R10Cipher 2 adds file encryption, interface tweaks

R10Cipher 2 released

Arten Science has released a major update to R10Cipher, its encryption utility. The program works on Mac, Windows and Linux systems, and is primarily used to secure text through 128-bit Blowfish encryption; deciphering content requires both R10 and a shared key. The app is also said to offer the advantage of a low footprint, which means it can be run from USB flash drives.

The second version incorporates file encryption for the first time, and supports dragging and dropping multiple items for batch operations. Arten notes that "almost any" kind of file can be encrypted, and that the decryption process simply requires double-clicking on a file to bring up the key dialog. The company has separately added menu options to mirror the toolbar buttons, and a feedback view which shows operation progress. Lastly, slight adjustments have been made to allow Windows 7 compatibility.

R10Cipher 2 costs $20 in a single-user license, but is free as an upgrade or $203 in corporate distribution. Macs require Mac OS X 10.4 and a 1GHz processor.
