The latest sources can be obtained from the FreeMind CVS branch
fm_060405_integration, the coming version 0.9.0 Beta 9 has already got
its tag fm_0_9_0_beta9 which still is likely to be lightly moved. We do
not use any other infrastructure for our collaboration, but I am already
working on a refactoring of all FreeMind views resulting in significant
interface changes which is not likely to come before the 0.9.0 is released.

Download the latest code, compile it and so you can see what bugs are
still relevant. I think that the most relevant issues have already been
I think that you do not have to concentrate on fixing the bugs as all
persons that have produced them and could make the fixes are still in
the project. I think you could help us to do QA finding the still
unknown bugs by testing the product. You could also start implementing
of some new features. Tell us what features you are going to implement
so that we can easily merge your and our coming changes. You could also
announce what you are going to change in the open discussion forum, if
you are interested in the early community feedback.
