=== Disclaimer: I'm a Certified Flare Instructor, and a MadCap MVP, though I
do not work for MadCap. ===

For those of you who might be interested, I posted a pre-release review of
MadCap Flare V5 on my blog today.

I review the following new features in Flare V5:

1. Workspace improvements in both XML Editor and Source Code View
2. DITA Support
3. PDF Target Enhancements
4. Relationship Tables
5. Other Enhancements
- Topic Tool bars
- Thumbnail Image Support
- Text Redaction Support
- Improved Performance
- Conditions in Project Organizer
- Backup Differences
- New Toolbar buttons

If any of that is of interest to you, you can check out the complete review

NOTE: Like all beta testers, I'm under an NDA agreement with MadCap with
regards to Flare V5. However, I received written permission from MadCap to
publish an early review of Flare V5. MadCap did not influence my post in any
way, nor were they allowed to read it before I posted it pubicly. That said,
my post reflects my own opinion based on my personal experience with Flare
