Communicator 4.72 Fixes Handful of Bugs -- Netscape Communications has released Netscape Communicator 4.72, the latest version of its integrated Internet client and HTML authoring application. Although you'd never guess from the release notes, version 4.72 contains no new features. Most users won't need to upgrade unless they're experiencing problems, and Steve Dagley at Netscape tells us changes are generally isolated and minor. Improvements include a more robust font renderer from Bitstream; better verification of IMAP signatures on some IMAP email servers; the capability to handle SSL sites with certification key lengths greater than 2,048 bits; better handling of Base64-encoded JPEG images in email; a fix for a potentially crashing JavaScript bug; proper encoding of high-ASCII name and password data; and newsreader fixes that enable Communicator to handle recycled article IDs. Netscape Communicator 4.72 is a 13.2 MB download and requires a PowerPC-based Mac running Mac OS 7.6.1 or later. [ACE]
