Adobe Offers Migration Help to FreeHand Users

George Penston asks if the writing is on the wall:

Adobe has just posted a rather comprehensive FreeHand to Illustrator Migration Guide (11MB PDF) as well as a brief technical resource paper (392KB PDF) to their Design Center. Although it’s thoughtful of Adobe to put together such helpful guides for longtime FreeHand users, one can’t help but think the writing is on the wall for FreeHand and its users.

I think the writing has been on the wall all along; Macromedia disbanded the FreeHand development team long before the Adobe deal even took place. I’m pretty sure there’s never going to be another major release of FreeHand.
