The predecessor to FrameMaker+SGML is FrameBuilder, which was first prototyped at Frame Technology in 1992.[1][2] FrameBuilder was introduced in a Developer Edition at Seybold San Francisco Expo in September of that year. It supported high-end workstations from Sun Microsystems running X/Motif.[3]

After Adobe completed its acquisition of Frame Technology in 1995,[4] FrameBuilder became FrameMaker+SGML and was released in the following versions:[1]

  • Adobe FrameMaker+SGML (based on FrameMaker 5)
  • Adobe FrameMaker+SGML 5.5
  • Adobe FrameMaker+SGML 6.0

The features of FrameMaker+SGML were eventually merged into the main product line with Adobe FrameMaker 7.[1]
