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).
