I'd certainly think not, as Adobe has just come out with their new
Adobe Technical Communications Suite, which contains FM 8, Robohelp
7, Captivate 3, and a few odds and ends. I believe this says that
they've not only gotten over the idea of us trying to use InDesign
for everything, but it's also a pretty strong commitment to the
continuation of FM as a product as well.
