Changes for v1.0.0 - v1.0.1

  • Fixed: Bug 1181 Folding symbol is invisible on black background
  • Fixed persistence of "complete cloning" across cut/paste.
  • Fixed save of notes, when containing tabs
  • Clones can be deactivated by menu
  • Fixed #1178 [Shared map] Nodes are lost when moving them through drag & drop

Changes for v0.9.0 - v1.0.0

  • WOW Features
  • Clones: nodes and its sub-nodes can be cloned. The two copies will then be synchronized
  • Collaboration: two or more people can work simultaneously on the same map
  • Restore complete session
  • Location based mindmapping
  • Spell checking on input
  • Clones
  • Copy a node via Edit -> Copy
  • Paste a clone of this node (and its children) via Edit -> Paste as Clone
  • Both source and destination nodes get a (CLONE) symbol (you can disable this in the file
  • Every change to the source or the destination node will be synchronized on the other one.
  • This works after saving and loading later on, too.
  • It is possible to have clones inside of other clones.
  • It is impossible to move a clone into another clone of the same node.
  • 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.
  • Use cases:
  • Store interesting places (eg. restaurants or business partner addresses)
  • Organize a geographical search. Examples: house hunting
  • holiday location
