The following was posted on the DropDMG blog:
- Added support for creating disk images that are signed for Gatekeeper, as Apple now recommends that Mac applications be distributed on signed disk images (requires Mac OS X 10.11.5 or later). Unsigned disk images are subject to Gatekeeper Path Randomization. This is described in the Signing section of the manual.
- Added support for the .xip archive format, which lets you create secure archives that are signed for Gatekeeper (requires Mac OS X 10.8 or later).
- Added the Verify Signature… command for checking disk images and .xip archives to make sure they are correctly signed (requires Mac OS X 10.11.5 or later).
- The New Blank Disk Image… command now lets you choose the File System
, which can be any variant of HFS+ as well as Apple File System (APFS), Apple’s experimental next-generation file system for 2017. This feature is particularly useful for developers who want to test that their apps work properly on each file system. - On macOS 10.12, DropDMG no longer shows its Select Next Tab
and Select Previous Tab menu items because they duplicate the new system ones. - Made various code modernizations.
- If getting authorization fails, DropDMG now reports the command that it was attempting to execute.
- The distribution disk image is now signed.
- Updated the Sending in an Error Report section of the manual.
- Renamed “Mac OS X” to “macOS” throughout the app and documentation.
- Updated the Chinese, French, and Portuguese localizations.
DropDMG 3.4 works with Mac OS X 10.6.8 through macOS 10.12. Older versions are available for older operating systems. For information about previous releases of DropDMG, please see the version history.
