From the readme file:

Apple's Color Disk contains two extensiuons to Macintosh system software that greatly enhance your ability to work with color and/or gray-scale images.

- 32-Bit QuickDraw enhances color support for Macintosh II and SE/30 computers by breaking the 256-color barrier. With 16-bit and 32-bit video cards, you can display the full range of visible color. Even if your Macintosh II or SE/30 is equipped with an 8-bit video card, you will be able to manipulate and view data with more than 256 colors. In addition, 32-Bit QuickDraw provides better support for gray scale image processing.

- LaserWriter 6.0 is intended to support color PostScript printers. It also supports halftone printing of gray-scale images and halftone printing of color images on monochrome PostScript printers such as Apple LaserWriter printers.

While it was released as "Apple Color Disk", it's actually two 800K floppies. One with 32-Bit QuickDraw 1.0 & LaserWriter 6. The other with some demo graphics and simple applications that use 32-Bit QuickDraw.
