As
a reaction to this yesterday there were several suggestions on a FH
list that Adobe should also publish an illustrator to Freehand
migration guide....

"out
of curiousity I was just checking out the Freehand FAQ on the
MacroMedia page, and the software is not officially dead, although the
language is quite vague...

When will the next version of FreeHand be released?
The 
current version is FreeHand 11.0.2. Adobe continues to plan new 
products and releases, but is unable to disclose product roadmaps for 
FreeHand or any other product at this time.

It
will never be ""officially dead"" they will sell it to whoever wants to
buy it just like they still sell pagemaker...I will be curious to see
how long it takes for a stable intel mac version of Freehand to be
released (that will be a real test) and if it has any new features and
if any of FH's features make it into Illustrator CS3 or 4.
