Speed Doubler 8.1.2 Update Nabs Bugs

Connectix has released Speed Doubler 8.1.2, which fixes a number of bugs and improves compatibility with a handful of applications and utilities. The Faster File Copying feature now works under a locked startup volume, cleans up spring-loaded folders properly, and doesn’t crash if a copy window is placed off screen, among other changes. The update also fixes a problem under Mac OS 8.5 that caused a crash when clicking OK or Cancel in the Copy Agent schedule configuration dialog. Connectix is recommending that all users of Speed Doubler versions 8.0, 8.0.1, 8.1 or 8.1.1 upgrade to 8.1.2, which is available as a free 516K download.
