Decompression Freeware for Windows
Watsonville, CA - July 20, 1998- Aladdin Systems ships Aladdin Expander(tm)
version 2.0 for Windows today, the only 32-bit decompression freeware tool
that can expand StuffIt(R)-compressed files, the worldwide Macintosh
compression standard. Aladdin Expander 2.0 also provides free Private
File(tm) decryption and expansion support.
"With so many Macintosh users on the Internet, the StuffIt format is
everywhere," said Jonathan Kahn, vice president of sales and business
development. "To ease cross-platform communication, we've created Aladdin
Expander to give Windows users access to StuffIt files, the most popular
Macintosh compression format."
Features in Aladdin Expander:

utility that allows users to join segmented archives created by StuffIt

*Private File decryption capabilities - Now, Mac Private File (Aladdin's
security software) users can send encrypted documents to Windows users who
have Aladdin Expander. Expander decompresses and decrypts the document(s),
provided the correct password is used. Users can easily trade Private File
documents without worrying about access or platform compatibility.
*Support for MIME/Base64 encoded files - Aladdin Expander decompresses and
decodes all Macintosh file formats found online, including StuffIt (.sit),
Compact Pro (.cpt), MacBinary (.bin), and BinHex (.hqx). It also expands
