RAM Doubler 8 Upgrade Adds Speed, Stability

RAM Doubler 8 Upgrade Adds Speed, Stability -- Connectix Corporation released a free upgrade to its memory optimization tool RAM Doubler last week, tweaking the utility's speed and offering greater stability. This release follows on the heels of the RAM Doubler 8 upgrade, free to registered users of RAM Doubler 2.x (see "Free RAM Doubler 8 Update" in TidBITS-439). Version 8.0.1 resolves problems using the RAM Doubler control panel with older versions of the Finder in low-memory situations, speeds up application launches on PowerPC-based Macs with large amounts of memory, and fixes a rare problem where a write-protection fault by other applications could freeze the computer. The updater is a 390K download. [JLC]
