updated 03:20 am EDT, Fri October 19, 2007

Compress Files 3.0

Apimac has released a new version of its compression tool, Compress Files 3.0, that supports the creation of XAR archives. XAR, or eXtensible ARchive format, is a way to compress files that was created within the OpenDarwin project and will be also used in Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard for software installation routines (replacing gzipped pax files). With the release of Compress Files 3.0, now Mac OS X users have an easy to use tool to compress files in this new format.


The new release also includes support for 7zip and encrypted 7zip archives; support for AppleScript; Spanish user interface localization; user interface improvements and various code optimizations. The tool can also create TAR archives; Gzip compressed archives; Bzip2 compressed archives and compressed and encrypted disk images.

Compress Files lets you omit Mac-specific invisible files when creating zip files, which can be useful for transferring archives cross-platform.
