Version 3.6.4 of DropDMG is now available.

DropDMG makes it easy to create a professional disk image for your app. Disk images pack entire folders or disks into a single compressed file, either for transport across the Internet or simply for backup or archival. They are Apple’s preferred format for distributing Mac software and the only archive format whose contents you can directly access in the Mac Finder—no extraction or third-party software required.

Deliver your Mac app on a .dmg file with a software license agreement, a custom volume icon, and a precise icon layout atop a Retina-optimized background picture. Customers can install simply by dragging and dropping the app onto the convenient Applications folder link. Code-sign your .dmg so that macOS knows it can be trusted after download.

This is a free update for owners of DropDMG 3.0 that includes the following enhancements:

  • Preferences: ConfigurationsUpdated the Security & Privacy Access documentation for the forthcoming macOS 13 Ventura.
  • The Append version number option and Layouts version number placeholders now work with iOS apps on Mac.
  • Worked around a macOS bug that could cause a crash when burning a disc.
  • Preferences: LicensesImproved the error message when the source folder and destination folder are the same.
  • Updated the Segments section of the manual.
  • Updated the Chinese localization.
  • Updated the Read Me.

DropDMG 3.6.4 works with macOS 10.9 through macOS 13. Older DropDMG versions are available for older versions of macOS. In-depth information about DropDMG is available in the manual.
