Pacifist opens up .pkg installer packages, .dmg disk images, .zip, .tar. tar.gz, .tar.bz2, .pax, and .xar archives and more, and lets you extract or install individual files out of them. This is useful if you need to install just one file out of a package instead of the entire package (for example, if you deleted your Preview application and need to reinstall it, but not the whole operating system), or if you want to inspect a downloaded package to see what it will do before installing it. Pacifist can also load some archive types over HTTP, in case you want to extract just a single file from a large .zip archive without waiting for the entire archive to download. Finally, Pacifist can examine the kernel extensions installed in your system to let you see what installer installed them, and whether the installer was made by Apple or a third-party.
- Fixed a bug that caused Pacifist to fail to open Java .jar files
- Fixed a bug that could cause Pacifist to incorrectly read a folder as an empty file in ZIP archives in rare cases
- Improved performance when extracting the entirety of a large archive (like the Yosemite installer)
- Fixed a bug that could cause modification dates of extracted folders to be incorrect
- Fixed a bug where closing the search drawer manually by dragging it in could cause the application to crash
