Casady & Greene has released a free Conflict Catcher 8.0.4 update which adds support for performing a Clean-Install System Merge under Mac OS 8.5.1, includes Base and All extension sets for Mac OS 8.5.1 (which could be lost using previous versions of Conflict Catcher), and updates the reference library with additional file descriptions (including Sherlock plug-ins).
