But in your previous post, you quoted Adobe as saying "...moving forward,
Adobe's planned development efforts for FrameMaker will focus on the Windows
and Solaris platforms."
It seems to me they're saying that "development efforts" for FrameMaker have
already been "planned." I _don't_ see any implication that there won't be a
next version; I see an implication that there _will_ be.
Maybe I'm a cockeyed optimist, but it seems reassuring to me. :-)
