XMind 8 is a mind-mapping program with a variety of available diagramming tools for flowcharts, organizational charts, timelines and more. It can be used for brain storming, illustrating or categorizing ideas, note taking, conceptualizing and more. It supports drag-and-drop of elements, export to other formats and is compatible with most other mind-mapping programs.

Some advanced functions are restricted to the pro version but can be (mostly) removed via Edit - Preferences - XMind Pro and checking "Hide Plus/Pro features".

Category:
System Requirements: WinXP / Vista / Win7 / Win8 / Win10
Writes settings to: None
Unicode support: Yes
License: EPL/LGPL
How to extract: Download the ZIP package and extract to a folder of your choice. Launch xmind.exe. When prompted, decline to install Bonjour for local network sharing.

Optionally:
  • Run Associate_XMind_File.bat to associate the program with .xmind files (this is not portable and must be run on each machine)
  • To save space, if you are sure you'll have Java installed on any machine you use, you can delete the JRE folder (thanks mc)

Selecting "Hide Plus/Pro features" does nothing, it still shows the PRO features.

Late to the Xmind party,...and yet:

Talk about BLOATED software indeed: 471MB ! fer chrissake (excuse my french)...:-(

A small point...
The download is now 'pure' Windows.
Other OS files are not present.
Perhaps mod the initial blurb

This program is critically important when you have a mass of vaguely connected topics. Seeing them all grouped nicely into a structure does a very useful magic trick, simplifying and clarifying how you think about almost any topic.

If you have Java installed on the Windows computers you usually use, then you can delete the JRE folder under XMind_Windows. With AppCompactor and deleting JRE, the size reduces to about 47 MB.

AppCompactor shrank the app by about 1/3 using conservative settings with no obvious ill effects. Still about 100MB, though - the size of a well-dressed WAMP package. That's a big byte out of a small USB stick, and unless you want the functionality, I agree with Andries' suggestion. Notwithstanding, I AM keeping it on my hard drive. Very nice.

When I have tried to download the exe-file, I have got the error message that I have no rights to download.
Why?

To save some space, try AppCompactor.
