Conflict Catcher v8.0.9, a free update to Casady & Greene’s popular utility, is now available and updated with Mac OS 9.2, sets, links and Clean-Install System Merge information as well as offering additional support for Mac OS X under the Classic Layer with Mac OS 9.2. (Mac OS 9.2 is only available on hardware announced at the recent Macworld New York, and not as a standalone product.)
Conflict Catcher is a tool designed to make it easier to manage startup files and plug-ins, obtain information about each file’s purpose and manufacturer and easily merge an old system folder into a clean system folder. Version 8.0.0 also updates the Open Transport Network Group Link, fixes a problem in the sets activated by the Mac OS X startup set feature, and resolves a serial number issue when booting into the Classic Layer of Mac OS X. It also contains new file definitions for the Reference Library with descriptions for 5,200 files (including descriptions for Sherlock Internet search sites), plug-ins, control panels and extensions.
