Paul's raised an interesting issue here. With the release of the
Technical Communication Suite, which includes Captivate 3, RoboHelp,
and Acrobat 8 3D, the outlook for FM on Mac OS X looks bleaker because
Captivate and RoboHelp are Windows-only applications, and Acrobat on
Mac OS X is short a few important forms and other features because
Apple doesn't expose the hooks they require for developers to program

Perhaps the quote about FM development being frozen related to
Macintosh support, which seems to be even more likely to be permanent
with FM's bundled partner applications in the TCS.
