StuffIt Standard v11 ships

Smith Micro Software today released StuffIt Standard Edition 11.0, a Universal Binary release of the bundled compression solution that provides native support for Intel-based Macs, and features a number of improvements to its core compression engine. The improvements deliver faster compression and decompression speeds--especially on dual-processor or dual-core Macs--according to the company. Version 11 expands the Zip format support in the Finder, supports the creation of encrypted Zip archives and provides Mac users with the ability to open "strong encrypted" Windows Zip archives that originated on a PC. StuffIt's improved Zip compression technology permits users to create Zip archives that are smaller than those created by the Finder, while retaining full compatibility with all existing Zip applications on both Macs and Windows-based computers. StuffIt Standard Edition 11.0 is $50. Registered users can upgrade to StuffIt Deluxe for $30, or upgrade to StuffIt Standard Edition v11 for $15 (through March 31, 2007).

Stuffit Standard includes DropStuff, which creates self-expanding files for Mac and Windows, .zip archives for Windows users, and .tar archives with StuffIt, BZIP, GZIP, or UNIX compression. In addition, it allows users to create dropboxes that can send and retrieve files from a .Mac iDisk; the ability to schedule backups to run automatically, integrated CD/DVD burning; split archives across multiple disks, and use strong 512-bit encryption and password protection for data privacy.

Last week, the company launched StuffIt Deluxe v11 and the free "Universal" StuffIt Expander v11. [direct StuffIt Expander Link]
