[prMac.com] Vienna, Austria - Incredible Bee has just released Archiver 2.0, a complete overhaul to their archive and file system tool. Designed by Apple Design Award Winner Dietmar Kerschner, Archiver lets users open, create and convert archives, as well as split and combine files. With Archiver 2, Incredible Bee has added popularly requested features, such as archive previewing, multitasking, compression level setting, and a brand new archive format that offers image and audio pre-compression.
A Fresh Workflow and Interface:
"With Archiver 2, we wanted to make a smarter, faster, simpler app," says Ramon Huidobro, Chief Software Officer. "We've given Archiver a completely new look that blends nicely into the look and feel of OS X Lion and Mountain Lion."
The CSO also introduced archive previewing, one of the most popular requested features. Archiver 2 now offers not only the ability to peek into the contents of archives, but also dragging out specific files, and performing QuickLook on files.
High Compression for Image and Music Files:
