Launching a preemptive strike against Mac OS 8.1 incompatibilities, Casady & Greene updated Conflict Catcher to version 4.1 last week. Previous versions of the powerful extension manager and troubleshooting utility will not work at all under Mac OS 8.1. The update includes several advances, including improved support for Apple’s Appearance Manager, more flexible Group Links, and enhanced options for listing and displaying startup files. The 871K update is free to users of Conflict Catcher 4.x; owners of previous versions can upgrade for $29.95 (plus shipping and handling). Users experiencing difficulties reaching Casady & Greene’s FTP server can also try a mirror site.
