Flare 4 was just released today by Madcap Software. In this podcast, I talk with Sharon Burton — product manager at Madcap Software — about all the main features of the Flare 4 release.
Flare 4 topics we discuss include the following:
- Page layouts
- New outputs (PDF, XPS, XHTML, and Adobe Air)
- Enhanced reporting capability
- Built-in topic reviews
- Additional help guides
- Global project linking
- Image resizing
- Smart cross-references
- Mini-TOCs for print
Although Flare 4 is the core focus of this podcast, Sharon also explains a little about Madcap’s other new releases, including Blaze, X-Edit, and Analyzer.
As if releasing 4 new products (Flare 4, Blaze, Analyzer, and X-Edit) on one day wasn’t enough, Madcap also totally redesigned its website.
