StuffIt Deluxe 2009 ships

Smith Micro says it has released StuffIt Deluxe 2009, an upgraded version of its popular compression program. The 2009 edition adds a variety of features, most notably support for more recent Apple technologies. These include Time Machine and Quick Look, the latter of which lets users examine an archive within Finder and other supporting applications, such as Mail.

The program can now also transfer archives to iDisks, using DropStuff or StuffIt Scheduler. DropStuff has been separately enhanced with custom profiles and desktop droplets, which let users define presets for handling specific compression formats.

Other changes include the exclusion of duplicate files from archives, support for expanding 7-Zip and segmented ZIP files, and MacFUSE compatibility, which lets people mount an archive in Finder as if it were a disk image. StuffIt Deluxe 2009 requires Mac OS X 10.4 or later, and costs $80 new or $30 as an upgrade from StuffIt Standard Edition or any previous version of Deluxe.

    how can they

    still be selling this so-called "product"?

    It's been obsolete for years. SmithMicro, where we keep selling you products that nobody else would. Where obsolete products go to milk suckers as long as possible.

    Re: How can they

    Right. Because one person says a program is obsolete, it must be, and whoever is selling it should stop immediately and no one should buy it.

    If people are buying it, there must be a demand, so they sell it.

    Sorry you don't understand the fundamentals of basic economics and supply/demand.
