Suspicious Package, the QL plugin for examining Installer packages, has been updated to version 1.1.

This version adds mpkg support, fixes problems where install locations were not always displayed, and adds more information about the package — including administrator password and restart requirements, and what install scripts it contains.

I’ve written a Quick Look plugin that someone might find interesting: it lets you preview standard Apple installer packages to see what files that will/would install.

The plugin is called Suspicious Package. It is free, and can be gotten from http://www.mothersruin.com/software/SuspiciousPackage/

I just wanted to mention that QLColorCode (a popular source code highlighting plug-in) has been updated to version 0.4.1 and that the screenshot you’re showing is somewhat out of date.  The highlighting engine has changed and thus the appearance has changed as well.

Thanks, Nathan. Here is a new screenshot:

Janome Embroidery Machines (e. g. the MC350E) uses a proprietary file format for patterns. Most machines are able to preview these files, but sometimes you want to check them directly at your computer without the hassle of transfering.

JEFview previews JEF files.
