Where did you see that suggestion?
"a reimplementation of RoboHelp, in a sense"
"modernize the architecture and implementation"
"RoboHelp's internals are old, crufty ... whereas Flare is a new architecture"
I see no suggestion in those statements that Flare is "simply the RoboHelp code base rehashed," and certainly no suggestion that they're not two separate products.
