Michael Tsai has released DropDMG 2.5.

I use this little tool all the time, and just last week was wondering if I needed any new features. (I wasn't sure there was any reason to ever update it.)

A few days later, Michael came out with 2.5, and look at all the cool stuff he built into it! My favorite pure-geek feature is that it lets you mount a disk image anywhere in the file system, instead of only on the Desktop. Man, that's cool, and reminds me of something Brian A. and I have discussed a few times over the years (a way to 'mount' environmental extensions into a scripting system like Frontier).

Some other more-useful-less-cool new features: it can convert lots of archive file formats into disk image files, mounted images can have custom (pre-defined) icons, and you can save your preference set into a file so it's easy to switch back and forth between sets. That last one may be the most useful of all, as I use .dmg files to send projects to (mac-based) clients, and have slightly different settings for each project.

Get DropDMG here.
