It seems like sooner or later every website resorts to doing “quickies” updates periodically just to clean out a list of software updates or links or whatever out of the queue. Sometimes it’s nigh on impossible to think of anything new to say about a program if you’ve talked about how great is is multiple times in the past, so just telling people there is a new version is sometimes enough.
In the category of new software we’ve got Mozilla 0.9.8 which just showed up on Tuesday, NetBeans is up to 3.3.1 (a major bugfix release), Sun has released JDK 1.4 Release Candidate 1, Bouvard & Pecuchet is up to version 1.2, Lumbermill has had new releases since I last talked about it, as has the Java Outline Editor.
