Beta version 0.13 of NCSA Mosaic for the X Window System, a networked
information systems and World Wide Web browser, is hereby released:


This release of NCSA Mosaic is known to compile on the following

  SGI (IRIX 4.0.2) 
  IBM (AIX 3.2)
  Sun 4 (SunOS 4.1.3 with stock X11R4 and Motif 1.1, and GCC).
  DEC Ultrix.

More binaries will be supplied as I am able to find other
Motif-configured platforms to use.  (Contributions of working
binaries, or development systems, are welcome.)  Documentation is
available online.

Changes since 0.12 include:

 o Fixed occasional mysterious coredump in startup routines. 
 o Fixed occasional stupid coredump in freeing document text. 
 o Fixed silly coredump on accessing malformed URLs like
 o Fixed URL parsing choke on accessing URL 'test.html#foobar' as
   an initial program argument. 
 o Added system() call error reporting. 
 o Changed default anchor representations: blue and single solid
   underline for unvisited, dark purple and single dashed underline
   for visited. 
 o Jumping from 2nd+ document page to 1st document page in a
   single document via anchors works now. 
 o Various glitches with scrollbars, document pages, etc. fixed. 
 o New toggle-button options (caseless, backwards) in File->Search
