Okay, so today is Mindjet is releasing an incredible update to what is already a great product! Mindjet Mindmanager 8.0 comes out today and is absolutely packed with great features!!
I can tell you personally that after being involved in the beta test that this is one hell of an upgrade. Some of the new features that are being introduced today will blow you away. Take a look at some of them highlighted below. And if you wanted to get your hands on a trial, check it out! You won’t be disappointed!
So what they have done is gotten rid of the old Map Viewer! So now I don’t have to get my colleagues that haven’t yet got MindManager installed to download a separate file. Now I just send them the PDF and it is fully functioning and interactive.
Not only can you send your friends and colleagues a PDF file, but you can also embed a Flash file directly into your project and have it be fully interactive as well! Click here and check out a pdf
Keep in mind that both PDF and SWF files are interactive, and read only! Great way to share your maps with everyone!
There are so many great new features that I really can’t decide what I like the best!!! Here is another great new feature.
Web Search and Services Support to add web branches! What this means, is you can grab the google Map Part throw it in your map, type your search criteria and the number of results that you want to return. It will then return branches with the results and links attached. This is absolutely huge for people who do a lot of research! Over the weekend, I was prepping for a presentation on SEO/SEM and I decided to utilize this feature to grab links about Landing Page Optimization, Google Analytics and some other items that I needed to research. This was a great time saver!
Dynamic Web Services is supported for the following services:
The 3rd key feature for me (and any other self respecting project manager) has finally come!
