The latest stable release of FreeMind is 0.9.0. Downloading and installation instructions are given below.
FreeMind is written in Java, so it will run on almost any system with a Java runtime environment.
In order to make things easier for you, we've prepared installers for the most common desktop environments: Windows, Linux and Macintosh OS X. You may choose a minimum install that gives you only the basic FreeMind package or a maximum install, which includes plugins for Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG), Portable Document Format (PDF), reminders and help files.
|Java Runtime Environment 1.4 or later. You can find a FreeMind installer including java here or download Sun's Java from here.|
- About 13 MB of Hard Disk space for the full version, including all the plug-ins.
- At least 512 MB of Memory. More memory is better, especially if you will be creating large mind maps.
- Install Java Runtime Environment if you do not have it.
- Choose a FreeMind installation file by operating system.
- Download the chosen installation file.
- Install FreeMind.
