CmapTools has been updated to v3.8. The release was accompanied by a story from the Associated Press that appeared in The Boston Globe. CmapTools is a freely available, open source mind-mapping tool developed at the Florida-based Institute for Human and Machine Cognition (IHMC) with funding provided by NASA and the Department of Defense.
From the description of CmapTools at IHMC’s website:
The CmapTools program empowers users to construct, navigate, share and criticize knowledge models represented as concept maps. It allows users to, among many other features, construct their Cmaps in their personal computer, share them on servers (CmapServers) anywhere on the Internet, link their Cmaps to other Cmaps on servers, automatically create web pages of their concept maps on servers, edit their maps synchronously (at the same time) with other users on the Internet, and search the web for information relevant to a concept map.
