Changes for v1.0.0 RC 5 - v1.0.0

  • To disable a clone, move to the source node and choose "Clone node" again (The UI must be tweaked, IMHO)
  • Collaboration
  • You can share a map in your network.
  • To do this, you need to specify a port and a password. Then you are the master.
  • Others that reach your master-host and the port can connect with the password.
  • They will get exactly the same map as a local copy.
  • Each change from any participants is distributed among all participants.
  • To end the collaboration, just choose "Share map" again. Then, some seconds later, all clients see, that the collaboration has ended.
  • The title of the window shows the hostname, port and the participants of the collaboration.
  • Observe, that there is little security around. Only the password is present, but the communication is in plain.
  • Restore session
  • FreeMind loads each map opened in the last session,
  • restores the zoom and
  • the last selected nodes.
  • This feature can be switched off in the preferences.
  • Location Based Mind Mapping
  • Now, you can associate nodes of a mindmap with geographical locations. Each node can have at most one location.
