Frontier "4.2.3b3 Upgrade". Use "Stanford's Frontier-webmaster list" for discussion. Thanks!
MacWEEK: Qualcomm is the new owner of AIMS.
Interesting idea: We could implement Netcaster's push functionality with Frontier and MacBird and menu sharing. See the "Brief Report on Netcaster"
for an idea of how it would work and CDF Support in Frontier for an
idea of what kind of scheduling information is needed. It would also work with MSIE... I'm going to stay focused on 4.2.3, so if anyone wants
to give this a try, go for it!

InfoWorld: Ellison says Apple deal is looking more likely.
I searched the Netscape site looking for a spec like Microsoft's CDF but came up empty. For now it appears the only way to
push content at NetCaster is with a Marimba transmitter.
On the other hand, according to news.com, 15 software companies, including
Freeloader, Wayfarer and Datachannel, will be providing servers that can talk to NetCaster, so it doesn't appear to be a lock-in for
I'm still looking for the spec.
