Yes, the Frame people have confirmed this over and over to anxious OS/2
users--because it's late!

The native OS/2 version was promised for 4th calendar quarter 1995, but has been
delayed due to muss and bother of the acquisition by Adobe. Reports about the
beta version have floated around OS/2 circles. It's not a port but a native re-write,
with complete cross-platform file portability and feature-set equivalency, as is
usual with Frame.

Owners of any current version of Frame 5.0 are supposedly going to be able to
move to Frame 5.0 for OS/2 at minimal cost.
