    "RAR creation not supported, otherwise nice product"

    December 27, 2011   |   By willgen

    Version: Springy 1.6.1


    Nice GUI, unarchives a wide variety of formats.


    Will not create RAR archives, despite the product description indicating RAR is supported. Built-in help confirms creation of RAR archives is not supported. This was the primary purpose I downloaded the product for.


    Seems like a nicely produced product for the few archive types it can create, but needs to support creation of RAR archives.

    Full Specifications

    What's new in version 1.6.1
    • Fixes a bug in version 1.6 which could corrupt a ZIP archive after modifying it and quitting application.
    • Open, read and extract support for 7Z archives (support for creating/modifying of 7Z archives will come soon).
    • Open, read and extract support for Microsoft CAB archives.
    • Springy is a Services Provider application, with Services Menu actions in Snow Leopard replacing Finder contextual menu plug-in (CM plug-in is still available in Leopard and earlier).
    • Direct extraction mode, when the whole archive or disk image is extracted with double click on its file in Finder (application only).
    • Flat file list view, which shows all files and folders in an archive without their mutual hierarchy (application only).
    • Much more robust automatic archive type recognition.
    • Speed gains when opening and processing ZIP archives (especially it they contain 20000+ files inside).
    • Springy can now open and extract files from malformed large ZIP archives created by Apple tools Archive Utility and ditto, which don't follow Zip64 specification properly.
    • Springy can now open empty uncompressed TAR, PAX and CPIO archives it created.
    • Showing icon file preview immediately after icon generation, which gives more smooth and natural user experience (application only).
    • New toolbar icons for the user preferences panel (thanks to Kenichi Yoshida).
    • File sizes in Snow Leopard are shown the same way as system wide, using "power of 10" instead of "power of 2" calculation.
    • Removed DMG disk image file type from the list of file types for which Springy can be set as a default handler. This feature caused quite some problems for some users (application only).
    • Fixed bug when drawing last or a preview column after making an empty selection in a column view in Snow Leopard (application only).
    • Fixed bug when rendering file preview in a preview column for some files in Snow Leopard (application only).
    • Fixed bug which disabled permanently password text field in a save panel when creating DMG disk images (application only).
    • Fixed bug which hanged CM plug-in after right clicking two or more times an empty file selection in Path Finder (contextual menu plug-in only).
