V2.6 is a bugfix-release: a persistent bug was introduced somehow. Crude
countermeasures have been taken to address this issue. This gives me some leeway
to find the real cause of the problem.

WBMakeLink is a tool to make links across directories and volumes in a
convenient way. A link is a way to make a file or directory visible in another
directory WITHOUT copying it, thereby saving you from the hazards of multiple
versions of files which are the results of simple copying. See it as a virtual
file (or directory): you can make full use of it in any way you like, but
although you can clearly see the links, the files (or directories) are not
there. Pure magic! 

WBMakelink can be iconified. Icon is an AppIcon. Window sports dropzones for
object, destination and default tool. A link can be made in multiple
destinations (1 file or directory visible in various places).

A file can be linked multiple times to the same destination: the name is then
made unique (upto 1000 links to equally named objects).

UNPACKING: Best unpacked into a directory called WBMakelink_V2.5, wherever you
unpack to.
Upto now I have not found an easy way of packing it INTO such a directory.

(Try it on RAM:. If things go wrong, which I doubt, simply reboot and be done
with it.)

Have fun!
