The latest release of the world’s most advanced desktop operating system also adds new core technologies that deliver breakthrough power efficiency and responsiveness.

• Pick up right where you left off. iCloud keeps your current page up to date across all your devices.

iCloud Keychain

• Keep your website passwords, credit card numbers, and Wi-Fi passwords up to date across your trusted devices. Robust 256-bit AES encryption helps keep your information safe.
• Sign in once to all of your mail, contacts, calendar, and other internet accounts, and iCloud pushes them to all your Mac computers. 

Multiple Displays
• Just plug in a second display to use it with your Mac — no configuration required.
• Access the Dock and the menu bars on each display.

• Move files between your tabs by simply dragging and dropping them.
• Select a custom view — icon, list, or column — for each of your tabs. 
• Use tabs with full-screen Finder to organize and access all your files and folders.

Tags
• Organize files with tags no matter where they’re located — in iCloud or on your Mac.
• Give a document as many tags as you want.
• Click a tag in the Finder sidebar to see all the files with that tag. 

Advanced Technologies

• Watching iTunes HD video is now more efficient, so you can watch more video when you’re not plugged in.
• App Nap regulates applications you’re not using so they consume less energy.

iCloud Keychain on iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch requires iOS 7.0.3.

The Unarchiver

 
 
by 2414 users
 

Description

The Unarchiver is a small and easy to use program that can unarchive many different kinds of archive files. It will open common formats such as Zip, RAR, 7-zip, Tar, Gzip and Bzip2. It will also open many older formats, such as StuffIt, DiskDoubler, LZH, ARJ and ARC. It will even open other kinds of files, like ISO and BIN disc images, some Windows .EXE installers. The list is actually much longer - see the program homepage for the full list.

The Unarchiver also tries to detect and correctly handle the filename encoding in the archives it opens, allowing you to open files from every part of the world without getting garbled filenames.

The Unarchiver aims to be the only unarchiving program you will ever need, and to stay out of your way.

However, if you want to browse the contents of archives, or if you want to support development of The Unarchiver, look for "The Archive Browser" on the Mac App Store, or go to http://archivebrowser.c3.cx/! It lets you browse and preview archive contents, and find out information about archives!

Also, if you need to open archives on your iPad or iPhone, look for "Archives" on the App Store, or go to http://archives.c3.cx/. It is based on The Unarchiver, and lets you easily handle Archives on iOS!
 

Release Notes

* The Archive Browser for Mac OS X and Archives for iOS have also been updated! Look for them in the App Stores!
* 3.9.1: Fixed extraction of double-format archives like .tar.gz, which was accidentally broken in 3.9.
* Add Dutch translation.
* Add support for PMA files.
* Better support for broken Zip files.
* Fixed bugs in handling of NSIS and MSI files.
* Fixed a bug where minimizing the window could make it remain open after extracting.
* Tiny interface tweaks.
