    This is great!

    I have so many clients that love Contribute to make updates. They came to me after using many other programs, which they hated. Many of them are on Macs.

    The new features are definitely needed.

    Are there any plans to update the Contribute Publishing Server? That is central to our implementation!

    Is Adobe aware of the lack of clear documentation? This page seems very out of date:
