You have been directed to this page because there is a more recent version of MindReader available than you are using. You should go to the Setup page and run the updated setup.exe program to update your installation. A revision history is included below so you know what has changed in this portion of the program. You may also want to review the Mark Task Complete Updates and Next Action Analysis Updates page as well to see what updates will be installed for those programs. These programs share a common set of routines that are tracked by AO-common updates.


MindReader Revision History

The information below refers to the "Beta" version of the download. The "stable" version is the last version that has not changed in a week or two. It could be more buggy than "Beta" but provides a fall-back in case the beta has issues that can't be addressed quickly.

  • 20100120 -- Add option to not automatically save maps after mindreader processing (in config map).
  • 20100117 -- New version of nm tag that optionally prompts for you to enter a destination keyword for new map's intray. Mindreader automatically handles 64bit upgrades and allows dual use of configuration map on synchronized systems.

  • 20090405 -- Added "ola" tag to create linked outlook appointments from mindmanager topics
  • 20090403 -- Fix bug preventing resources from being identified in 2nd set of brackets
  • 20090315 -- Add language setting so future upgrades can identify which language in use
  • 20090312 -- Revise category keywords to avoid overlap with due date keywords
  • 20090305 -- Enable Outlinker to attach an email message as an attachment.

  • 20090222 -- fix bug in rmMe being set to %me instead of %me" in configuration map (code will update existing users). Impact "i owe" functionality from OutLinker
  • 20090217 -- Bug found in speed improvements - ignoring some keywords -- download recommended.
  • 20090216 -- Speed improvements fully implemented. Download recommended
  • 20090215 -- Very significant speed improvements. Upgraded recommended. Additional dashboard m tag bug fixes
  • 20090213 -- Allow full use of m tag from dashboards (changes sent directly to underlying topics) -- update gyroq.ini also
  • 20090129 -- make sure options are 0 or 1 and prompt otherwise
