ZipIt is a Macintosh program that ZIPs and UNZIPs archives. It is shareware, but fully useable after a 7 second pause at start-up.

ZipIt is a full-featured Macintosh archival program. It is fully compatible with PKWare, Info-Zip, and other zip compression products. ZipIt includes a complete Macintosh interface, and boasts Mac-specific features such as AppleEvent support and Macintosh Drag and Drop, as well as general features such as encryption (in the United States and Canada) and segmenting.

This version adds the following major new features: Native operation on the Power Macintosh, support for Macintosh Drag and Drop, support for the Internet Config application, and improved support for segmenting. It also fixes a segmenting bug introduced in version 1.3.3.

Architecture: 68k PPC PPC (Carbonized)

Versions 1.1.1 to 1.3.2 are 68k applications and can run on Mac OS's 6.0.7 and later (untested on earlier). Version 1.3.2 was the final 68k only release.

Versions 1.3.4 to 1.3.8 will run under System 6.0.7 and newer, and also run well on the Mac II variation of Mini vMac and native on PPC Macintosh (FAT).

Version 1.4 is untested by this archivist, but likely will be native 68k & PPC (FAT).

Versions 2.1 to 2.2.2 are PPC only, Carbonized for PPC OS X and Classic Mac OS 8.6 - 9.2.2 and require CarbonLib 1.4 or newer to run under a Classic Mac OS.

Thanks, mrdav. No worries, I've adjusted the description.

@MTT. I have uploaded v 1.1.1, 1.2.6 and 1.3.2. I will leave it to you to adjust the page description if that is OK.

Nice. The very rare ones are 1.2.1 to 1.2.5 (not in your list), I don't think we need 1.3.7 as 1.3.8 came out shortly after as a definite bug-fix release to it (1.3.7 is the 1st of the series to support AppleScript). 1.1 or 1.1.1 and 1.2.6 & 1.3.2 I think could be added. Up to you tho' as what you think should be here. 1.3.2 is the final 68k only version. I was impressed with the 1.3.x versions all being able to run on SSW6 when I was looking for zip utilities that could work on 6.

Hi MikeTomTom, you mentioned in your revisions note that you have uploaded all the versions you could find. I also have versions 1.1, 1.1.1, 1.2, 1.2.6, 1.3.1, 1.3.2, 1.3.7. It is probably only worth putting key versions up here. Are any of these worth uploading? I am reluctant to put all versions up as it seems unnecessary.

2.1 requires 8.6 and Carbonlib. 1.4 supports SSW 7.
Edit: Replaced 'xxx 7' by 'SSW 7' - IIGS User

I've tried this several times over the years and have encountered too many problems (I forget, but I know I've given it several chances and it's always been disappointing compared to others on Mac OS Classic). Stuffit Deluxe 7 can open zip files read-only and let you browse them, and there's a DropStuff, which serves most needs.

Lazily added the application. Feel free to add more details... Smile

ZipIt is shareware. I choose MacZip is freeware and (in my opinion) better.
