What I find funny about the ORIGINAL posted question regarding the future of Framemaker is that it did not make it into my regular email, my server identified it as spam and junk mail, I just happened to see it as I was deleting it! Who is the original poster of the question, has he spoken up since. Rick

As long a company supports it's products, tries to fix the bugs and is keeping up with other tools of it's kind, there does not have to be a major overhaul in each version. That's the myth that software companies like to perpetuate, in order to give people reasons to keep upgrading to new versions. I think it's mostly psychological. Do you buy a new car every time the next year's model comes out with a few new features?
