    LARKSPUR, Calif., Nov. 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Mindjet, the leading provider of
 software for visualizing and managing information, today launched MindManager
 X5 Pro Release 5.2, the latest version of its award-winning visual tool for
 mapping, brainstorming, planning, and organizing projects and information. IT

 because it helps their business professionals and workgroups plan, organize,
 and manage multiple projects, processes, and information-based activities."

 Terminal Services or Citrix MetaFrame Presentation Server 3.0 environments to
 run MindManager from a server. It provides an editable Windows Installer (MSI)
 file for companies that prefer push deployment to the desktop. With the
 release, users will also experience approximately 20 percent shorter set-up
 time and faster response times.

 integration with Microsoft Word:
     -- Table of contents, headers and footers can be included in the export to
        Word to create more polished final documents
