Netscape Release Dates

Postby joewill » Thu 12 Mar, 2009 1:53 pm

I'm hoping this hasn't been answered before. I didn't see it after searching the forums.

Does anyone know and can post here or know of a link that lists all of the Netscape version numbers, releases dates/times, as well files sizes and correct file names? I'm looking for NS9xx all the way back to Mosaic 0.x. Some of the dates on ftp.netscape.com seem to be wrong from what I can tell.

What I am trying to do is to create a time line as well as an FTP-esque web site.

Thanks,
Joe

You should see many of the dates in retro section, Communicator 4.8 section, Netscape 6, Netscape 7 section, Netscape 8 and Navigator 9 sections.

Yep, Sorry, I forgot about Holger Metzger's site.

Holger and Jay Garcia both did great work for Netscape community.

It took a look and found some of what I need. I am still looking for the full dates. For example, March 14, 2009 is what I am looking for rather than March, 1009..

Jay Garcia would probably know. You might post over on the UFAQ, where he will see your questions:

I just saw it and Jay's response.

Good luck with your site, and post bacl here and at the UFAQ when you have something for us to look it, it sounds interesting.
