Had an earlier version - though I didn’t really use it. That one launched, the new one comes up with this:


XMind 2013 Beta has expired. Thank you for helping us evaluate it. You can download the latest version at http://www.xmind.net/ .

I won't rate it for now 'cos I haven't used it enough, but I can say that having problems under my 10.6.8 config with MindManager and MindNode Pro, Xmind seems to work ok instead (probably due to Java) and imports MindManager maps and a lot of other formats (for exporting, you need the Pro version). My problems are surely due to my old system, copied and upgraded through the years, but I have no time to reinstall OSX from scratch so Xmind is an alternative, for the time being. ;-)

Now I see what has irked Rubaiyat.
On booting up the App a dreaded 'provide your xmind id' box appears. No ID prompts you to create one, and that attempt to create crashes the App.
Ticking the small 'don't bother' box (bottom left as you look at it) rather than trying to create a user id takes you straight into Xmind, which gives you basic functionality.
Possibly the id creation area is for trying the xmind pro functionality, (it prompts you for your id if you try and access one of the more esoteric functions in the evaluation copy). Hope this helps.

Wish I'd done my due diligence first...it would have stopped me making three different posts. It appears Xmind is free, but if you want the gantt chart bells and whistles of Xmind Pro, you will have to subscribe at $49 per year!
You can only access your pro features via your id, and failure to renew means you lose all your data one month after your subscription was due.
Never heard anything like it. The free app is ok though!

Xmind Pro is an excellent product - but some important features are missing on the mac version : export to powerpoint is the main miss... export to Word also and export to opml format is also missing.
Stangely the same feature are also missing on Mindjet Mac.
Novamind is the only mindmap witch is able to export to powerpoint or keynote...

ConceptDraw Mindmap Pro has the option to export to PowerPoint, OPML, RTF, Text, and other formats.
They offered version 5.5 for free a few months ago.

IIRC, MindView 3 integrates nicely with Word and PowerPoint. A bit expensive, though, and the Mac version does not have the same features as the Windows one (MindView 2 Business).

I use XMIND Pro 08 and love it. I looked at XMIND 3 and decided to back away. If or when my 08 version breaks, I will probably move to one of the “big boys” even though it will cost me more money. I don't subscribe to software. The 08 versions still works great and does everything I need. It doesn't work and play as well with other as I would wish, but at least I have something to show for my investment.

Subscribing to software, like music, is a suckers bet.

I don't mind that they made it free. However, with each release the program seems to be losing some functionality and since I did purchase the Pro version of XMIND 2008 (2.3.0), these latest releases have been a disappointment.
With version 2.3.0 I imported many custom markers. I've been unable to export them and import them to XMIND 3.

XMIND 3.0 had the options to export as MindJet MindManager Map, PDF Document, and RTF File (Word Compatible). I did not see these options anymore under 3.0.1's Export menu, although it now has the option to export as an XMIND 2008 Workbook.
Under the View Menu, 3.0 had a Gantt Chart option. This is not present under 3.0.1 The same applies to Task Info.

The application's size has gone from 67.4 MB (2.3.0) to 34 MB (3.0) to 31.2 MB (3.0.1). I don't know whether this is a reflection of more efficient coding or just loss of features.

I used to recommend XMIND, and for people who have no similar software this free version is pretty good. I would probably rate it with 4 stars.
But as someone who paid for the Pro version I'm not happy with the direction the company is taking. Their focus seems similar to MindMeister http://www.mindmeister.com/ but I have no need for online mind mapping. MindMeister recently had an attractive offer at MacZot, by the way.

Mindjet also has an online feature that users can buy, but this is in addition to the actual software. I prefer that approach. For now I'll use XMIND 2.3.0 and 3.0, as well as my old copy of NovaMind. Eventually I may go with MindJet MindManager, although the development of their Mac version always seems to lag behind the Windows version.

For people getting this for free, it's certainly a great value. For me, it's obviously not. At least I got it at a discounted price. I can't even imagine how people who actually paid $300 -if there are any- feel about these changes.

Unlike others, I have had no problems with XMIND and I am amazed that it is free. It by far better than Freemind and the free version of MindNode. It easily rivals ConceptMind, NovaMind, and others paid version except that it is more elegant. I strongly recommend it before pay money for application.

Aargl had trouble on 25 Feb 2014
Trying it on 10.6.8, I notice that it kinda hijack MindManager!
Yes it opens MM maps and that's great, but having both apps installed prohibits me from saving files in MindManager!
I've lost hours trying to fix permissions, erasing prefs and the like, and in the end, when I erased Xmind, all was working again!
I don't know how it does this trick, but this doesn't allow you to compare both apps, you soon have to choose which one you'll use... :-/
Otherwise, If you start from scratch, it's a real bargain compared to MindManager. ;-)

What is it with this XMind ID?

I own a copy of XMind and just want to get an update and can't get past the log-in.

Frustrated occupant of the real world trying to get into this "Members Only Enclave".

Is XMind "Restricted"?

I really like Xmind and was looking forward for further refinement in this upgrade. Unfortunately this update seems not yet ready for prime time: I tried to open a workbook created with the previous version and I'm only getting an completely empty sheet. This is an absolute show stopper for me and it seems I'll have to wait a little further.

Can you send us an email to tell us more details about your questions? Our email is support@xmind.net
All your XMind 2008 files can not be opened by XMind 3?
If not, it will be better if you can share the one which can not be opened.
Thank you in advance.

I downloaded and installed the file.
When I tried to get my free XMind ID apparently I got the "Captcha" wrong. Now I can't use the user name I chose or my email address since they "already exist"

I downloaded the PRO version, but the "About" information says it's version 3.0.0. My previous copy of XMIND says 2.3.0 Professional.

What are the differences between 2.3 and 3?
Is it just the online subscription?
Or have there been improvements based on user feedback?
I'm surprised to see the jump from 2.3 to 3.0.

This has been frustrating so far.

Paladino had trouble on 03 Dec 2007
ClamXav, my anti-virus program, found what it says is an infected file; it's the "iTextAsian.jar" file. The path to it is: /Applications/xmind.app/Contents/Resources/plugins/com.lowagie.itext_2.0.4/iTextAsian.jar.
Dunno if it's a false positive or not. If it is an infected file, it's likely a PC/Windows virus....but ya never know.
Check it out.

Dear Paladino,

This is Brian, developer of XMIND. Thank you for your review about XMIND 2008 V2.1. After checking carefully, we reply your review to clarify the situation you have met. You can see the details about it following:

Firstly, "iTextAsian.jar" is a open source font library for iText which is the most popular Java-PDF toolkit. The official download page of iTextAsian.jar is:

http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=15255

on which you can download it again. And ClamXav would also report the same information on the new downloaded one. We have scanned the file with both Norton Anti-Virus and McAfee Anti-Virus. The results are the same--no virus. Softpedia.com guarantees that XMIND 2008 Pro 2.1 is 100% CLEAN, too. See:

http://mac.softpedia.com/progClean/XMIND-Clean-24959.html

Secondly, ClamXav is a clamav-based open source anti-virus software for Mac OS X port. The reason that ClamXav notices you when you scan XMIND, is just because it can not analyze the compression file correctly. See the FAQ of ClamXav:

http://www.clamav.net/support/faq
(go to the page and look for "oversized")

And, you can change the preference to make ClamXav to do things right, the steps are:
a) Open ClamXav, Open Preference/General
b) Change "Archive max-ratio" to "631", see the screenshot in attachment.
c) Scan again. You'll find no warnings!

By the way, "Oversized.zip" is not a virus.

Thirdly, if our solution has not met your requirements, you can DELETE it! iTextAsian.jar is just used to generate Asian characters in PDF file for XMIND 2008. So users can delete this file without any other problems if there is no usage for exporting mind maps with Asian language to PDF file.

Thank You and Best Regards,
================================
