Fork us on GitHub! (NEW)
Migrated from Google Code, the official XMind open source project is now on GitHub. This repository contains all recently released versions of XMind source code. Forks and pull requests are highly welcomed, as well as issue reports and wiki contributions!
Also, XMind SDK for Python has been released on GitHub since 2013. This SDK is 100% written in Python. Non-Java developers may find this tool useful when parsing, modifying and generating XMind files.
2009 SourceForge Community Choice Awards

SourceForge's media and e-commerce web sites connect millions of influential technology professionals and enthusiasts each day. Combining user-developed content and e-commerce, SourceForge is the global technology community's nexus for information exchange, goods for geeks, and open source software distribution and services.
2008 Eclipse Community Award
XMind 2008 was named "Best Commercial Eclipse Rich Client Platform (RCP) Application" as part of the prestigious Eclipse Community Awards at EclipseCon 2008.
Eclipse is an open source community whose projects are focused on providing an extensible development platform and application frameworks for building software. Eclipse provides extensible tools and frameworks that span the software development lifecycle, including support for modeling, language development environments for Java, C/C++ and others, testing and performance, business intelligence, rich client applications and embedded development. A large, vibrant ecosystem of major technology vendors, innovative start-ups, universities and research institutions and individuals extend, complement and support the Eclipse Platform.
The Eclipse Foundation is a not-for-profit, member-supported corporation that hosts the Eclipse projects. Full details of Eclipse and the Eclipse Foundation are available at http://www.eclipse.org/.
Why Open Source
We want to make XMind's code available for Eclipse-based projects and Eclipse plug-in developers to incorporate visual brainstorming and mind mapping capabilities in their applications, or just to export their data to an XMind mind map file. We also welcome the development of plug-ins for XMind itself, and we provide extension points for developers to facilitate the development process. Overall we believe many synergies will evolve from the use of XMind by third party developers.
