Hi Dan,

I tried it again. Perhaps it is better:


In fact, I generated the max version the same way, so it should work...
Please, tell me, if the copyright is now ok.

Dear Chris,

thanks a lot. I have now tested the adjusted versions.

I hate to say this, but the "(c)" sequence is a poor replacement for the original copyright mark. The U.S. copyright law does not acknowledge the "(c)" sequence.

I understand that you have chosen this quick fix because of the limitation of Wine, which you are using to emulate Windows environment in Linux. Is there a possibility that Dimitry could produce the correct versions, with the proper copyright mark, given he is on Windows? Or could I perhaps do it?

Does it suffice that I check out certain version of FreeMind from CVS and then compile it using Eclipse, choosing a proper target? I would do it if you shortly advise me on how to do it.

When you are going to change the copyright mark, could you please also change the date of the copyright, which I have overlooked before? The correct year range is 2000-2008 instead of just 2008; different parts of the product are copyrighted in different years.

I am willing to do all that myself, if you shortly point me out the way.

Interestingly, in the Windows max installer for 0.8.1 that you have produced, the copyright mark was all right; only the min installer had it broken. Is this perhaps because you have produced the maximum version of installer on Windows instead of using Wine? Anyway.

Best regards,

Dear Dan,

done. Can anybody check the new windows installers, please.
(By the way, I replaced the (C) sign by the (c) sequence, as my wine seems to process them wrong. This should be ok, or?)

Dear Christian,

I have just started to install FreeMind 0.8.1 on Windows and found the following three non-technical issues, pertaining probably both to the max Windows installer and the min Windows installer.


The installer screen reads, at the top left corner, "FreeMind", and at the bottom right corner, "Copyright (C) 2008 Christian Foltin, Dimitry Polivaev and others."

Why are not all the major contributors of code not mentioned? These are AFAIK:
  • Jörg Müller
  • Daniel Polansky
  • Petr Novak
  • Christian Foltin
  • Dimitry Polivaev
as documented on the home page of FreeMind.


At the bottom right corner, there is actually not the proper copyright mark but a mesh of three characters. This is not so with the installer for 0.7.1 and 0.8.0.


The installer reads:

The current project director: Daniel Polansky, the current project managers: Christian Foltin and Dimitry Polivaev.

But Dimitry Polivaev is not a project manager. Please, kindly remove Dimitry Polivaev.

Also, please avoid the German-styled ":" and use the complete sentences like the following.

"The current project director is Daniel Polansky, while the current project manager is Christian Foltin".


There are no technical issues with the installers.

Thank you for correcting these issues in both the minimal and maximal installers for Windows.

Best regards,
