Adobe Systems Incorporated (Nasdaq:ADBE) announced Adobe FrameMaker 7.2, its enterprise authoring and publishing software. FrameMaker 7.2 software’s Unstructured to Structured Migration Guide details the considerations and the steps required to adopt an XML workflow. The built-in conversion tools that give structure to documents now retain character and paragraph styles. New structured templates give authors an instant starting point for documents. Templates include a sample application of Darwin Information Typing Architecture (DITA). FrameMaker 7.2 adds XML Schema support in addition to its support of Document Type Definitions (DTDs). There is also new support for XSL Transformations (XSLT). Authors can use the new Multiple Undo feature to reverse edits such as Change Font and Import File. The History Palette lets authors view recent changes and undo multiple edits with a single click. Adobe FrameMaker 7.2 for Windows and Solaris is expected to be available in September in English, French and German languages through Adobe Authorized Resellers and the Adobe store. Adobe FrameMaker 7.2, desktop version, for Windows has an estimated street price of US$799 for the full version and US$199 for the upgrade. On Solaris, the full version (personal edition) has an estimated street price of US$1,329 and US$279 for the upgrade. FrameMaker Server has an estimated street price of US$7,999. http://www.adobe.com/products/framemaker
