The Omni Group has posted the first release candidate (RC) of
for download from its Web site. While it’s not quite ready for prime time and still has some outstanding bugs, this version fixes many problems with the final Beta and offers many performance enhancements. OmniWeb 5.0 RC1 requires Mac OS X v10.2 and is a free download from the Omni Group Web site, but it will stop working when the next release candidate becomes available. Users who purchase OmniWeb 4.5 will receive a free upgrade to version 5.0 when it’s released later this year. Current users who want to upgrade early
can do so through The Omni Group’s online store.
