A Review of the MindManager 9 Release

This afternoon I was one of the Mindjet Partners listening to Michael Deutch give his briefing on the forthcoming release of MindManager 9 via a webinar.  As is my habit I mapped it in MindManager as he gave it.  Some of the detail is missing but the support material from Mindjet will cover that. Links at the bottom of the page.

My experience with the beta has been good.  I like the new ribbon, the reduced CPU time consumed, the SharePoint addin and I have just found those new images!  I still have many other improvements to give a real workout to: slide mode, Gantt chart pane and planning the day in tasks with durations in minutes 🙂 .

It’s a great product which I hope will bring many new users on board and provide that extra oomph to the users of earlier versions.   As someone who has used MindManager almost daily since 1996 I am looking forward to getting the release version, personalising it for my applications, listening and contributing to the MindManager community, and (fingers crossed) assisting my existing and future clients to exploit MindManager.
