I would like to avoid creating additional zip packages for the updater as long as I distribute my application in .DMG files. Sparkle seems to work fine with DMG, only it doesn't show the progress indicator. Is it possible to download DMG and still show the progress fill level?

This has been added in 1.16. The progress isn't fine grained, because we don't have detailed information from the underlying tools, but at least something is there.

BTW: DMG is an awful format, so you should use zip/tar anyway. Also try the new generate_appcast tool which creates delta updates, which are smaller and faster.
