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 notice Netscape bothering to put up notices or press-releases advertising 4.6x etc ..... why?

My own theory is that they are realeasing bugfixes so if someone says "My JS is screwed" they can say "Have you got 4.6x? No? Get it.". But in the meantime, maybe it makes sense from a marketing point of view to release nothing with a big media spectacle until 5.0. This would make the 5.0 release something spectacular, the media pundits could go crazy saying "Just as MS had it wrapped up, the new browser from challenger Netscape is faster, better, etc...".
