GhostBuster is a commodity for use with WB3.5 and WB3.9, which is useful for
people who use their CD-ROM drives regularly for playing audio CD's, or use MS
DOS formatted disks.

When a Music CD is inserted, or a floppy (with CrossDOS, fat95, etc),
the Workbench will show two icons, one of which is ghosted. This may
be a bit unsightly to some people, and to hide this icon, you can change
the Workbench preferences to hide the icons of these devices. This is
fine until you remove these disks, and insert, say, an AACD. To see the
icon again, you must reset the preferences back. I find this to be a bit
annoying, so I created GhostBuster, which will only show the icons of
valid disks.

This is version 2.1.
I have fixed a minor bug that appeared in both preferences programs, where if a
device was not mounted, but was present in the preferences list, and a disk was
inserted, a requester would pop up, asking for volume (device name) to be
inserted.

I have also added a new feature for OS3.9 users. The titlebar option has been
changed, and now has a third option, where the titlebar will pop up when the
mouse is at the top of the screen, and remain hidden when it isn't.

Finally, a some users have been sending me catalogs, and one person sent me a
really nice icon. Included are a new icon, a German catalog file, and a Spanish
catalog.

V2.0 featured replacements for the Workbench preferences
programs that come with Workbench 3.5 and 3.9. Also included is a utility for
users whose first language is not English to create their own catalog files for
their preferred language.

I have included the source code in this version (note: this was pre-OS3.9 NDK
coming out).
It's written in C, and was originally compiled using DICE. Some alterations may
be required to compile it with Storm or vbcc.
I've also included a fixed version of the catalog compiler.
