I've started work on a free mind-mapping module for the NetBeans Platform (with graph.netbeans.org). Not planning anything fancy, just a well done NetBeans Platform-based application with help, autoupdate, etc.
I expect the feature list to be close to the features of FreeMind or other open-source tools.
What I do want is import from these other free formats in order to have a simple migration guide for the existing users.
I also planned some tutorials / podcasts as I come along but I think I'm overly optimist so I'll be happy if I just manage to finish the first version untill me self-declared deadline of 4th September 2006.

MindMapping with the NetBeans Platform

You've dropped the project, haven't you?
Do you know how I can programmatically generate a Mind Map from my NB Platfrom appplication?
Yes, 4 years ago.
Back then I wanted to write a Mind Mapping app using the Platform and graph.netbeans.org (later renamed to Visual Library).
Around the same time though somebody also started a mind mapping Platform-based application and I didn't feel like I had enough time to work on my app and compete with a similar app. So I just quit working on it.
Of course, neither the other app was finished so today there probably isn't any Mind Mapping code for the NetBeans Platform.
I saw in netbeans.org a screenshot of your work-in-progress. I wonder if it could still be used as a nbm module for programmatically generate simple mind maps?
now there is mind map support in NetBeans through NB MindMap plugin http://plugins.netbeans.org/plugin/60188/nb-mindmap-editor
Yes, I've read an article about this module. It seems quite nicely done. Congrats Igor!
