Dear Dan,

recently, I've published 0.9.0 RC7 with many bug fixes to the IMHO most nasty bugs.
I commented the fixes below.

Perhaps, you may find some time to verify this,

thanks, Chris

Hi Chris

it is good to see a solid version of FreeMind 0.9.0, the version RC6.
Many errors reported for the previous RCs have been fixed.
Congratulations!

There are nevertheless some issues open to which I would like to draw
your attention. The issues that I have reported and are open are still
available in the trackers:

* http://freemind.sourceforge.net/wiki/index.php/Finishing_0.9.0
** http://sourceforge.net/tracker/?group_id=7118&atid=107118&status=1&submitter=danielpolansky&submit=Filter
** http://sourceforge.net/tracker/?group_id=7118&atid=1006953&status=1&submit=Filter

I understand that you consider some of these issues to be of low
priority, so I will pick those that I think are important and explain
a bit why I think they are important.


SELECTED BUGS
=============

Selected bugs, in the order of estimated priority:

1. Feedback on conversion
http://sourceforge.net/tracker/?func=detail&aid=1820886&group_id=7118&atid=1006953
This is the single most important outstanding issue. Users updating to
the version 0.9.0 are not notified that their maps have been converted
to a format that the version 0.8.0 cannot read. Either a warning
should be implemented, one that appears per default, or an additional
function should be added to FreeMind 0.9.0 that saves a mind map in
the file format of 0.8.0; this could be one of the export functions.
If such an export function were there, it would be no longer that
critical that FreeMind does not warn about converting a mind map to an
incompatible file format.

Done.
2. Zoom: no zooming effect on node editors
http://sourceforge.net/tracker/?func=detail&aid=2800933&group_id=7118&atid=107118
Zooming set for the mind map does not apply to the rich text node
editor; the bug has been fixed in part, in that zooming at least
applies correctly to plain text long node editor. On one hand, this
does not cause a data loss, so is not of the absolutely utmost
urgency. But it is a conspicuous usability error, one that makes the
zoom fuction only half-usable in combination with rich text editing.
Some of the users of the zoom function use it because small letters
are tiring to their eyes; this can be especially true on some notebook
displays with high PPI (pixel per inch). The bug is quite easy to fix;
I do not have this bug in my personal version of FreeMind.

Later, as I tried once to do it, but failed in the same way you suggested.
3. Long node editor not below node
http://sourceforge.net/tracker/?func=detail&aid=2540600&group_id=7118&atid=107118
Long node editor is still sometimes opened above the node instead of
below it. I have added to the bug a scenario that should make it
easier to reproduce the bug. This is not a showstopper or a crash; it
is an annoyance. How severe this annoyance is I am not sure. It is in
any case an unneeded deviation from the behavior of FreeMind 0.8.0 and
0.7.1, one that should not therefore be too difficult to fix.

Later.
4. Option for plain text in notes
http://sourceforge.net/tracker/?func=detail&aid=1884362&group_id=7118&atid=1006953
I do not really hope that you will implement an option for having
plain text notes, but I am mentioning this anyway. This is a
regression against FreeMind 0.8.0, one whose fixing has been requested
by various people as documented in the tracker.

Not this version.
5. Hyperlinks - opening not working in long nodes - 0.9.0 RC6
http://sourceforge.net/tracker/?func=detail&aid=2908233&group_id=7118&atid=107118
This is a minor issue, but it seems very easy to fix, and worth it. It
suffices to add the handler for opening of hyperlinks that is added to
rich text notes also to rich text nodes.

Fixed.
There are more open issues that I have left out from this list,
agreeing that they are likely either not all that important or too
hard to fix and can be fixed after 0.9.0.


PASSED TESTS
============

I have tested the opening or following of various hyperlinks on my
Vista machine, without having found any errors. I have not tested the
network "//..." hyperlinks, though. There is a bug report in the bug
tracker for the network hyperlinks in which you say that problems with
their opening are fixed in Java 1.6.0. I assume that to be the case,
otherwise the users of FreeMind 0.9.0 RC series would have likely
complained.

There were three data format errors that I have checked to no longer
appear in FreeMind 0.9.0 RC6:
* http://sourceforge.net/tracker/?func=detail&aid=2844139&group_id=7118&atid=107118
* http://sourceforge.net/tracker/?func=detail&aid=2797009&group_id=7118&atid=107118
* http://sourceforge.net/tracker/?func=detail&aid=2705587&group_id=7118&atid=107118

I have done no performance testing.

I have done no further creative testing other than verifying whether
the issues and bugs that I have already reported have been fixed.

I have tried hard to consider what is important and what is secondary,
and selected the bugs to report here accordingly.

Best regards,

Dan

All right, here comes another bug worth fixing:

6. Switching between maps marks them as modified
https://sourceforge.net/tracker/index.php?func=detail&aid=2852882&group_id=7118&atid=107118
This is not a showstopper, but it makes the function that marks mind
maps with "*" unusable, as switching between several opened mind maps
is a very common and repeatedly done operation, and this operation
leads to a false marking with "*".

Fixed.

There is another error that seems worth fixing:

7. Crypted root's childnodes order error
http://sourceforge.net/tracker/index.php?func=detail&aid=2912427&group_id=7118&atid=107118

The bug report was not created by me, but I have posted to the bug
report a detailed procedure on how to reproduce the bug, and I have,
of course, reproduced the bug myself. The bug does not lead to a data
loss but is rather annoying for the users of the encryption function:
the encryption function does not keep the order of the children of the
encrypted node. The bug is a regression bug, not present in FreeMind
0.8.1, but present in FreeMind 0.9.0 RC1 and later.

Later.

Be it as it may, there is another bug that seems worth fixing.

8. Node navigation using the arrow keys does not work
http://sourceforge.net/tracker/index.php?func=detail&aid=2918427&group_id=7118&atid=107118
The node navigation using arrow keys is broken after the user presses
escape while editing a new node. This is not a showstopper; there is
an easy workaround; it cannot lead data loss. However, it is a
regression against 0.9.0 RC4, newly appearing in 0.9.0 RC6.

Fixed.

One more bug worth fixing:

9. Errors after exporting a branch as a new map
http://sourceforge.net/tracker/index.php?func=detail&aid=2932322&group_id=7118&atid=107118
The error that I can reproduce actually consists in (a) the cursor
disappearing after an export to PNG; (b) the cursor disappearing after
an export to JPEG.

Fixed.

Another error worth fixing, not reported and discovered by me, but
confirmed by me:

10. RC4 regression: incorrect viewing of UTF-8 map
http://sourceforge.net/tracker/?func=detail&atid=107118&aid=2810535&group_id=7118
The error is still there in RC6. An UTF-8 encoded mind map, attached
to the bug report, is shown in weird characteres in RC4 and RC6, but
not in RC3.

Can't be reproduced under Linux. I'll will check under Windows later.

I have discovered another bug in RC6:

11. Wrong node selection after moving node left - 0.9.0 RC6
http://sourceforge.net/tracker/?func=detail&aid=2953495&group_id=7118&atid=107118
After I move node left by pressing control + left, it is not selected and its parent is selected instead.

Fixed.
