         Subject: Dialogue Mapping in Rationale

Austhink has recently released a new update (1.4) to Rationale, its
argument mapping software.

A major difference between this and previous versions is that it can
incorporate images into maps.

With images, Rationale can be useful deployed to support a range of
activities beyond its core activities of hierarchical grouping, basic
reasoning, and advanced ("analytic") reasoning.

So for example it now has a set of templates supporting "Dialogue
Mapping". This activity, based on a methodology known as IBIS, is a
more free-form sort of inquiry into a issue, especially so-called
"wicked" problems.

For more information about dialogue mapping, see the Cognexus website

Rationale can be downloaded from <http://ww.austhink.com>
