DropDMG 3.2.9

December 11th, 2015 (DropDMG)

Version 3.2.9 of DropDMG is now available. This is a free update for owners of DropDMG 3.0 that includes the following enhancements:

  • By default, Mac OS X 10.11 required you to click an Options push button to see the options for the New from Folder/File…, Convert Image/Archive…, Get Image Info…, and Mount Image… commands. DropDMG now shows the options by default.
  • Worked around a change in the Finder that caused disk image windows to be too short for the background picture when created using Mac OS X 10.11.
  • Worked around a Finder bug in Mac OS X 10.11 that could cause the disk image’s icons to be misaligned if the AppleShowAllFiles option was enabled.
  • DropDMG will now check that the Finder saved the state of the window status bar and fix it if necessary.
  • The Activity window is now shown by default.
  • Added the Why doesn’t the file I added show up on the disk image? section to the manual.
  • Updated the Create OS X Install Disk section of the manual.
  • Improved the error messages when the Finder doesn’t save the proper window bounds for the mounted disk image.
  • If the LayouterCheckViewOptions esoteric preference is set, DropDMG will now check that the icon size, text size, and background picture were correctly saved into the view options (retrying if necessary). This can work around a rare bug that was reported in Mac OS X 10.11.
  • Fixed a bug where Mac App Store receipt validation used the current date rather than the receipt creation date.
  • Fixed a regression (caused by an Xcode update) where various dialogs and sheets did not show the lock icon to indicate that a passphrase was set.
  • Fixed the size of the distribution disk image window.
  • Updated code for Xcode 7.2.
  • DropDMG is now localized in Simplified Chinese.
  • We need some help localizing DropDMG. If you would like to help keep DropDMG’s German localization up-to-date, please contact dropdmg@c-command.com.

DropDMG 3.2.9 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.
