XMind just announced the release of the latest version of his famous Mind Mapping software XMind 2012. We had to wait about 20 months since the launching of XMind 3.2.1 before seeing a new version. This latest version is more business and productivity oriented. XMind launched also a new website and a new pricing policy. The life-time plans appears with XMind plus and XMind PRO.

I strongly disagree that the Free version of XMind is "fully functional." Since there is no way to print or share with anyone else, unless you buy the premium version to turn things into PDFs. This makes it's uses VERY limited.
I really like what i've produced on my first try with it, but now I have to pay bucks to do anything else with it.

With a free version of XMind you can export your map as a picture or text and you can also print it.
