Microsoft's Internet Explorer for Unix team has decided to move straight to version 4.0 and dump version 3.0, which was promised last year.
A 4.0 beta version running on Solaris 2.5 is due in the autumn, and a final release is due in the first quarter of next year. A port to HP-UX is also planned, but no dates are available.
Microsoft officials acknowledged that the Version 3.0 code for Unix was not up to par.
IE for Unix was first announced more than a year ago, but Microsoft officials said the company underestimated the difficulty of porting the application to Unix.
