Version 3.2.8 of DropDMG is now available. This is a free update for owners of DropDMG 3.0 that includes the following enhancements:

  • DropDMG is now fully compatible with Mac OS X 10.11 El Capitan.
  • Added support for LZFSE-compressed disk images, which are smaller than the standard zlib-compressed disk images yet twice as fast to encode and three times as fast to decode (requires Mac OS X 10.11).
  • When you’re editing a license or layout, DropDMG now adds a menu to the Fonts panel for choosing the system font, since there is otherwise no way of choosing San Francisco or the proper version of Helvetica Neue to match the user interface.
  • Updated the Create OS X Install Disk instructions for Mac OS X 10.11.
  • It is now possible to enter segment sizes larger than 50 GB in the Preferences window. (Previously, this was only possible via script.)
  • Added segment size and blank disk image preset for 100 GB BD-R XL discs.
  • Modernized code for the Xcode 7 compiler and the Mac OS X 10.11 SDK.
  • The Command-line tool is now installed in a different folder on Mac OS X 10.11 for compatibility with System Integrity Protection.
  • Added support for App Transport Security on Mac OS X 10.11.
  • The About, Software Update, and help windows now use the San Francisco font on Mac OS X 10.11.
  • Worked around an OS bug that could cause the volume to be busy when creating a device image on Mac OS X 10.11.
  • Worked around a bug in Mac OS X 10.11 that could cause a crash during Software Update….
  • Added some logging and esoteric preferences to work around problems hiding/showing the Finder’s status bar.
  • Improved the Sharing Licenses and Layouts section of the manual.
  • Fixed a bug where Software Update… would continue offering updates in the same session you had held down the Option key.
  • Removed inadvertent debug logging for the Append version number feature.
  • Updated the French, Italian, Portuguese, and Spanish localizations.

DropDMG 3.2.8 works with Mac OS X 10.6.8 through 10.11. Older versions are available for older operating systems. For information about previous releases of DropDMG, please see the version history.
