Adobes "FrameMaker" lebt: neue Version 8 beweist es und verspricht "technische Dokumente auf Stereoiden"

Wer hätte das gedacht: lange Zeit war es sehr still um Adobes Dokumentations-High-End-Tool "FrameMaker" (Windows, MacOS X). Jetzt kommt eine neue Version mit 3D- und Flash-Unterstützung.

Die Software wird in drei Varianten kommen:

"Three major trends influenced this release", so Ajay Pande, Vice President, PCBU (Print and Classic Publishing Business Unit) bei Adobe. "First, it was clear to us that video is becoming increasingly important to the field of technical communication, and we have added Flash and 3D capabilities so our customers can create more engaging experiences for end users.
Second, businesses are becoming more and more global in scope, and we know that many technical documents need to be available to users around the world, in multiple languages, so FrameMaker 8 now supports Unicode, which is a major step for our product.
And third, technical communicators want to be able to create their content once and then repurpose it in a variety of ways, through multiple publishing channels, including on the web.  This trend is called 'single sourcing', and FrameMaker 8 supports the DITA open standard for single sourcing."
