Impression, the archival utility for Mac OS X that is specially designed to support data spanned across multiple optical drives, has changed hands. The new developer has begun by releasing a Universal binary (v3.02). It costs $19.95 to register.
Originally developed by Steve elliott of the Babel Company, Impression is now being worked on by Jason Slack of “I Need Your Software!”
“Jason has taken Impression’s mantle after my three years of pioneering work developing and enhancing the best optical media-spanning archiving solution for Mac OS X. He has some great plans to enhance Impression that will surely please the Mac, Photography and DAM communities,” said Elliott in a recent announcement.
Impression can encrypt disk images, segments large files to fill disks, uses bookmarks to manage archives, features general regular expression parser (grep)-based file exclusion, preserves HFS metadata, supports iCal-based scheduling and more.
A limited demo version of Impression is available for download.
