Internet Explorer 5.2.1 Released

Internet Explorer 5.2.1 Released — In a singularly unhelpful move, Microsoft has released Internet Explorer 5.2.1 for Mac OS X with absolutely no indication of what has changed. Installing Internet Explorer 5.2.1 did require quitting all running applications, which seems unnecessary, but it didn’t change my home page setting this time (others have reported differently). We presume Microsoft fixed a bug or two, but without release notes of any sort, it’s impossible to recommend the update either way. I’d encourage Microsoft to read "The Seven Deadly Product Release Sins" in TidBITS-491. [ACE]
