Connectix Releases Speed Doubler 8.1 -- Connectix has released Speed Doubler 8.1, an update to the performance-enhancement and utility package that's compatible with Mac OS 8.1. New features include the ability to leave Speed Doubler running (avoiding delays when it copies files or empties the trash) and the Hot Keys automation feature can mount a remote volume and open disks or folders. The update also features improved file copy performance and compatibility with Macintosh Extended Format volumes (see "All About Macintosh Extended Format" in TidBITS-414). Connectix says international versions of Speed Doubler 8.1 will be available soon, depending in part on Apple's release of international versions of Mac OS 8.1. The Speed Doubler 8.1 Updater is a 476K download; a separate updater is available for Speed Doubler 8's version of Speed Copy for network servers. [GD]
Move the Dock Quickly
You may find it convenient to move the position of the Dock when working in certain programs or with certain files. Rather than choosing a different position from the Dock preferences pane or using a submenu in the Apple menu's Dock submenu, you can move your Dock to a different screen edge merely by Shift-dragging the separator that divides the application and document sections.
