Its Internet Explorer 4.0 browser is still delayed by security issues. Netscaoe plans to release the final version of Communicator during the first half of this year.
Netscape officials said the preview release will feature a security button that gives the ability to send and receive encrypted E-mail messages based on the S/MIME standard.
The release will contain support for the object-signing model in Java Development Kit 1.1; an extension to Java security which lets Java applets access information from a computer?s file system but first alerts the user; and a security advisor for managing passwords.
