27.09.18. MindManager 2019 adds Tag View and Icon View

The new version of MindManager 2019 has arrived.

The new Tag view gives you a clear picture of a project’s overall progress towards completion, and where each individual task is in the process, so you can make the right changes to keep things on track and on time.
