Description

First of all - fantastic app. A pleasure to use, and wonderful to have on Windows too!

I would like to request you to distribute the Mac version in a .dmg file rather than a zip. DMG's are a standard way to deliver Mac applications. Within the disk image could be the drag and drop app like you put in the zip, or a flat .pkg installer.

I put Cyberduck on multiple Mac's using Munki - https://www.munki.org/munki/ - As a zip file, I must first unzip, then either create a flat .pkg installer or put the functioning app in a .dmg.I'm trying to reduce steps and would like to be able to use your content direct without having to convert it.

I cannot think of any downsides to this change and hope you will consider it!

I appreciate your time and wonderful app!

Marc

A ZIP is much easier as it will unpack automatically when downloaded using Safari with the application ready to be used from the Downloads folder. Disk images are still a confusing thing for the average user. We can produce a PKG installer if that would help.
