DropDMG

Licence: Commercial with demo
Version 3.2.5 | Release Date: 2014-11-19 | Download
  • DropDMG now sets the Finder icon positions for invisible files, so that if the user has the Finder set to show invisible files (e.g. using AppleShowAllFiles) they do not cover up the background picture or the icons in your disk image’s layout.
  • DropDMG now accepts background pictures with resolutions that are off by a fraction of a dot per inch, as thats’s how some graphics programs save them.
  • DropDMG can now be told to mount disk images via AppleScript. You can control whether verification and file ownership are enabled, whether a shadow file is used, and whether the disk image is mounted at a custom location in the file system. For encrypted disk images, you can specify the passphrase directly or tell DropDMG to load it from a particular configuration in your keychain.
  • DropDMG now supports making the mounted disk image window smaller than the background picture. The window is always anchored at the top-left of the background picture but can be inset a certain number of points from its bottom and right edges. There is currently no user interface for setting the insets, but you can edit them by quitting DropDMG and editing the windowInsets value in the layout’s Info.plist file.
  • Modernized lots of code and removed old code that’s no longer needed for compatibility with legacy OS versions.
  • DropDMG now uses power assertions to prevent App Nap from slowing user-initiated operations when the window is in the background or blocked by the screensaver.
  • Adjusted the icon badging for Mac OS X 10.10’s new mounted disk image icon.
  • Updated the disk image icon for Mac OS X 10.10.
  • Improved the following sections of the manual (among others):
    • Create OS X Install Disk
    • Custom volume icon
    • Restoring Files and Disks
    • Uninstalling DropDMG
    • Updating From a Previous Version
  • Esoteric preferences links are now directly clickable in the Apple Help and PDF manual.
  • The log database no longer uses WAL mode.
  • Worked around a bug in Mac OS X 10.10 that could cause DropDMG to freeze at launch.
  • Worked around a bug in Mac OS X 10.10 that prevented the creation of encrypted disk images when the passphrase was not specified in the configuration.
  • Worked around an Xcode bug that caused DropDMG to complain in Console about missing images.
  • Improved DropDMG’s error handling.
  • Improved the crash reporter.
  • Updated the Gatekeeper signature format.
  • The Software Update… feature is better at explaining what you can do if installation fails.
  • Fixed a bug where the release notes in the Software Update… window were shown in the wrong font.
  • Adjusted the way the Purchase… window displays the remaining demo time to try to make it clearer.
  • The images in the PDF manual and Apple Help are now Retina-resolution.
  • Adjusted the font sizes in the PDF manual.
  • Better handling of localized strings when a bundle is missing (because the application is damaged).
  • Mac OS X 10.10 no longer logs an error related to the main window’s trial button.
  • Worked around an OS bug that could cause a crash when reading DropDMG’s log file.
  • Fixed a bug where DropDMG would report an error if you tried to delete from the log detail drawer.
  • Fixed a bug that could cause a crash when editing license agreements.
  • Fixed a bug where blank disk images sometimes had the wrong internal file ownership.
  • Fixed a regression where the Preferences window wouldn’t open when running in Japanese.
  • Updated the localizations.
  • We need help keeping DropDMG’s Italian and Japanese localizations up-to-date. Please contact dropdmg@c-command.com if you’re interested.
  • DropDMG now requires Mac OS X 10.6.8 or later.
  • DropDMG’s Automator action now requires Mac OS X 10.9 or later. This is because Xcode has dropped support for Objective-C garbage collection, but Mac OS X 10.8 and earlier only support garbage collected Automator actions. If you need to use DropDMG and Automator with Mac OS X 10.8 or earlier, you can run DropDMG 3.2.4.
Version 3.2.4 | Release Date: 2014-01-28 | Download
  • DropDMG no longer posts errors to Notification Center. Instead, if DropDMG is not frontmost, it will bounce the Dock icon to alert you of an error.
  • Made some code signing changes for better compatibility with Mac OS X 10.9.
  • DropDMG is better at detecting errors when setting the background picture and arranging the icons.
  • Fixed a bug that could cause a crash when using DropDMG’s Automator action.
  • Fixed a bug that could cause an internal error when creating a hybrid disk image if the layouts preferences were open.
  • Fixed a bug where DropDMG could report an error when converting a disk image from .iso format to .dmg if the destination file already existed.
  • Updated the sample AppleScripts.
  • Updated the French localization.
Version 3.2.3 | Release Date: 2013-10-10 | Download
  • DropDMG now displays file sizes using the system standard style (requires Mac OS X 10.8 or later).
  • The Burn OS X Install DVD command has been renamed to Create OS X Install Disk. It now offers instructions for creating an installer disk (e.g. hard drive, USB stick, or SD card) for Mac OS X 10.9 Mavericks.
  • Fixed a bug where changes to the license agreement text weren’t saved if you created a new license or language using the action menu.
  • Fixed a bug where some disk image files were incorrectly owned by root if Always run with root access was checked.
  • Fixed a bug where DropDMG would use a stale version number variable when you imaged an application, updated it (e.g. via the Mac App Store), and then imaged it again in the same DropDMG session.
  • Automatic software updates no longer fail if Hazel is set to move files in the Downloads folder.
  • Fixed a typo in the man page.
  • We need some help localizing DropDMG. If you would like to help keep DropDMG’s French localization up-to-date, please contact dropdmg@c-command.com.
Version 3.2.2 | Release Date: 2013-05-03 | Download
  • It is now possible to set (or override) layout variables from AppleScript or the command line. This is also useful when creating a disk image of non-application files; DropDMG would be unable to intuit the {$APP_BASENAME}, but you can still set it to whatever you want in your script and have it rendered into the layout.
  • The HybridFSArgs esoteric preference lets you control which filesystems DropDMG uses for hybrid .iso disk images.
  • Fixed a bug where sometimes creating a disk image failed if it contained a very large number of small files.
  • Fixed a bug where .iso files would sometimes be owned by root instead of the user.
  • Made various minor adjustments to the toolbar icons in the main window.
  • Added Japanese localization.
Version 3.2.1 | Release Date: 2013-01-25 | Download
  • Fixed a bug where DropDMG sometimes didn’t create large enough disk images for files that were stored using HFS+ compression (e.g. applications from the Mac App Store).
  • Fixed a bug where the log showed the source folder’s allocated size rather than its logical size.
  • Fixed a bug creating a disk image with a layout that had text but no background picture.
  • Fixed a bug that could cause DropDMG to create a device image with a dirty HFS+ journal. If the disk image was read-only, it would not be possible to mount the disk image. If you have such a disk image, you can fix it by converting it to a read-write format. The journal will then be replayed and saved in a clean state.
  • Fixed a bug where DropDMG could hang when using the contextual menu in the log.
  • Added instructions for burning a disc with a Custom volume icon.
  • Updated the Italian localization.
Version 3.2 | Release Date: 2012-11-07 | Download
Highlights
  • DropDMG’s user interface is now fully optimized for Macs with Retina displays, as well as multi-display setups.
  • DropDMG now renders Retina-quality background images. The source background picture can be a 72 or 144dpi image, a PDF file, or a multi-resolution TIFF file. DropDMG will render a multi-resolution background picture that’s optimized for display on both Retina and non-Retina Macs.
  • Rather than adding an application icon to a layout, you now have the option of adding an application icon placeholder. This makes it easy to use the same layout to create disk images for different applications.
  • Previously, you could add an Applications folder symlink to layouts by dragging and dropping your Applications folder. There’s now a dedicated button for adding the symlink, to make the feature easier to use and more discoverable.
  • Layouts now support a maximum icon size of 512 points (up from 128).
  • DropDMG can now create segmented ZIP archives (e.g. .z01, .z02, .zip). Such archives cannot be expanded by Mac OS X’s built-in Archive Utility, but there are free third-party expansion utilities such as The Unarchiver.
  • Added the Append version number feature. When imaging or archiving an application or installer, this option will add its version number to the end of the filename.
  • Added support for Notification Center (requires OS X 10.8).
  • Added the Burn OS X Install DVD feature, an easier way to make your own installer or emergency DVD.
  • Streamlined disk image creation by no longer optimizing images for restore that don’t need such optimization.
  • Added the ZlibLevel esoteric preference, which lets you set DropDMG to create .dmg files more quickly but with less compression.
  • Added the DisableRetinaBackgroundPictures esoteric preference, which lets you create non-Retina background pictures in order to work around a bug in Mac OS X 10.6.
Other Improvements
  • DropDMG now tells the system that it can use the integrated GPU, which should reduce battery use on newer MacBook Pros.
  • You can now remove the background image from a layout using the contextual menu on the image view.
  • DropDMG now offers advice for dealing with “Resource busy” errors.
  • Expanded the Making Images With Background Pictures instructions to describe how to make a standard disk image for distributing a Mac application.
  • Improved the What information should I include when I report a problem? page.
  • Improved the folder name when a folder for segments already exists.
  • The documentation now recommends choosing a background picture that’s at least 437 points wide, to account for the Finder’s minimum window width.
  • The crash reporter can now make recommendations based on the contents of the crash log.
  • Deleting a layout, license, or configuration now moves it to the trash rather than deleting it outright.
  • DropDMG itself now has a Retina disk image background, and it shares the layout with other C-Command products.
  • After purchasing, DropDMG used to show your user image to indicate that it had been successfully personalized. It now shows a generic checkmark to avoid prompting you for Contacts access on OS X 10.8.
  • Added a link to the forum in the Help menu.
Fixes
  • Reverted to version 1.2.3 of the Growl SDK to avoid problems with high CPU usage, internal errors, and crashes.
  • Fixed a bug where sometimes the layout editor would reset the scroll position.
  • Fixed a bug where the tooltips in the main window’s pop-up menu didn’t always update when a configuration was changed.
  • Fixed a bug where sometimes packages weren’t wrapped.
  • Fixed a bug where sometimes disk images were created without enough space for the background picture or custom icon.
  • Layout thumbnail previews no longer change the aspect ratio.
  • Fixed a bug where sometimes changes to the segment size in the temporary options dialog didn’t take effect.
  • Fixed an issue where, when loading your recent destination folders, DropDMG would sometimes prompt you with a dialog to find folders on unmounted volumes.
  • Fixed a bug where TIFF files were not allowed for background pictures.
  • Fixed a bug creating images in .cdr format with custom icons or layouts.
  • Fixed a bug where there was an extra gray strip next to the action button in the Layouts tab of the preferences.
  • Fixed a bug handling errors if the software update failed; if it succeeded, the .dmg file is now deleted.
Version 3.1.3 | Release Date: 2012-05-09 | Download
  • DropDMG is now code-signed using a Developer ID certificate for Gatekeeper.
  • Layouts and custom volume icons now work with hybrid (.iso) disk images.

  • DropDMG is now localized in Brazilian Portuguese.
  • Added 1024×1024 application icon.
  • Fixed a bug where the Add Icon… button didn’t constrain new icons to the grid.

  • Fixed a bug that could cause a crash if there was an internal error launching a helper tool.
Version 3.1 | Release Date: 2011-10-04 | Download
  • DropDMG is much faster at creating large disk images under most circumstances, and it now compresses disk images a bit more tightly. Added the Use less temporary disk space preference, so that you can make DropDMG operate in the older, slower mode if your destination volume is running out of space.
  • Disk image layouts can now contain text boxes, with your choice of fonts, styles, colors, and shadows. Thus, it’s no longer necessary to fire up a graphics program to update the text in your background picture.
  • Layout text boxes can contain placeholder variables, which DropDMG will replace when creating the disk image. For example, if your disk image contains an application (e.g. DropDMG.app), the text ${APP_SHORT_VERSION_STRING} will be replaced by the marketing version of the application (e.g. 3.1).
  • The Mount Image… command now has a Shadow file option that lets you mount a read-only disk image as read-write. Any changes made to the mounted image will be written to the adjacent shadow file. This can be useful, e.g. if you want to use Spotlight to search a read-only disk image.
  • DropDMG now supports license agreements localized in Arabic, Greek, Russian, and Ukrainian.
  • To ensure that background pictures display properly in the Finder, DropDMG now reports an error if you give it a picture file that’s not 72dpi.
  • Many operations when editing a disk image layout are now undoable.
  • The license agreement editor text view now displays line breaks in the same places as the text view that the system uses when mounting the disk image.
  • The Preferences window now supports full screen mode (requires Mac OS X 10.7).
  • Added the Burning a Lion Installation DVD section to the manual.
  • Fixed a bug where, when creating an encrypted disk image with no specified passphrase, DropDMG sometimes failed to prompt for one.
  • Fixed a bug where creating a new language for a license agreement appeared to do nothing if the license’s name was in edit mode.
  • Fixed a bug where the configuration/layout/license lists didn’t properly update if you added an item while you were renaming another item.
  • Fixed a bug where the source size reported in the log when mounting a disk image only counted the first segment.
  • Fixed a bug that could cause DropDMG to create a .tar.bz2 archive when you requested .tar.
  • Fixed alignment of license button text fields.
  • Fixed a bug with re-personalizing the application via URL.
Version 3.0.7 | Release Date: 2011-05-17 | Download
    • Fixed a bug where DropDMG would fail with a permissions error when creating a disk image with a custom icon of a root-owned file, e.g. a purchase from the Mac App Store.
    • Fixed a bug where, in rare cases, DropDMG could not create a disk image if a file with its preferred temporary name already existed.
    • Fixed a bug creating images in .cdr format with custom icons or layouts.
    • Clarified the description of .cdr disk image format.
    • Adjusted the help page titles to fit better in the menu and search results.

  • Improved the error message when the chosen destination folder isn’t writable.
  • Improved the German localization.
Version 3.0.4 | Release Date: 2010-11-15 | Download
  • When creating a disk image with a layout, DropDMG now sets it to auto-open. This ensures that CDs/DVDs burned from that disk image will auto-open when the disc is inserted.
  • Fixed a bug where invisible version control folders could prevent detached licenses from working.
  • Fixed a bug where Automator would time out during a long disk imaging operation.
Version 3.0.3 | Release Date: 2010-10-05 | Download
  • Fixed a bug where it didn’t work to simultaneously enter --license-folder and --layout-folder from the command-line.
  • Fixed a bug where some temporary folders would not be deleted if you canceled while converting a disk image.
  • Fixed a bug where the German and Italian localizations showed an incorrect version number.
Version 3.0.2 | Release Date: 2010-08-17 | Download
  • DropDMG is now localized in French.
  • Added toolbar buttons to the DropDMG window for directly opening the Layouts and Licenses tabs of the Preferences window.
  • Added a preference to remove log entries When DropDMG quits.
  • Creates more tightly compressed ZIP archives than previous versions of DropDMG or the Finder (requires Mac OS X 10.6).
  • Added a CreateDeviceImages esoteric preference, which lets you create regular disk images instead of device images when dragging a volume onto DropDMG. This is slower but gives the option of setting a custom volume name.
  • Fixed a bug where DropDMG truncated the suggested volume and base names when using the Ask option.
  • Fixed a bug in the layout editor where retracting a marquee selection left the icons still selected.
  • Fixed a bug where DropDMG reported an error when converting encrypted .sparsebundle disk images.
  • Fixed a bug where using a detached license or layout could cause DropDMG to create extra Info.plist files in nearby folders.
  • When displaying an internal error, DropDMG now cleans it up and presents an abbreviated version to ensure that the window fits on screen. (The full error information is still included when you click the Send E-mail button.)
  • Worked around an OS bug that could prevent DropDMG from being able to open its Preferences window.
  • Tried to work around a problem where the software updater sometimes didn’t ask for the permissions it needed to complete an update.
  • Updated the disk image layout.
Version 3.0.1 | Release Date: 2010-07-14 | Download
  • If you try to enter a serial number for DropDMG 2.x, rather than just complaining that it’s invalid, DropDMG now uses it to help you get a discounted or free upgrade and a 3.x serial number.
  • Fixed a bug where creating a disk image from the Finder’s contextual menu or keyboard shortcut sometimes didn’t work.
  • Fixed a bug where selecting a folder from the New from Folder/File… dialog didn’t work.

  • The user interface and disk imaging engine have been almost completely redesigned and rewritten to make DropDMG easier to use and more robust.
  • The Layouts feature gives developers a WYSIWYG editor to set the background picture, view options, and icon positions, making it easy to deploy Mac software to their users.
  • The New Blank Disk Image… command lets you protect select folders using the same encryption technology as FileVault but without its drawbacks.
  • Added support for the .sparsebundle, .sparseimage, and hybrid (.iso) disk image formats.
  • The DropDMG window now has a customizable toolbar for quick access to commonly used commands.
  • DropDMG can now create device images of hard drives.
  • The Verify Image… command now works in the background and can verify a whole folder of disk images at once. You can also bulk-verify multiple encrypted disk images without having to keep re-entering the passphrase.
  • The Activity window consolidates progress information into a single window, rather than having separate windows for each operation. Additionally, DropDMG now has progress bars for bulk operations, so that you can see the overall progress (e.g. folder 6 of 10) in addition to the progress for the current operations.
  • The Mount Image… command now works in the background and can mount multiple disk images at once. You can also bulk-mount encrypted disk images that share the same passphrase.
  • Added the Change Image Passphrase… command, which makes it much faster to change the passphrase of an encrypted disk image.
  • The Join Files… command lets you recombine files that have been split into .001, .002, etc. files.

  • Fixed a regression in version 2.8.3 where DropDMG would delete the source file/folder if you were creating a segmented disk image next to the source and there was not enough disk space.
Version 2.8.3 | Release Date: 2008-01-08 | Download
  • Fixed bug where a .dmg file would not mount on Mac OS X 10.3 and earlier if you created it on an Intel-based Mac running Mac OS X 10.5 and the image contained just a single package file (e.g. an application).
  • Fixed bug where Append Current Date didn’t work properly when the original file/folder had a very long name.

  • Improved compatibility with pre-release versions of Mac OS X 10.5.
  • Passphrases are now set in a separate dialog rather than directly in the preferences window, and this has been combined with the old Confirm Passphrase feature. This makes it easier to verify a passphrase when you enter it.
  • DropDMG now accesses the keychain only when necessary, so it won’t prompt you to unlock the keychain if you’re creating an image that doesn’t have a passphrase.
  • The Software Update checker now works behind an HTTP proxy, and the auto-updater is compatible with FileVault.
  • Reorganized the manual and added Burning Backups of CDs/DVDs and Transferring Files Securely sections.

  • Worked around OS bug that could cause crashes when editing license agreements.
  • Fixed bug when converting multiple archives simultaneously using StuffIt Expander.
  • Rewrote the Software Update feature. When a new version is available, it can now show you the release notes. DropDMG now downloads the new version itself, rather than relying on your browser. The Download & Install button will cause DropDMG to auto-update itself to the latest version.
  • Added recommended segment sizes to the manual and tooltip.
  • If no windows are open when you click on DropDMG's icon in the Dock, it will now open The Status Window.
  • The Volume Name field is ignored when creating a device image, so it's now disabled in that case.
