New Microsoft releases conform to Java ruling

Microsoft Corporation has released new versions of its Windows NT 4.0 Service Pack 4 (SP4), Internet Explorer, and Java Virtual Machine (JVM) that conform to a court ruling that requires the company to support specific Java technology developed by Sun Microsystems. In fact, what all of these releases share in common is the new JVM: The only change to IE is the new JVM, while the only change to SP4 is the inclusion of the new IE. Additionally, Microsoft has released a new Year 2000 Inspection Utility that will help you choose the right downloads to remain Y2K-compliant.

The new releases can be downloaded from the Microsoft Support site
