At the STC Summit in Minneapolis last week, I was disappointed that MadCap Software was not yet demonstrating its print-centric product called Blaze (their “FrameMaker alternative”). New development of help authoring tools has been somewhere between slow and non-existent for much of this decade. MadCap Flare has helped to break this stagnation by motivating other help authoring tool vendors to increase their level of innovation. We look forward to seeing the effect of similar pressure on the Adobe FrameMaker development team. Competition is good.
