I use 5.5.3 on Solaris (UNIX) and after reading the FAQ and other assorted details about 5.5.6, I can find no reason to upgrade. I have no use for most of the features (XML, Word 97, Chinese & Korean, Color palette), and the other cool features are not available on UNIX (placed PDF and Adobe Online). Note that this last point about what's NOT available is only in the support announcement (http://www.adobe.com/supportservice/custsupport/NOTES/949e.htm) and not in the official FAQ (frmfaq.pdf) and Features lists. There is one very intriguing comment on http://www.adobe.com/prodindex/framemaker/feature1.html, it says, "You can even save an entire set of books as Adobe PDF, and use converted hypertext links and cross-references to help navigate between them." Has anyone tried this? Does it really work as marketed? What I'd really like is a published list of the bugs that have been fixed since 5.5.3. So, if you beta tested this on UNIX, can you tell me why I should bother to upgrade?
