AmberRAM is a replacement for the AmigaDOS RAM disk. Like the original, it
is non-block-oriented and dynamically sized.

Advantages over the official AmigaOS 3.9 RAM disk:

  - Faster.
  - Provides accurate information about space utilisation.
  - Isn't always 100% full. Free memory is included in disk size.
  - More space efficient.
  - Allows deletion of hard-linked, non-empty directories (the directory
    contents are preserved, as the link is converted into a real directory).
  - Can be write protected.
  - Can be properly dismounted (resources are freed).

Disadvantages:

  - "Volume full" requester is never displayed.
  - Directories can't be created from Workbench under AmigaOS 3.0 or 3.1.
  - Record locking is unsupported.

This package is released under the GNU Lesser General Public Licence.

Changes in this version:

  - Fixed null-pointer accesses that occurred when a notification reply was
    received after EndNotify() had been called.
  - Fixed bugs related to reading and writing a file at the same time.
  - Files that are protected from deletion can no longer be overwritten with
    a new file of the same name.
  - Changed default volume name from 'RAM Disc' to 'RAM Disk'.
  - Changed licence from GPL to LGPL.
