Stuffit Deluxe 2010 for Mac OS X adds Connect service

Smith Micro Software has released StuffIt Deluxe
2010 for Mac
( The new
Mac OS X 10.6 (“Snow Leopard”) compatible release
includes StuffIt Connect, a new cloud-based file
transfer service that lets users share large
files without the hassle of email attachments or

StuffIt continues to provide compression
technology, of course. It works with virtually
all files and compression formats, such as Zip.
StuffIt Deluxe 2010 eliminates the constraints of
email attachments by automatically redirecting
large files to the new StuffIt Connect web
service, according to Matthew Covington, senior
director, Product Management of Smith Micro
Software. Recipients receive invitations via
email that contain a link to the hosted file,
which lets them download shared files. Users can
access and create invitations to share content
from any Internet-connected device, including
iPhones and other smartphones. StuffIt Connect
protects files with 512-bit RC4 encryption
technology and offers users the ability to
further protect download links with password
access to ensure files can only be opened by the
intended recipient.

StuffIt Deluxe 2010 for Mac also features:

° StuffIt SmartSend, which, according to
Covington, takes the guesswork out of sending
large files via email. Users simply select the
files and choose “Stuff and Mail” from the Magic
Menu in the Finder’s menu bar. Small files are
automatically compressed and attached to a new
email message, while larger items are
automatically uploaded to a secure web site via
StuffIt Connect.

° Plug-in support for photo applications. You can
access StuffIt directly from popular photo
editing applications iPhoto and Aperture with
StuffIt plug-ins.

° A Create Disk Image (DMG) option, that offers
the convenience of creating disk image files
(DMG) directly from Magic Menu by simply
selecting files to add to a disk image, and
choosing “Create Disk Image” from the Magic Menu.

° Improved image and audio compression.

StuffIt Deluxe 2010 for Mac is US$79.99.

StuffIt Deluxe or StuffIt Standard for Mac can
