The Logical Blog by IconLogic

In the good old days, software companies released major upgrades to their products every 2-3 years. Like it or not, the upgrade cycles have gotten shorter and shorter. How long was it between Adobe Captivate 5 and 6? Adobe has promised a more aggressive upgrade cycle for its programs that will make even the recent upgrade cycles look almost snail-like.

by Kevin Siegel I've been using, writing about and teaching Captivate since, well. before the program was known as Captivate. I've seen all of the upgrades.

Adobe didn't just upgrade the program, they tore it down and rebuilt it.
