NovaMind 5 announced
A new version of NovaMind's self-titled software has been announced. NovaMind 5 should begin shipping in September or October, and both the Mac and Windows versions have been redesigned. The software includes multiple new topic shapes, and "FlexiLine," a feature that allows the creation of custom shapes and linking lines, helping to polish the look of mind maps. The themes and styles system has meanwhile been redesigned, making it possible to generate over 100 theme variations.
NovaMind 4 is currently available from the company's website, and guarantees a free upgrade to version 5. Several editions are available: NovaMind Express is selling for $50, while NovaMind Pro can be purchased for $150. NovaMind Platinum, the most extensive, can be bought for $250.
