Freeplane slips out of Beta (updated)

Jul 28th, 2010 | By | Category: Mindmapping software, one

Freeplane first appeared in Mind-Mapping.Org last year but recently they announced that they were on a stable, live release: 1.1.1

They list the most important new features as these:

  • Better inline editor for all plain text nodes
  • Edge-like connectors (available from connector pop-up menu)
  • External bitmap and SVG images can be attached & the dialog has file previews
  • Images can be scaled and reset
  • New scripting API
  • Loading and execution of external Groovy scripts
  • F-Toolbar
  • Find or Replace in all open maps
  • Full-screen mode
  • Hidden Edge Style
  • Horizontal Edge Style
  • Hot keys can be set
  • Outline view
  • Spell checker
  • Structured HTML paste

There is also a portable version that can be run from a thumb-drive.

I updated this post with an image of the full Freeplane window to show the interface!  Click the image to see it larger.

Just a word of warning, if you use McAfee’s SiteAdvisor, you may get a message about this being a dangerous download.  I did, so sent  [Updated: SiteAdvisor no longer giving the warning.]  I uploaded the installer to virustotal.com for a check, and all 41 of the A-V engines there, including McAfee, said it was clean (you can check the report here).
