DropDMG 3.3

May 23rd, 2016 (DropDMG)

Version 3.3 of DropDMG is now available. This is a free update for owners of DropDMG 3.0 that includes the following enhancements:

  • The Format pop-up menu now makes it clearer which compression algorithm each format uses.
  • Improved DropDMG’s file choosing message text to work around Mac OS X 10.11’s behavior of sometimes not showing the panel’s title.
  • Improved the way tooltips show file paths when the file no longer exists.
  • Improved the error reporting and debug logging for the command-line tool.
  • Improved the error reporting for the Software Update… command.
  • Improved the error reporting when a Mac App Store receipt cannot be found.
  • Made various code modernizations.
  • The Command-line tool section of the manual describes how to use DropDMG with Xcode Server.
  • Updated the Licenses section of the manual.
  • DropDMG now disables full screen mode for its main window to work around a drawing glitch with Mac OS X 10.11.
  • Fixed a bug where creating a .sparsebundle or .sparseimage from a package didn’t work.
  • Fixed a bug where Mac App Store receipts would not validate if the Mac’s language was set to Hebrew.
  • Fixed a bug where if there were repeated errors saving the size of the Finder window, DropDMG would not properly clean up. Now it ejects and deletes the temporary disk image file.
  • Updated the German localization.

DropDMG 3.3 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.
