Development

From FreeMind

Jump to: navigation, search

The development of FreeMind is coordinated using FreeMind's project page at SourceForge, and also using this wiki. At wiki, we have requests for enhancements page; there is also requests for enhancements (RFEs) page at SourceForge (not preferred). You can browse our new GIT repository.

We also use SourceForge for bugs, and open discussion forum. We do not use the documentation part there as we use this wiki instead.

Organization of FreeMind development

Initially, every active developer of the core team works on his own GIT branch. Our intermediate results are published as our "alpha versions". We use forum Open Discussion to communicate them.

Further details about the FreeMind release process are described on the FreeMind Release process page.

Experimental versions

Currently, there are no experimental versions available. The latest release candidate can be downloaded from Files section.

Obtaining focus for selected node in reliable manner

Requesting focus for NodeView using requestFocus() method is unreliable. A reliable way of doing that has been implemented in the method obtainFocusForSelected() of Controller. A typical call in ControllerAdaper.java is

 getController().obtainFocusForSelected();

Requesting focus using

 newSelected.requestFocus();

where newSelected is a NodeView is unreliable, though most often works.
