On the heels of StuffIt Deluxe 8.0’s release,
Aladdin Systems Inc.
on Monday released StuffIt Standard 8.0, a new version of their compression utility for Mac OS X. The new version features faster compression, DropBox filters, access to newsgroup and Windows formats .yenc and .cab, and integrated HTML help.
The StuffIt Standard 8.0 package includes StuffIt Expander, DropStuff, DropZip and DropTar, to enable users to easy compress and decompress files using different popular compression schemes. StuffIt Expander is the free decompression utility not only for StuffIt format but for .zip, .tar, .rar and other formats as well. DropStuff, DropZip and DropTar all do what their name implies through Drag & Drop application of files or folders on their icons.
Stuffit Standard 8.0 adds faster compression using StuffIt X, the new Aladdin-crafted compression format. An improved DropStuff interface makes it easier to add encryption and other features; you can also create archives by filtering folders that match custom search criteria.
StuffIt Standard 8.0 costs US$49.99; upgrades for registered users are available at a reduced price. System requirements call for Mac OS X v10.1.5 or higher; 20MB of disk space; 64MB RAM.
