Another in the line of the 4.7x family of browsers from Netscape has been released. New features include Flash 4.0 support for Linux and Solaris, RealPlayer 7 for folks in the Windows world, and a 2.6 release of the Winamp MP3 player. You can get more info on this upgrade by checking out the release notes.
