Today we released the 4th release candidate version of Docear. With all the changes introduced into Docear with RC3, there were still some bugs to fix which could cause some distortion in the workspace tree or even prevented users with Chinese language settings from seeing Docear’s ribbon. RC4 is something like the final touch to our previous version and we really want to keep it save. So, if you want to help us, please download this version of Docear and report any bugs or issues you can find here.

By the way, have you ever wondered if there was an easy way to get rid of all the information you don’t need when you are drafting your papers or organizing your literature in Docear’s mind maps?

You can easily maximize your mind map view by pressing the <TAB> key on your keyboard:

We are currently working on a manual and some additional tutorial videos to make working with Docear a piece of cake for everyone out there.  🙂

If you are interested in what we are currently working on, or if you want to view our source code, please have a look at our GitHub repository.
