What’s New in Flare 12

Last week, MadCap Software announced the release of Flare 12. From what I saw on their website, it looks like an evolutionary release, with most features aimed at making life easier for help authors. Paul Pehrson has written a blog post in which he looks at some of the new features in more detail. I do like the abilitiy of the CSS editor to have more than one media query open at the same time and the conditional styles would also be useful – I do something similar in FrameMaker using a FrameScript to apply a conditional to a specific paragraph style for a note to reviewers.

Hey everybody! It’s that awesome time of year when MadCap releases the latest and greatest iteration of MadCap Flare. This year, we’re getting MadCap Flare 12, with a host of new features and enhancements that improve the authoring experience. One of the great things about Flare 12 is that there is a nice mix of features that help our customers, as well as features that help us as help authors create and manage content in Flare.

If you haven’t already, I recommend you peruse the MadCap Flare 12 page on MadCap’s website to see the features that they are promoting in Flare 12.  I can’t possibly comment on every new feature; I don’t have the time, and I’m sure you don’t have the patience (grin), so instead, let me tell you the features that I’m most excited about in Flare 12 with the reasons why I’m excited about them.
