Pacifist 1.6 is a shareware application that opens Mac OS X .pkg
package files and allows you to extract individual files and folders
out of them. This is useful, for instance, if an application which is
installed by the operating system becomes damaged and needs to be
reinstalled without the hassle of reinstalling all of Mac OS X (for
example, if you had accidentally deleted Sherlock and wanted to
reinstall it, but not the whole operating system). Pacifist is also
able to verify existing installations and find missing or altered
files*, and also has the ability to optimize your system's performance
by updating prebinding information on your hard disk.

*This product includes software developed by the University of
California, Berkeley and its contributors.

Changes in this version:

- Compatibility with Mac OS X 10.3 (Panther) and its packages

- Fixed some minor interface flaws

- Small performance increases

- Made the verify feature check the file size if the package does not
specify a checksum

- Fixed some bugs in extracting identical files from a package

- Loading a package is now done in a separate thread

- It is now possible to cancel loading of a package

- Fixed a spurious disk-full error

- Pacifist now notifies the Finder when it installs a file so that it
will update immediately

- Pacifist is now much smarter about dealing with situations when it is
asked to extract files from a package on a disk that is no longer
inserted
