More Netscape SLIP Patch Info -- We have more information about the recently released update to Netscape 1.1N (see TidBITS-289). First, the patch is intended for SLIP users, and shouldn't make any difference for users with PPP connections or direct Internet access. Second, the patch only applies to Netscape 1.1N; users who purchased Netscape 1.1 and want the patch should download a copy of 1.1N and patch that version. So, if you use a SLIP connection and experience problems with Netscape 1.1, you might want to try the update. Be sure to keep an unpatched version of Netscape around in case the fix doesn't help.
