nueva versión v5.03 CmapsTools. Mapas Conceptuales software

Aquí os copy pasteo... el correito de IHMC CmapsTools sobre la nueva versión de este software de creación de mapas conceptuales... concretamente la nueva versión es la v5.03.

We have prepared a new version of IHMC CmapTools, bringing it up to
v5.03. This new version includes many improvements in terms of speed
and memory usage, in addition to new features and a large number of
bug fixes. Therefore, this update is highly recommended for all users
running IHMC CmapTools. This new version cannot be upgraded
automatically from previous versions, it must be downloaded from

Because of the large file size we recommend that you download IHMC
CmapTools v5.03 through a high speed Internet connection.

Some of the most important bug fixes and additions are:

• The Views window nows shows Cmaps and resources as thumbnails,
facilitating their identification. Through a button in the Views
window, you can decide how you want to view the cmaps and resources
stored; either as a tree structure or as thumbnails (Cmaps in
CmapServers will only shows as thumbnails if the CmapServer is updated
also. A new version of the CmapServer is also available for download).

• Both the Web Search and Concept Suggester now make use of the
"language" property of the Cmap (if the user has set it in the
properties), and will try to contextualize searches and suggestions in
such language. For example: if the language property of the Cmap is
set to Spanish, the Web Search and Concept suggestions will be
contextualized to Spanish too.

• A version is now available for 64-bit architectures under Windows
and Linux operating systems.

• The "cmap://" protocol enables clients to open Cmaps from outside of
CmapTools, launching the IHMC CmapTools software. Much like the
http:// protocol directs the client operating system to open a URL
with a Web browser, using the "cmap://" protocol at the beginning of a
URL indicates that CmapTools should be opened to view the contents of
the URL. You'll see this being used more and more as Cmaps get
integrated into Web environments.

• IHMC CmapLite v5.03 is also being released, recommended for machines
with smaller amounts of memory (e.g. 256MB notebooks) or slow
processors (e.g. older machines).

• CmapTools Help is now also available in French and Italian, in
addition to English, Spanish and Finnish. They are automatically
displayed when CmapTools runs in those languages.

A detailed list of new features and bug fixes can be found at

The number of languages has been extended to 17, and now includes
Catalan, Chinese, Czech, Dutch, English, Basque, Finnish, French,
Galician, German, Italian, Japanese, Kuna, Portuguese, Spanish,
Swedish, and Turkish. CmapTools defaults to the language of the
operating system, but can be changed in the Preferences menu item. For
detailed instructions please refer to the Help and read the entry
titled "How to Change the Language".

We hope you enjoy CmapTools v5.03, and please keep in touch regarding
your uses of the software. Do not hesitate to contact us at the
CmapForum ( The CmapForum contains
documentation, answers to the questions most commonly asked, a place
to provide suggestions, announcements, and troubleshooting sections.
