Overly confusing. Effort spent on superfluous UI animations should have gone into capability.

Would say more if the project wasn't apparently dead.

Wow, the fluid interface looks great. Let's hope core animation brings this standard to the entire OS

It seems Safari mistakenly downloads the file as a .dmg.bz2 file, rather than just a .dmg file.

This means that when you try to open it, the contents get hashed up by the unpacking process.

If you simply rename a Safari download to .dmg before opening, it opens fine.

The possibility is that the server the file has been hosted on, is configured to identify .dmg files as .bz2 in the MIME information. This would cause Safari to dutifully mark the file with the .bz2 file extension.

This looks like a useful app but the archive seems to be corrupted or something. I can't extract it properly and if I manage to get the dmg file out of it it won't mount.

The file downloads and the .dmg mounts with no problems here, just checked it.

Hm, tried it in Firefox and it's working fine. Guess Safari doesn't like it for some reason.

I used Safari in OS X 10.4.9 to download the file. No issues.

Okay, I tried on another computer and it does indeed work fine. So it's just my Safari then. Stink.

DMG Designs can also produce images that automatically grow as files are added, and the image can be encrypted, which allows for images that can be used as secure data backups. Your application's packaging is the first impression many people will get of your product, and with DMG Designs you can produce customized disk images with ease:
  • Save groups of settings called "products"; if done, producing an image is as simple as choosing the product and clicking "Create".
  • Create window configurations that can be used with any product with the same options as in the Finder.
  • Each SLA, can have multiple localizations. You can customize the messages in the system window that displays your SLA. You can even create new localizations for the Disk Image Engine!
  • A background image can be correctly hidden and your disk image's window can be automatically resized to the background image.
  • The dmg can be segmented based on size.
  • DMG Designs can automatically calculate a SHA-1 or MD5 checksum on the final image.
  • Enjoyable to use: Change its appearance from standard, textured, built-in skins, or even custom skins! Changes in views are optionally animated.
