This is a from scratch development for AmigaOS4.x that aims to be an improved
version of Thore Boeckelmann's diskimage.device for AOS3.x.

Thore's DiskImageCtrl program doesn't work with this device for this reason.
This should not be a problem however as there is now (as of v52.2) a ReAction
GUI that provides the same functionality as this program and more.

Some new features of this device are: no hardcoded limit on the amount of
useable device units, large file support, CD audio tracks and support for many
more diskimage formats through an extensible plugin interface.

After installing a new version of diskimage.device you should always perform a
soft reboot as this is the only way to make sure that the new device version
has been loaded. DiskImageGUI tries to be within reason backwards compatible
with older device versions, but this might not always be perfect, so it's not
recommended to use a newer DiskImageGUI with an older device version (or vice
