CloneCD was recently acquired by SlySoft Inc. Now the new owners are about to release the first update to the CD duplicator software that has been lagging behind in development. And they have been able to make concrete improvements, as the next version is able to bypass Safedisc 2.9 protection. The AlienTech.it had the chance to preview the upcoming CloneCD release.
We can be very enthusiast of Slysoft's update to CloneCD: Virtual CloneDrive can be replaced with other utility as Daemon Tools until Slysoft's engineer will create one. The most important news is the ability to backup SafeDisc 2.9 protected cd. We still wait for the capability of bypass Securom New 4.8, but we are sure we don't have to wait a lot for it!Source: AlienTech.it
So it looks like that the fox vs. sheep interaction is actually a good thing :-)
