properties_folder is appended to the user's home directory, so Library/Application Support ... (not /Library...) is user-specific.
Of course, one can change it in the if building from source, but not in the binary distrib, since this file is packaged in the freemind jar.

The directory I suggest is the standard Mac directory; you already do specific Mac processing on in the post_macos action; I think you could easily add this.

Sorry, I did not see the macos targets for building the source distrib : great, it works quite well.

Maybe someone could clean this up to read the 'properties_folder' property ?

Thanks for the great tool. How about integrating with iCal on the Mac ? ...
