VNC/mac and Stuffit 5.1 (again)

I am downloading current versions from the ATT site (v.3.3.3.b2) and your
site (3.3.2.b2.3 and 3.3.2.b2.2).

Even though stuffit expander 3.5.2 supports gzip, you chose version 5.1.
Aladdin, et al, only distribute version 5.5 or version 6 of their engine,
which now requires OS 8.1.  My machine runs  MacOS 7.6.2, so it passes the
VNC requirement of 7.5.3 (OT 1.1.1).

Please downgrade the wrappers for us early-1997-era folks.
It is possible to chose older, more compatible compression
methods/filetype-creators using the newer program.
THANX!!
