Macromedia announced the availability of Macromedia RoboHelp X5, the latest version of the industry standard help authoring tool used by developers and technical writers to create professional help systems
and documentation for desktop and web-based applications. Macromedia acquired eHelp, the makers of RoboHelp, in December 2003. With RoboHelp X5, users can leverage powerful new features including support for XML, PDF import/export, content management, distributed workforces, team authoring capabilities, as well as the newly released JavaHelp™ 2.0 from Sun Microsystems.
RoboHelp X5 also includes FlashHelp, a bandwidth-efficient and firewall-friendly help format based on Macromedia Flash that is consistent across popular browsers and platforms. With more companies delivering rich Internet applications using Flash, the ability to include integrated help within these improved user experiences will further their adoption. Intelligent PDF import in RoboHelp X5 makes PDF content both editable and exportable as native help content.
