This One Goes to 11: Smith Micro Debuts StuffIt Deluxe 11

by , 4:45 PM EDT, September 21st, 2006

It was move that probably made Nigel Tufnel smile: Smith Micro on Thursday issued StuffIt Deluxe 11.0, a new version of the data compression software that's a Universal Binary capable of running on Intel- or PowerPC-based Macs. The update also improves the software's speed, especially on dual-processor Macs, and adds a StuffIt Archive Manager that groups related files into what Smith Micro calls Collections.

The Collections keep similar files in a single list view, regardless of their location on a hard drive, to make finding them easier. Collections can be customized according to specific search criteria that can include any file type. The Archive Manager is also integrated with the Spotlight search technology in Mac OS X v10.4 "Tiger," enabling dynamic updating of Collections.

Upgrades from previous versions are US$29.99, an offer good until March 31, 2007. The full software is $79.99 and requires Mac OS X v10.3, with v10.4 required to take advantage of StuffIt's integration with Spotlight and Automator.

Thanks to Macworld's Peter Cohen for the heads-up, and for the Spinal Tap reference that we so shamelessly riffed on.
