The Mnemosyne software resembles a traditional flash card program to help you memorize question/answer pairs, but with an important twist: it uses a sophisticated algorithm to schedule the best time for a card to come up for review. Difficult cards that you tend to forget quickly will be scheduled more often, while Mnemosyne won't waste your time on things you remember well.

Release Notes: This release adds many bugfixes.
Release Notes: This release adds a menu option to detect duplicates in the database. It makes the cramming scheduler more configurable. Cards can now be studied in random order, earliest first, latest first, or most lapses first. You have the option of whether to save the scheduler state or not when exiting the program. The way the tag field is pre-filled for new cards is changed. By default, the last used tag is used, regardless of card type. If you want the pre-2.2 behavior, where the last used tag is remembered per card type, there is a bundled plugin you can activate.
Release Notes: This release implemented a new import/export format for sharing cards, which also bundles the media files. Importing an updated version of the same exported cards is supported, so that authors can release updated versions of their cards fixing e.g. spelling mistakes. Text export with tab-separated values was added. You can now specify more than one tag to add during import. In 'edit cards', a warning is no longer displayed about discarding changes if you did not make any. Many bugs were fixed.
Release Notes: This release fixes an occasional hang during review. In cloze card types, you can now provide hints, e.g. [cloze:hint] will show [hint] in the question as opposed to [...]. It adds a Sentence card type plugin. It fixes a bug where the wrong clone would be renamed. It fixes an issue in Activate cards where a set without a name and a saved set would interfere. The dialog where you name saved sets is now a combo box. Before merging cards, more information is presented on the data that is already in the database. The Web server now supports the -d option to specify the data directory. Many more fixes.
Release Notes: The program was completely rewritten.
