Dear Dan,

I suggest to explain, why we request reactions from the users. The following changes reveal our background:

Dear FreeMind users,

we are discussing to switch to a new logotype graphics in the coming release, from the existing butterfly design to a new one featuring light bulb on a turquoise background. As there are different opinions about the new logotype in our team, we would like to know your opinion on the new design. Please let us know whether you like the light bulb or whether you want to keep the butterfly. To let us know, please write to the following forum thread:
...
To try out the new design for yourself, please download FreeMind 0.9.0 beta9 from ...
To see both designs in comparison, see the wikipage ...

The beta release contains the following other features:

Best regards, Chris
