Netscape 7.2 Release Set for August 3rd?

Wednesday July 28th, 2004

Slashdot is reporting that AOL will release Netscape 7.2 on August 3rd, citing the shipping date for the CDs as evidence. While this date is probably a good guideline, it is worth noting that past shipping dates for CDs have not always exactly coincided with the dates new releases have been made available for download. Furthermore, the recent Mozilla security holes may force the date back. Netscape 7.2 is expected to be based on Mozilla 1.7.

They really should have called it 7.5. A .1 increase in version doesn't really reflect all the changes that happened between Mozilla 1.4 and 1.7.

Let's hope they have a Netscape 8 based on Firefox.

But the release on August 3rd will be overshadowed by the release of Doom 3.
