DropDMG Updated With Internet Enabled Disk Images

C-Command has released an update for DropDMG, bringing it to version 2.1. DropDMG is a utility designed for creating .dmg and .img disk images. The update features performance enhancements including the ability to create Internet enabled disk images and simplified drag modifiers. According to C-Command:

DropDMG 2.1 is now available.

DropDMG is the easiest way to create ".dmg" and ".img" disk images on Mac OS X. It can encrypt images and post-process them with GZip or MacBinary. It also supports segmented images and images that auto-open when you mount them.

All the options are available from AppleScript. DropDMG is robust and has no trouble handling folders with spaces, quotation marks, dollar signs, or other "special" characters. It even works without Mac OS Xis optional "BSD Subsystem" installation. Full documentation is included in PDF and Apple Help formats.

New in this Version:

  • Remembers recent and favorite destination folders
  • Can create Internet-enabled disk images
  • Simplified the drag modifiers, the preferences window, and the scripting interface
  • Can move the source folder to the trash after creating an image
  • Can choose the destination folder when converting
  • You can now specify preferences overrides using one sheet per image, rather than a single modal dialog
