Communicator 4.61 Adds Stronger Encryption -- Netscape Communications has posted version 4.61 of Netscape Communicator, adding 56-bit DES ciphers for the U.S. and export versions, an updated AOL Instant Messenger 2.0, and various bug fixes. Contrary to the release notes, this version contains RealNetworks' RealPlayer 5.0, not RealPlayer G2; also missing is Apple's QuickTime browser plug-in. A version supporting 128-bit encryption is also available for U.S. and Canadian citizens. (See "Netscape Communicator 4.6 Available" in TidBITS-481.) According to Netscape, some printing problems introduced in version 4.6 are not resolved in the current release, as they require an architectural change in the program's printing model. Netscape 4.61 requires Mac OS 7.6.1 or later and a PowerPC-based system. [JLC]
