Netscape 2.0b5 Available

Netscape 2.0b5 Available -- Netscape released version 2.0b4 of Netscape Navigator late last month, but we aren't going to talk about it much since 2.0b5 just appeared. Version 2.0b5 expires 01-Mar-96 and does not include the much-delayed support for Java, although it does fix file corruption problems with some FTP downloads and troubles with PowerBook 5300s. The release also rolls in a "What's New" feature for bookmarks (letting you check for outdated or changed bookmarks), regains compatibility with System 7.0, and incorporates a number of user interface changes (some of which have met with mixed response). This release also purports to be more stable, although that claim is not evidenced on my machines. The archive is about 2500K; please see the release notes if you're thinking about using this release. [GD] 2.0b5.sit.hqx relnotes/mac-2.0b5.html
