Conflict Catcher Completes Mac OS 8.5 Compatibility -- Casady & Greene today released a free update to Conflict Catcher 8.0, adding full Mac OS 8.5 compatibility.

The 8.0.2 update also includes support for more monitor types, along with additional descriptions of startup files. For more information about Conflict Catcher 8, see "Nice Catch, Conflict Catcher" in TidBITS-446. The 8.0.2 updater is a 1.8 MB download. [JLC]<http://db.tidbits.com/article/05086>

To expand all the visible columns to that width, Option-double-click the handle.
