Aladdin Releases Needed Update To Stuffit Expander/DropStuff
Aladdin has released updaters for Stuffit Expander 5.1 and DropStuff With Expander 5.1 bringing the utilities to version 5.1.2. The new updates fix bugs that affected many Stuffit 5.1 users. According to Aladdin:

Responding to recent issues with Aladdin DropStuff(tm) 5.1 and StuffIt Expander(tm) 5.1, Aladdin releases Aladdin DropStuff 5.1.2 and StuffIt Expander 5.1.2. Both are FREE updates available for download directly from Aladdin's update web page at: http://www.aladdinsys.com/updates/index.html

The DropStuff 5.1.2 update fixes a bug in the StuffIt Engine(tm) and Power Plug (in PowerPC machines only) that would make Expander 5.1 falsely report a MacBinary encoded StuffIt 3.x or 4.x file as a corrupted or invalid archive. With the Engine fix, Expander 5.1.2 now decodes MacBinary encoded StuffIt 3.x or 4.x StuffIt archives.

The StuffIt Expander 5.1.2 update includes the following changes to StuffIt Expander 5.1:

Fixes a bug whereby Expander would not expand a StuffIt archive when double clicked. Double clicking on an archive would launch DropStuff, if DropStuff was installed, or display a "StuffIt Deluxe could not be found" error message. Double clicking on an archive now calls StuffIt Expander
5.1.2 to expand and decode the file.

Fixes a bug where Expander incompletely decoded a MacBinary encoded Zip file. Expander would decompress the file, but the user needed to use Expander a second time to de-MacBinary encode the file. StuffIt Expander 5.1.2 correctly expands and decodes MacBinary encoded Zip files.

Aladdin encourages its customers to update their software and install the 5.1.2 updates.

Download the latest version of DropStuff.
