NetObjects has confirmed that it is scrapping the Mac version of its Web-development software, NetObjects Fusion.

Speculation that the Mac-snub move was imminent was fuelled by the fact the Windows version is in version 5.0, whereas the Mac software has stayed at version 3.0, with no update since July 1998.

The company says owners of version 3.0 of NetObjects Fusion for the Mac can migrate to Version 4 for Windows for free.

The company will support existing customers running NetObjects Fusion 3.0 on Mac OS 7.6.1 to 8.1 and Power Mac to Power Mac 8600 until December 31, 2000.
