FreeplaneGTD v2.0.0 released

After a long silence I finally released a new version of the addon.

It might not show much on the outside, save the rendering of the task list window, where the previous pixelated display is gone.

More or less everything else was rewritten from scratch under the bonnet. I refactored the code base to allow for more structured programming approach. The ugly rendering of the task list has been replaced with the built-in JavaFX webkit based browser, that is not only better looking and faster, but the add-on doesn’t have to ship with a 1M bulk.

Starting this release the window several features were added to support side by side usage. The position of the task list can be saved, so if it’s closed it will open on the last screen position and use the same size. The window no longer closes when selecting a task, so it’s useful for navigation in the map. Task parsing, editing, archiving will refresh the task window straight away.

The release is available at the release page, on GitHub and on SourceForge.

If you like the addon, don’t forget to honor the work put into it by donating to the author.

FreeplaneGTD+ v1.8.1 released

An interim bugfix release was issued to the previous build.

This build fixes the issue originating from the change in preferences handling between 1.7.1 and earlier releases and the 1.8.x branch.

An about dialog is also added, and some minor tweaks were added to the task display, to show more concise results on the timeline list.

The release is available at the release page, on GitHub and on SourceForge.

Bugs are likely to occur, please report them using GitHub.

FreeplaneGTD+ v1.8.0 released

This is a major rewrite of the interface. Bugs are likely to occur, please report them using GitHub.

New features:

  • Task editor support added for labeling tasks as waiting for somebody, and waiting until a specific time for next action
  • Task list modified to use radio buttons instead of tabbed interface. This is done to save lots of memory, as well as trying to make the add-on IOS compliant
  • New hotkeys added to switch between task editor content
  • The task list shows the waiting for and wait until properties as well
  • The delegate view is modified to show both who the task is waiting for as it’s responsible
  • The timeline view is modified to show the waiting for items on the correct date
  • You can now mark items done straight from the tasklist

The about dialog is not currently finished, I’m seriously considering to skip that one altogether.

The release is available at the release page, on GitHub and on SourceForge.

Mindweb initial announment

This is the eleventh article in the attempt to form a blogging habit


This is the initial announcement of the availability of the first working version of a HTML 5 based freeplane viewer/editor.

I’ve been using Freeplane quite heavily, and it always caused a headache, that there is no way of accessing my maps from my phone or tablet. The only viewer available used Java applet, which is not even available on the desktop browsers anymore.

That’s what brought this project to life, and the roadmap is even more exciting for both Freeplane fans, and GTD practitioners.
