Communicator 4.61 Out

Tuesday June 15th, 1999

A new Communicator is at the ftp site, with more bugfixes. ZuperDee writes, "For those of you waiting patiently for Communicator 5.0 to be released, Netscape has now released 4.61. It contains some security enhancements, and various bugfixes. You can find it here. Notice that it is now in a different place from where it used to go."

Thanks to ZuperDee and Peter Fabian for the news.

I don't claim to know much about what goes on behind the scenes of Netscape development, but I am a little surprised by the continuing work on the 4.x series of browsers. One large component of JWZ's now-famous departing rant was the fact that Netscape is poorly allocating resources, with excessive (in his opinion) effort on 4.x support and insufficient drive towards 5.0. As I said, I don't know what the distribution of development effort is at this moment, but having seen three 4.x's released since Jamie's resignation, I am curious what Netscape's master plan is. Anybody have any insight?
