It is good news that there probably will be FreeHand MX update. As far as I
know it will be FreeHand MX 2000. Not a new version but a bug fix. (Frankly
I do not need new features like raster effects but since they are now
included I expect them to work properly.)

The bad news is that we most likely have to wait until the release of MX
2000 Studio. Whenever that will be.

This way Macromedia's pointy haired executives and marketing morons can
claim that there is also a new version of FreeHand included in the Studio.

But it only makes our wait even longer.
