DropDMG 1.7 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 X’s optional
“BSD Subsystem” installation. Full documentation is included in PDF and
Apple Help formats.
New in this Version:
– Added support for license agreements. License agreements support
rich text and may be localized.
– The image destination path is now stored abbreviated with a
tilde, if possible. This should help people who have multiple
– The log is printable.
– Finer-grained progress bar and status text.
– If adding the requisite filename extensions would make the
requested image name longer than the limit, DropDMG will now
quietly truncate the name rather than stopping with an error.
– NDIF images are now created with filenames of 31 characters or
less, so that there won’t be any name mangling when they’re
viewed in Mac OS 9.
– DropDMG now truncates .dmg volume names to 62 characters and
.img volume names to 27.
– Fixed bug where DropDMG could deadlock after certain kinds of
– Fixed bug where DropDMG sometimes didn’t detect filename
collisions until after it started making the image.
– Fixed bug where DropDMG would overwrite pre-existing .dmgpart
files if the first segment was not present and the newly
image happened to have the same name.
– Renamed some File menu commands.
