    Nothing has been announced. Or even seriously rumored.

    Time will tell.

    Your current version of Fusion should run just fine on the Mac if you install Windows with something like Boot Camp or Parallels.

    Not "native", but works well. :-)

    Not true. From Steve Rubenstine (who is, I believe, the CEO of NoF)
    Agreed. NetObjects Fusion 3 was the last Mac version. We believe there is a market opportunity and think NetObjects Fusion compares favorably with existing applications like Freeway and RapidWeaver. We're evaluating the scope of work; a Mac version is in our long term plan.
    From the thread http://forums.netobjects.com/showthr...A-*nix-version

    Mind you, it would be helpful if people would read the forum before raising an issue that's already been raised not long before.

    Long term plans are just that - long term.

    I haven't spoken with Steve lately, but I'm pretty sure the focus with the resources at hand is on getting a new Windows release out the door.

    When that will happen is unknown.

    I'd be kinda surprised to see a Mac version in the next 18-24 months.

    It would be cool and could take over the Mac web design market, when/if it happens.

    If your "long term plan" is 24 months, then it's not long term; it's never. As per my post in the other thread, I figure they've got 18 months max to do it otherwise they'll have missed the boat. Mind you, I'm not in the closed loop so I'm talking in general terms, but I do believe there is such a substantial market awaiting them in the Mac/*nix arena that it would be worth acquiring extra programming resources to get it done. But then, as I said, I'm not privy to the financial data so anything I say must be generalizing.

    Add me to the list of those in misery.

    I'm a cheap SOB, but I'd pay cash money for a MAC version.
