ALADDIN SYSTEMS, INC. AND ACT2 SHIP DISK IMAGE UTILITY, SHRINKWRAP 3.0 JAPAN

New Version Expands Capabilities For Complete Disk Imaging Needs,
Users Can Now Distribute Floppy Disks Over The Internet

Watsonville, CA-- April 24, 1998-- Aladdin Systems, Inc., developer of the
worldwide Macintosh compression and installation standards StuffIt(R) and
InstallerMaker(tm), has incorporated its award winning compression
technology and electronic commerce capabilities in ShrinkWrap(tm) 3.0 for
the Japanese market.

ShrinkWrap is a utility that can easily turn a disk into an electronically
transmittable file (via the Internet, etc.) and then just as easily, return
it to an exact disk image of the original source disk. ShrinkWrap 3.0
supports all commonly used image file formats, it provides StuffIt
compression capabilities, and 40-bit encryption for international and
domestic security.

Why use ShrinkWrap?

ShrinkWrap sports an easy-to-use drag and drop interface that allows users
to create exact duplicates of image files from disks. Features include
recreating the exact icon placement, appearance of all windows, and the
correct name of the disk. With these disk images, users have assurance that
all files have been duplicated correctly and completely.

"ShrinkWrap disk images make transmitting all of the new OS 8 software on
the Internet much easier," said Mikiya Kato of act2.

Key Features and Benefits

*Aladdin's StuffIt compression and decompression technology helps users
save about 30% more space and is twice as fast as DiskCopy 6.1

*Automatic BinHex encoding and standard 40-bit dynamic encryption allows
for secure and timely Internet transmission

*Double-click to mount new self-mounting image files as unlocked volumes
without additional dialogs

*Read/Write/Mount support for Apple's NDIF (New Disk Image Format) image files

*Auto-launch installer feature eliminates writing of DiskScripts and
creation of separate files, it finds and launches the installer on the disk
image automatically

*Adds 68k and PPC compression and encryption quickly and easily with the
upgraded disk image mounting driver; plug in your choice of components

*Caching to the hard drive during disk-to-disk duplication to minimize ejects

*Asynchronous floppy support allows multitasking, ShrinkWrap works in the
background allowing users to continue working on their Mac

*Confirmation of data integrity is provided with CRC-32 and DiskCopy 4.2
checksums

Disk images are frequently used for backing up original floppy disks to
removable media, installing Apple's system updates and system software
extensions, distributing multiple disk images on floppies, mounting
floppies on Macs without a SuperDrive, creating "instant" RAM disks,
distributing software collections and archives on CD-ROM, and verifying the
integrity of development builds. ShrinkWrap is the ideal method of
distributing disk images over the Internet.

electronically and carries a suggested retail price of #180#3900. It is a
System 7 and OS 8 application that contains both 68k and PowerPC native
