AOL is still working on a Mac OS X version of its software. However, no specific date has been announced for the X version. Meanwhile, some Mac users would like to see version 6.0 of AOL come to their favorite computing platform. It’s slated to arrive this spring, according to AOL spokeswoman Anne Bentley.
If everything stays on schedule, customers would see a finalized version by early June 2001. Bentley said that many of the features released in version 6.0 for Windows will be part of the Mac equivalent, but wouldn’t elaborate. Historically, the Mac version when released, has added a number features exclusive to the Windows version along with new Mac-only enhancements to leverage the differences in the operating systems.
