TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
Madcap software just announced a new version of Flare that works on
the server side, and actually lets customers update the documentation,
themselves. Not sure about all of the details of implementation, but
might be worth looking into.
Good luck, and let us know what you choose, and whether it ends up
working for you. We'd love to know about it. (Well, okay, *I* would
love to know about it. I can't speak for everyone else ;-).
