a delete task.
New Universal ILoc and Guide for writing InstallerMaker locations — documentation included tells which resource IDs InstallerMaker already uses so users can pick a unique ID for the new locations.
Destination path helper application — two new applications, “Destination Path.Classic” and “Destination Path.Carbon” are used to get the result path returned when a particular destination and domain are selected. Just choose a destination and a domain from the menu bar and the path to the location will be displayed.
Start up picture from a file — Easily add a start up picture from a file with scripting.
Enhanced permissions for directories — InstallerMaker now sets group write permission for directories that are created. Helpful for users with multiple administrator accounts.
InstallerMaker 7.1 requires a PowerPC-based Mac with System 7.1.1 or newer, 12MB hard drive space and 8MB RAM.
Developers can download a free trial version of StuffIt InstallerMaker 7.1 from
the InstallerMaker Web site. Pricing and licensing is available directly through
Aladdin Developer Sales.
