Compression And Decompression Technology In Their Software To Create Faster

Watsonville, CA - April 23, 2001 - Aladdin Systems, Inc., a wholly-owned
subsidiary of Aladdin Systems Holdings, Inc. (OTC BB: ALHI) and publisher
of the worldwide Internet compression standard, StuffIt(tm), today
announced it is now shipping the StuffIt Engine(tm) Software Developer Kit
(SDK), version 6.0.1 for Macintosh. The StuffIt Engine allows third-party
software developers to put the power of StuffIt technology in their own

"Whether it is accessing existing files and archives, creating them, or
simply reducing the size of the documents an application creates, the
StuffIt Engine SDK is the solution for third-party developers wishing to
include award winning StuffIt technology in their OS X or Classic
application," said David Polzine, StuffIt Engine SDK product manager.

StuffIt Engine Features and Enhancements:
* Carbonized and Compatibile with Mac OS X

Tar, and Unix Compress
* Supports expansion and decoding of AppleSingle, BtoA, Gzip and Rar
* Also, includes all previous formats and capabilities

One Application Programming Interface (API)
Designed to be easy to integrate into a developer's application, the
StuffIt Engine has one API to handle all the popular compression and
encoding formats. By incorporating the StuffIt Engine libraries in any
software application, developers can create or access StuffIt or Zip
archives, add or remove encoding, or make self-extracting archives for Mac
or Windows desktop users. The StuffIt Engine SDK for Macintosh can be used
to create the following file and archive types:

StuffIt (including encrypted and/or segmented), Zip, Self-Extracting
Archive for Macintosh, Self-Extracting Archive for Windows, Apple Single,
Binhex, BtoA, Bzip, Gzip, Lha, MacBinary, Tar, UU

Arc, CompactPro, MIME, PrivateFile, RAR, and to mount ShrinkWrap disk image

most common compression and encoding formats found on Windows, Linux,
Unix, and Macintosh.
* Multiple File Formats: The SDK supports the most popular
compression and encoding formats found on the Internet, examples
