AceXpander 1.1 is now a universal binary. To make this possible, the application has been completely re-implemented in Objective-C. As usual you can find everything on the AceXpander page.
Once again, this is not a feature release. Almost all of the new stuff has happened behind the scenes, e.g.
- a crippling bug in the intermediate release 1.0.2 has been fixed
- in the source tar ball you will find a couple of UML diagrams and you can generate source code documentation with doxygen
- the way how the
unacebinary is launched has changed completely
I have released AceXpander 1.0.1 - you can download it here. Feature-wise the release is not interesting. The new stuff has happened on the artistic side: I have added an application and a document icon, and the project has now a slightly different name to accomodate the new icons and logo (new name: AceXpander, old name: AceExpander).
AceXpander is a Mac OS X graphical user interface to the
unace command line utility. With AceXpander installed, you can simply double-click on any ACE archive in the Finder and the contents of the archive will be extracted to a sub-folder of the same folder where the original archive is located. To configure AceXpander, or to use additional program features, you have to directly launch the application (e.g. by double-clicking on the application icon in the Finder or the Dock).
Important note: AceXpander no longer runs on modern versions of Mac OS X because the
unace utility that it ships with is a PowerPC binary. An updated version of the utility is not available because the WinAce project appears to be defunct.
