AOL Preps New Netscape Release

Posted: 28th May, 2004 By: MarkJ
Global ISP AOL has stated that a new version of its Netscape (based off Mozilla) website browser software will be released soon, although it's not expected to be a major update:

An AOL representative said that the new software will be based on Mozilla 1.7 code developed by Netscape's open-source offshoot. She described it as a relatively minor upgrade that will include a few security patches, but leave the interface mostly unchanged. "This is not a huge step forward," she said.

Netscape 7.2 comes amid speculation that AOL had all but ceased working on the browser following layoffs last year affecting some 500 developers in California, including most of the team that had been working on Netscape. AOL shifted some programming jobs to other offices within the company, including a new research centre in Bangalore, India.


We note that Mozilla is currently working towards final v1.7 code, with the official release currently up to 'RC2' stage. The first Alpha version of v1.8 has also been released. More @ ZDNet.
