Mac keynote 2009 format.

he new iWork '09 suite includes a new file format that packs all the data into a single file, rather than using a package bundle, as did iWork '08.

To get the folder, just change the extension of the file from .key to .zip. Then you can just unzip it to a folder. Change back from .zip to .key will give you the intact keynote file. 

To get the old formats back, simply go into Preferences in each iWork application, and under the General tab, check the box that says Save new documents as packages
