Netscape is to remove the Java logo from the most recent version of its browser following Sun's lawsuit against Microsoft for non-compliance with the terms of the Java licence.
A Netscape spokesperson admitted that the company was still working on providing full support for the Java Development Kit with the latest version of Communicator, 4.04. For this reason it has decided to remove the Java logo of a steaming coffee cup to ensure there is no misunderstanding with users or Sun Microsystems, the Java licensor.
Given Sun's recent round of litigation with Microsoft over breaches in the Java licence, it is believed Netscape was being cautious as well as making a point to Microsoft about compliance. The logo is expected to return with the release of Communicator 5.0 next June.
