Is this still getting developed? It hasn't been updated for 2 years...

Why do people buy this? Its a genuine question, given the multitude of cheaper alternatives and the fact you can open an older stuffit archive using an older version of this software. Maybe I’m missing something?

Why do people continue to use Microsoft Office or even Windows? They are used to it, although there might be much better solutions. Other people still use IRC or Usenet, and a few weird people still read newspapers! So here we have also a spot for StuffIt nostalgics!

Perhaps, because Mac OS X no longer easily
(if at all) accommodates encrypting zip files, contrary to numerous postings on the web regarding using of Terminal commands. And some folks are not familiar with the other apps.
I must add SD 15 seems not quite ready for prime time. There appears to be some level of zip encryption security issue. Oh, yes one can easily create encrypted dmg files, but few Windows users have dmg reading widgetry.

I used StuffIt for many years on a daily base, however for the past two years I use either the OSx build in version or The Unarchiver and have not seen the need to use StuffIt at all. It's is way overpriced nowadays and in my eyes there are many as good and much cheaper alternatives.

People are still using this junk? Stuffit Deluxe was fantastic up until 10.2.0. However, it's ABSOLUTELY no longer needed. Especially since the OS can handle zip files and there are dozens of other free software packages which will handle other formats such as .rar or .sitx. This software isn't worth anything anymore (which is why it was sold to Smith Micro) and Smith Micro is simply preying on users who know no better. YOU DO NOT NEED THIS SOFTWARE.

Here is a direct link to the free Stuffit Expander:

This is really the only part of the package you could ever possibly need.

I wonder whose brilliant idea that was.

It may be fashionable for people, especially those who don't use it, to bag Stuffit but it is an extremely useful utility to have in your kit.

I just had a .rar download that was downloading forever, to 160% of its actual size. I had taken 2 shots at getting it and it was not a small DL, so I eventually just stopped the DL then changed the extension to.rar from.download.

Unarchiver and my other utilities would only get a small part of the enclosed files and then report an unexpected ending.

Stuffit cleanly extracted the entire contents, with just one file having a messed up name, easily fixed. Stuffit's strength is its ability to tackle a wide range of compression methods and do it better than almost any other archiving utilities out there.

Be sensible and just cough up for what is an extremely useful, and should be enouraged, archiving/unarchiving utility.

Stuffit Deluxe is free until December 18th:

Just remove the Extended Download service from the cart. No credit card required, but you do have to create an account.

That's right, but it expires whithin a year and you only get this info after inserting your email and creating an account.

Why free what is wrong with it?

@Vitu

The software does NOT expire. The only thing that expires after a year is your ability to re-download it from their web site. No one needs that, since you should be saving the downloads of any licensed software anyway.

I don't know when this giveaway started, but my ability to download it has already expired (date of purchase: Dec 14 2011). There's an option to "re-activate download", by, of course, paying MicroSmith.

I do save my stuff (no pun intended) and I will install this after a year to see how it behaves. More on that later! ;)

You were right: the software installed without issues after an year and I was even able to download its latest update.

Forgive me for jumping into conclusions!

So, is this a paid upgrade for someone who already owns an earlier copy of StuffIt 2011?

This version is not showing on the updates page.

Right -- got the same thing. The software's internal update function (both Expander and Deluxe) says "You've got the latest version" at 15.0.2 And on the Smith Micro updates page, 15.0.2 is also shown as the most recent version. (Updates are free btw, to all those goofballs posting here about needing credit cards.) So I am not sure where MacUpdate came up with the 15.0.4 info…

Heres the updater link. It's a free update.

And what about Stuffit Standard 15.0.2 – can it be updated to 15.0.4?

RavenNevermore

Yes, I updated 15.02 to 15.04. I don't think there was a 15.03 update.

Deluxe updater doesn't accept Standard license number. Where to get Standard update?

Thanks for the 15.0.4 update link, Davidravenmoon. Considering how much more compressed StuffIt archives are compared to zipped archives, I continue to use this app on my 27" iMac running Lion. I don't know why Apple chose ZIP as the default compression scheme when it is such a space waster. Some people may say that space is really no longer an issue considering what huge hard drives we have these days; but still, I just like the super compression that StuffIt Deluxe achieves compared to ZIP.

The final nail in the coffin. Goodbye StuffIt.
