Conflict Catcher 8.0.7 Available -- Casady & Greene has released Conflict Catcher 8.0.7, the latest version of their venerable utility for managing extensions, control panels, and the myriad files that enhance (or degrade!) your Mac's functionality. (See "Nice Catch, Conflict Catcher" in TidBITS-446 for a review of Conflict Catcher 8.) Version 8.0.7 fixes a handful of bugs, adds base sets for Mac OS 9.0.2 and 9.0.4, updates its reference library, and includes new groups for the Apple DVD Player, QuickTime, and Multiple Users. The update is free for registered users of Conflict Catcher 8 and is a 1.4 MB download; otherwise, Conflict Catcher is $70 via electronic delivery ($80 for a physical package) and requires a Mac with a 68020 processor or higher and System 7.5 or later.
