Netscape 7.0 Preview Release 1

Wednesday May 22nd, 2002

Netscape today unveiled Netscape 7.0 Preview Release 1, the first beta of its successor to Netscape 6. The preview is based on the recent Mozilla 1.0 RC2 build and features most of the enhancements that have been added to Mozilla since Netscape 6.2 was released, including tabbed browsing, print preview, the ability to save complete web pages, email return receipts, message labels and S/MIME support.

Netscape's proprietary components have also been improved. An enhanced Instant Messenger now supports file transfers, buddy icons and communication with ICQ users (though you cannot be signed on to both AIM and ICQ at the same time). Also new is Radio@Netscape, a streaming audio service powered by Spinner.

Netscape 7.0 Preview Release 1 is available from Netscape's web site or FTP server. Marketing spiel can be found at the Netscape 7.0 Info Center.

First of all, my english is very poor, so may be I'll make some mistakes writing this response... Well, here is the solution. Netscape website says that you just have to change the locale to "en_US". I'm a RedHat user and I'll supose that this problem happens in only this distribution. Just type locale_config (/usr/bin/locale_config) in a console session, type your root password and select "English (USA) en_US" in the list that is shown. Close that window (OK Button) and try to run netscape again. If you want to run netscape from the console, first close the console sesion (if it's opened) and open it again to start session with the new locale, and execute netscape.

One more time, excuse my english.

Bye, JKD
