Xmind's co-founder Stephen Zhu has recently told me (via an email
response to a question) that Xmind is still in development with an
undisclosed (unknown) release date.
I'm fairly new to Xmind, but have put the program through its paces
over the last several weeks, attempting to organized my full plate of
projects (fairly complex business projects). My conclusion to-date is
that I'm impressed w/ Xmind's graphical style and interface and with
the ability to link to sub-maps, etc. Conceptually, Xmind is in the
top 3 mind mapping programs list for me at that level -- the level of
"I like what I see, but...". Alas, there are bugs (markers get lost
and disappear... reported for over a year), and missing features that
limit Xmind's effectiveness for *real world* business use.
But... the big missing part... where's the corresponding iPhone/
Android app that enables portability of the information? And,
where's the information and communication from the developer that this
program is *really* in development? No published roadmap. No
proactive communications from the developer. Leaves me skeptical
while the rest of the competition is zooming ahead with richer feature
sets, web browser editors, and PHONE APPS!
