Watsonville, CA - July 9, 2001- Providing a universal compression solution for all computing platforms and file types, Aladdin Systems, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Aladdin Systems Holdings, Inc. (OTC BB: ALHI), today shipped its award winning compression software, StuffIt(tm) for Linux and Sun's Solaris operating systems, making StuffIt available on Windows, Macintosh, Linux, and Solaris platforms.
"Aladdin understands that computer users don't want to worry about their compression tool and whether or not their recipient will be able to access their email attachment," said David Polzine, StuffIt Linux/Unix product manager. "With StuffIt, users know they can compress and access files no matter what platform is being used. One tool, one global solution: StuffIt!"
StuffIt is the industry leader in cross-platform multi-format file compression. Wherever there is a need for compressing large files into smaller archives, whether to fit them on removable media, posting them to a web site, or sending them via email, or storing them on a server, StuffIt is the single source solution. StuffIt gives users the power to expand and access any files they receive, whether downloading files from the Internet or receiving files via email. All versions of StuffIt come with Aladdin's free expansion software: StuffIt Expander.
"StuffIt for Linux is great!" said a StuffIt for Linux beta tester. "We've been looking for a tool to help us dynamically manage files submitted by users on a wide range of platforms and this is it!"
Supported Formats: StuffIt for Linux and Solaris can be used to create Zip, StuffIt, Binhex, MacBinary, Uuencode, Unix Compress, self-extracting archives for Windows or Macintosh platforms and it can be used to expand all of the above plus bzip files, gzip, arj, lha, rar, BtoAtext and Mime.
