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.
