This is it, the official release - it's up now! There several minor fixes and changes. Most significant is that this version does not expire since it's not beta anymore.

Don't worry, we'll continue to release new versions in beta format in the near future with more features. Also, upgrades to 4.x will be free for registered users of 4.0 FYI.

Thanks again to everyone on this discussion board and those of you who wrote in to support from all of us here at TheBrain. Your contributions made a huge difference.

I have the same issue. It seems to be when a .png is attached to a thought type, it no longer displays on the thoughts assigned to that type. However, if the thought type is assigned an icon through copy-paste, it works correctly.

Dear Harlan,

For all it's worth as one of the privileged early 2001 adopters of the Brain and beta testers I do want to join the chorus of congratulations on the release of PB4.

I do not however want to let this opportunity go by without publicly commending you and all at TheBrain for your courage to let users develop what you conceived; for the gentle way in that you allowed us to communicate what we need; and it's an honour to contribute to the fine PB4 user forum (thanks to them too as I learned so much from you all), for the untiring instant help and support if one had problems be that of comprehension or of a technical nature. The PB4 Brain implementation is amazing, your engineering team is and has done a superb job, the products are great value for money based on return in efficiency, productivity and opportunity to be creative.

Lastly I also wish to  congratulate TheBrain Corporation since it was ultimately them who gave the all clear to bring TheBrain into the 21st century, and for the humanity to keep TheBrain in house.

Eugen Hockenjos

PS: But please do not yet quite depart on vocation as there's still the partial export functionality  to do for the for 4.1 beta as part of a corporate ethos which requires that "we will continue to develop TheBrain aggressively"......

Thanks for all the positive comments. It really has been my pleasure conversing with you all. We're very excited about this release and hope that you will all continue to participate in the ongoing development of PB.

I created a new thread to discuss the PNG icon problem, which I have not been able to reproduce... please see http://forums.thebrain.com/tool/post/thebrain/vpost?id=2026111&pid=19162232#post19162232
