FrameMaker 12 and FrameMaker XML Author 12: Recorded Webinar

FMXA small for blogs We held our first public live webinar broadcast of FrameMaker 12, FrameMaker XML Author and FrameMaker Publishing Server on January 28th, 2014. We have recorded our webinar and provide this blog to give you important time stops in the recording that you may fast forward to.

Unlike most of our webinars, this session is over 2 hours long due to the many significant new features added to our products. In fact there is a new product: FrameMaker XML Author 12; designed as a designated XML-only authoring solution (at 40% of the list price of a full FrameMaker 12 license).
