I've used the beta version of V4, and just got the release version
last week (Windows version). They've swapped a few menu items around
and added an icon bar below the menu bar that you can customize (similar
to WordPerfect for Windows). I have used (and still use at work) version 3
since it came out, and I haven't had to go to the book for anything (yet).

If you're proficient with v3, you shouldn't have a problem upgrading
to v4. You might have to hunt through a few menus to find some things,
but it shouldn't be a show stopper.

Be aware that if you're sharing documents between different machines, you
can't open a v4 document in v3 (unless you save it in MIF format first,
which means you might lose some information). We're facing this problem
at work, where we have a combination Unix (DECstation 3100s/Xwindows) and
PC environment. I've heard no news about FrameMaker version 4 for our DEC
workstations. :(
