Given Adobe's historical 18-month release cycle, I would be surprised to
see a new FrameMaker release within a couple of months. (I believe
FrameMaker 7.2 shipped in September 2005). Pleasantly surprised, of course.
The Creative Suite is somewhat closer to the end of an 18 month cycle
(April 2005), and Acrobat 7 has been out even longer. Given the
propensity of even internal Adobe folks to confuse products like
"PageMaker" and "FrameMaker", I might speculate that the source was
mis-informed. Only Adobe knows for certain, however.
