New Virtual Desktop -- After the mention of Virtual Desktop in "Monitor Shielding and Background" in TidBITS-426, Ross Brown <firstname.lastname@example.org> of AWOL Software Productions advises us that you need Virtual Desktop 1.9.2, not 1.9.1, for compatibility with Mac OS 8.0 and 8.1. The new version, released 24-Apr-98, will be archived at Info-Mac later this week. [ACE]
