Thanks, Peter, for the clarification about who did what. As I was looking around to see when the RoboHelp sunset rumors were floating around, I also learned that it was Macromedia as well that had slated RoboHelp to be sunset (Google RoboHelp Sunset). Adobe's only fault, then, was to leave the RoboHelp community in the dark for over a year. That (circa 2005) was when I switched to Help&Manual, which at the time was much more powerful than RoboHelp or Flare (which was still in beta).
