Speaking of updated software to be included with Mac OS 8, we have received word from Apple that the previously mentioned bug-fix Drive Setup 1.3 will be released as part of Mac OS 8. It will likely be available separately some time after that.
Open Transport 1.2 will ship with Mac OS 8. According to Apple, "this version will fix some significant bugs." OpenDoc 1.2 and Cyberdog 2.0 will also be included with Mac OS 8.
