On February 19th 2004, FreeMind reached historical rank 9 at SourceForge. This is not such a big surprise as new version has been released recently. Furthermore, the download rates have been keeping at slightly under 400 per day even before the new version has been released.

On October 13th, FreeMind reached historical rank 12, with approx. 700 downloads and 2500 page views. It will be probably difficult to outperform this rank in the near future.

FreeMind reached historical rank 48 among SourceForge apps

Recently, FreeMind has reached historical rank 48 among Source Forge applications. That means that FreeMind appeared among 50 most active Source Forge projects, where the activity is measured by the number of downloads. It may have been caused by the fact that a new version has been released, so the number is not completely representative.
