    Allright, another year, another Stuffit version! Now, does anyone know if their contextual menu still blocks all use of the finder while its working? And did they ever finally put all their preferences for ALL of their programs in one place, so I don't have to specify in like three places "Delete file after unstuffing it". Or tell it in three places "Don't mount disk images automatically"?

    And finally, I notice you STILL can't get Stuffit Expander without having to download and install their entire stuffit standard software. I don't want all that c***. I just need expander. Sorry, can't get it. Guess I'll stick with v7 that came with OS X...

    .Ace archives?

    Can this version finally give Mac users a non-command line interface for decompressing .ace archives (which are popular on Windows and are common in P2P situations)?????? Anyone know? I cannot get any response from Allume on this question.

    I don't think so, since they didn't change the file format. So the old version will do nicely, most likely.
