this is another tiny patch to FreeMind (0.9.0_Beta15) providing a new property to switch off the root node borders. See https://sourceforge.net/forum/forum.php?thread_id=1930544&forum_id=22101
for a short discussion.
The new property is called "draw_root_node_border" and takes a boolean value which determines whether the border should be drawn or not. See the screenshots for a first impression.
NOTE To introduce the new property you will have to edit the freemind.properties contained in the source (or jar archive) or the auto.properties. See the README for additional information.
It just disables the borders, the elliptic layout of the root node is left untouched to make the patch not to intrusive.
