Beta 15 of SciPlore MindMapping is out. The major new feature is the literature recommendation module. Based on your mind maps SciPlore MindMapping provides you with literature recommendations that can be downloaded immediately and for free. For this feature we use our upcoming new service Mr. DLib which has several millions of articles indexed from the Web. I have to admit, recommendations are not really good right now because we use a very simple algorithm. However, recommendations will become much better in near future, promised :-).

And there are more enhancements. The monitoring directory works with relative paths, BibTeX files from Mendeley with multiple links can be read, and several bug fixes were made. Here is the complete list:

  • New: Literature recommendations with free full-text link in incoming window
  • New: Automatic Web Service check (message if an old version is used)
  • New: Logging of recommendations, usage data, and incoming window status
  • New: “Import Annotations from PDFs” is now valid globally (not only for drag and drop but, e.g. for monitoring directory)
  • New: Monitoring node works with relative path, too
  • New: Overview mind map on first start
  • Improved: Identification of comments in PDF files improved
  • Improved: Behaviour of icons in incoming window
  • Improved: BibTeX files from Mendeley with multiple files can now be read
  • Fixed: Cancelling monitoring update did not work on all computers (continued in background)
  • Fixed: Renaming imported bookmarks did not work before saving a mind map
  • Fixed: Licence was not shown when selected in menu
  • Fixed: Ref key sometimes wasn`t assigned to imported comments (bookmarks worked)

Let us know what you think of the new version and make a comment here in the Blog.
