Incubator 2.4 for Leopard
Austin-based Mindcad today unveiled Incubator 2.4, an update to its outlining and brainstorming program designed for visual thinkers. The new version brings with it Leopard compatibility, and the ability to import and export FreeMind maps. In addition to supporting the new XML-based format, users can also upload or download shared maps from MindMeister. Incubator is available in English, German, and French languages, and sells for $50 from Mindcad's website.
Incubator allows users to construct maps with collapsible branches, as well as examine the underlying data. Annotation widths are directly adjustable, while a comprehensive inspector panel shows in-depth document information. Incubator supports drag-and-drop importing for URLs, documents, and vCards.
