eWeek reports IE Update “extension” for “small set of customers”

Today eWeek reported that “Web developers [will get] an extra 60 days to continue making preparations’ for the IE update that changes the way the browser handles ActiveX controls. From eWeek:

Michael Wallent, general manager of the Microsoft Windows Client Platform, confirmed that the changes will be included in a cumulative IE security update that’s on tap to ship on April 11 and said the 60-day extension would apply only to a “small set of customers.”

Wallent, who hosted the call with lead program manager Kellie Eickmeyer, said some enterprise customers have requested more time to ensure that applications that require ActiveX controls work without major disruptions.
