After many late nights coding XAML by hand my WPF side-project has finally shipped! It's a free mind mapping tool written in Windows Presentation Foundation and deployed via ClickOnce. You can check it out here http://thoughtex.net . The main goal of the app was to create something useful that almost anyone could be comfortable with. Since this is 2007 and beta is the new black it _IS_ a beta release. Also some fairly obvious features like undo, redo, printing and re-parenting nodes have not been included for this release, but I'll release updates that will include these features as they are ready. Please send all manner of feedback to firstname.lastname@example.org . I've also created an RSS feed for the project at http://thoughtex.net/Blog/rss.ashx which I will update to keep people abreast of new features, and hopefully solicit some ideas from users.
Many thanks go out to my lovely wife Jen, and my alpha testers Dominic, Patrick, Dan (he's not dead, just really really busy) Adrian, Paul, Glav, Jeff, Joel, Tristan et.al. You all gave me lots of great feedback which sadly I haven't been able to code up yet, but (as we like to say in the consulting business) “I've taken it onboard”. I'm really happy to have this release done so I can focus on learnwpf.com and general ranting on this blog.
