Lab Adopting Netscape Communicator Version 4.72 to Fix Bugs Over Certificates
Netscape users who have recently encountered problems with security certificates can get relief with Netscape Communicator Version 4.72. The Computing Infrastructure Technology Group is making Netscape Communicator Version 4.72 available as the Lab's standard application for email and calendaring beginning Monday, April 10. The upgrade is intended to fix a few bugs with the current version, 4.5. The most noticeable problem is with the inability of the current version to read some computer security certificates, resulting in a barrage of prompt boxes on users' screens. The new Netscape version will be available from the Lab's software download page through a site-wide licensing agreement with Netscape.
