ShrinkWrap 2.0 -- Chad Magendanz has released a major upgrade to his popular disk image utility ShrinkWrap. ShrinkWrap 2.0 supports large volumes (such as CD-ROMs, hard disks, and removable media), self-mounting disk images, and new image formats (including DiskDup+, Apple Drive Containers, and PC disk image files). Version 2.0 also offers improved scripting, a log, and native performance for both 68K and Power Mac users. ShrinkWrap should appear on Info-Mac and UMich sites shortly; for now it's at the URLs below. ShrinkWrap remains free for non-commercial individual use; commercial users can register through Kagi Shareware. [GD]
