The latest stable release of FreeMind is 1.0.0. Downloading and installation instructions are given below.


Installing FreeMind

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.
