There is a new version of Docear available for download. It’s basically the (experimental) RC1 version done right. RC2 fixes a lot of bugs that were caused by the new workspace model with multiple projects, it features a refined and polished version of the Ribbon, fixes a lot of bugs in general and supports the standard PDF viewers of MacOSX (Preview and Skim) and probably a lot of other viewers as well!
If you are still using Beta9 of Docear, a lot of things will change and improve with this new version of Docear. However converting your old maps to this new format is a one-way process (you can’t use these files with Beta9 of Docear anymore) and the process itself might take some time, depending on the size of your mind maps. Please backup your files before upgrading to Docear RC2.
If you have used RC1 of Docear and created multiple projects, you probably have experienced some bugs which cannot automatically be fixed by RC2. If you e.g. have trouble with your Incoming mind map ignoring your other library mind maps, and don’t have any backups you can use, please write us in our bug tracking forum, and we will try to help you as soon as possible.
Further information about the many fixes, enhancements and new features will follow tomorrow and on Wednesday, when the Docear team is back from a sailing trip with our entire working group :-). For more information about the new GUI (including ribbons) and other major changes compares to Beta 9 read this post about RC1.
