Adobe Systems Incorporated announced a new version of FrameMaker, its enterprise authoring and publishing solution. FrameMaker version 7.0 software allows corporations to take advantage of XML’s ability to search, share and repurpose content across the enterprise. The new XML capabilities allow content creators to distribute information to multiple channels, including print, the Web and PDAs. Also announced is the new Adobe FrameMaker Server, which gives companies the ability to produce personalized, data-driven content for output to print or PDF. Users can choose to work in the structured environment to address single-source information publishing needs and create valid XML files, or choose a simpler interface to create well-formed XML files for general word-processing usage. Adobe’s new FrameMaker Server software gives companies the ability to extract existing content housed in databases, document management systems and XML repositories to be manipulated in FrameMaker. Adobe FrameMaker 7.0 and FrameMaker Server 7.0 will be available in the second quarter of 2002 in the United States, Europe and Canada. Estimated street price for FrameMaker 7.0 desktop version will be US$799 for the full product with a special 90-day post ship upgrade offer (Mac and Windows only) of US$209 (US$349 thereafter). Estimated street price for FrameMaker Server 7.0 will be US$7,999. www.adobe.com/products/framemaker
