Labyrinth 0.4
Posted on: 04/02/2008 02:04 PM

Labyrinth 0.4 has been released

After a long wait, the next version of labyrinth is now available.

Labyrinth is a mind-mapping tool for the GNOME desktop (and beyond!). This version can be found at
ftp://ftp.gnome.org/pub/gnome/sources/labyrinth/
(once the mirrors catch up)

The release consists currently of the source tarball. I'll leave packaging up to others. I will be working to make the Windows version usable again soon. Sorry for the delay.

This release is due entirely to the two new maintainers: Martin Schaff and Matthias Vogelgesang, who's awesome work has resulted in enormous changes and many bug fixes.
