>     SAN JOSE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan. 16, 2007--Adobe Systems
> Incorporated (Nasdaq:ADBE) today announced Adobe(R) RoboHelp(R) 6, a
> complete, flexible and user-friendly system to create, manage and
> publish software help systems, knowledge bases and documentation for
> desktop and Web-based applications. As a key element of Adobe's
> technical communications product line-up, which includes Adobe
> FrameMaker(R), Adobe Captivate(TM) and Adobe Acrobat(R), RoboHelp 6
> provides all the desktop functionality that authors need to create
> advanced Help content, including table of contents, index, glossary,
> graphics, special effects and context-sensitive Help. Adobe RoboHelp
> Server 6, also introduced today, provides powerful server features
> that ensure the delivery of up-to-date online content, with real-time
> tracking of how end-users engage with the help system that provides
> valuable feedback to Help publishers.
> 
>     "Adobe RoboHelp 6 is a major release and a key milestone in the
> product's 15-year history," said Don Walker, senior director of
> product marketing and business development at Adobe. "RoboHelp 6
> strongly reinforces Adobe's commitment to the technical communications
> market, giving authors what they need to easily develop, manage and
> maintain intuitive software help systems and knowledge bases."
> 
>     "RoboHelp has consistently led the market for the past decade,
> providing superior usability and productivity," said Ron Linyard,
> President and CEO of Unwired Software and former VP of Engineering for
> eHelp. "The software is compatible with a host of formats and
> leverages the benefits of other Adobe products to give users a richer
> experience than other tools provide."
> 
>     With this release, Adobe has consolidated the Adobe RoboHelp
> product family into two simple and powerful choices -- Adobe RoboHelp
> 6 for authoring and Adobe RoboHelp 6 Server for the delivery of online
> content. Users of RoboHelp 6 also benefit from the integration of
> Adobe Captivate 2 for improved workflow and more engaging content with
> simulations and demonstrations. In addition, users can automate the
> building of their help at a predetermined time using command line
> compilation. Conditional Table of Contents (TOC) allows for greater
> control and customization of table of contents. With User Defined
> Variables, changes can be made just once, but seen everywhere in Help.
> Updated Adobe RoboSource Control provides an unique source document
> and version control system for Windows and Web development for both
> individual users and collaborative teams. Adobe PDF creation generates
> support for hyperlinks & bookmarks and enables accessible PDFs.
> Built-in RoboScreenCapture means users don't need to invest in a
> separate application to create and edit screen shots.
> 
>     RoboHelp Server 6 extends and supports the capabilities of Adobe
> RoboHelp 6 to provide a complete online Help and Knowledge Base
> solution. Authors can easily deploy and manage up-to-date online
> content, control and monitor the use of Web-based Help systems in real
> time through a new web-based remote interface, and develop Help
> systems for use with the Microsoft .NET Framework. Also, RoboHelp
> Server 6 includes FlashHelp Pro, a server-based version of FlashHelp
> and provides connectivity with Oracle and SQL databases, formerly sold
> separately in the RoboEngine Connectivity Pack.
> 
>     Adobe RoboHelp 6 gives users more choices to create and publish
> content. Users can import a variety of content created in Microsoft
> Word, Adobe FrameMaker, Adobe PDF, XML and other help projects and
> then publish the content in popular help formats including FlashHelp,
> WebHelp, HTML help, WinHelp, HTML, JavaHelp, OracleHelp for Java and
> even printed documentation output in Adobe PDF and Microsoft Word. The
> customization of content is made easier with conditional text and new
> features like TOC and user defined variables.
> 
>     Pricing and Availability
