- Clouds (to group nodes), custom connections (duplicate connection but with another label)
- Export/Import in common formats
- Node Details (collapsible, popup on mouse hover), Attributes, Notes
- Diagram auto layout, nodes alignment (i.e vertically by leftmost edge)

Can you may be recall any *concept* mapping software similar to Freeplane?
Unfortunately, no.
