Microsoft primps IE 5.0 with new betas

In a related note, Microsoft is readying new releases in the Internet Explorer 5.0 family, including a Service Pack, a point release, and Macintosh version.

Internet Explorer 5.0 Service Pack 1 (SP1) will contain a group of bug fixes and responses to common customer issues and will eventually be provided for free to users of IE 5.0. Internet Explorer 5.01, meanwhile, will incorporate the fixes in IE 5.0 SP1 with some enhancements that will put it on par with the version of IE that eventually ships in Windows 2000.

Features for the Macintosh version are currently unknown. All three versions of IE 5.x should be available by the fall
