XMind 6 Public Beta Now Available


XMind is mind mapping and brainstorming software with management elements to capture ideas, clarify thinking, manage complex information, and promote team collaboration.

In this release, the team brings forward eight big new features and a dozen significant improvements, along with most of known bugs fixed.

For third-party developers, the platform features and API of XMind are said to be stable.

New in this release is the "Idea Factory", a function to record and collect inspirations further and faster.

"A timer stays to let us control the session time. The night mode decreases light and protects your eyes in a dark room. Full-screen and a stress-free scene, here, makes you take all attention on capturing the inspiration and sparkles in your mind. Then, you'll find the solution is hidden within them. We can discover it by evaluating, organizing, and connecting the ideas," said the development team.

As a popular note-taking and archiving application, Evernote is used by tens of millions of users, also including a large number of XMind users. So now we see support for saving XMind files into Evernote note include: image, attachment, and text. By this way, we can send our maps across different devices and get access to them easily.

According to the development team, "Our new Theme Editor provides you an efficient way to easily modify your favorite themes and design a new theme. You can preset styles of central topics, main topics, subtopics, and floating topics. Also, the styles of relationships, boundaries, summaries, and the wallpaper. Edit the properties and then save it to the theme view for future usage."
