Please Put MindJet for Mac 9.6+ in the App Store.

Mountain Lion's new security level: Allow applications downloaded from 'Mac App Store' only, Mac Users are not actually able to apply your updates any longer without downloading them from the App Store.

I appear to be locked down at version 9.5.416 missing updates starting from 9.6.

Jeffrey, I believe you're experiencing something different. Our application is working with Gatekeeper to ensure security for apps that aren't downloaded from the App store. That being said, can you submit a ticket to our support team? They will then be able to work with you on finding a resolution. You can reach our team by following this link:

Thank you!

I had no problem installing under Mountain Lion. Non-AppStore downloads require you to use your discretion by doing the following

go to System Preferences --> Security and Privacy

Click on the Lock to make changes

Allow applications downloaded from:
to Anywhere

Like I said, you will have to use your discretion as Apple isn't going to vet your downloads for you, but it works.

And, as a frequent critic of Mindjet for Mac, I am glad to have something good to say.

Sorry but I refuse to lower the shields (security level) from "Mac App Store Only".

The program requirement is to run at new Apple highest level of security which means the program has to be put into the App Store to be downloaded and run directly from the App Store.

I had this issue with my photo editing software the other day. I found that you don't have to go and change your System Preferences at all. Solution:
Control-click (or right-click) on the icon of the app you’re attempting to run, and choose Open from the contextual menu that appears. You’ll see a variant of the warning dialog box; this one adds an option to go ahead and launch the app despite Gatekeeper’s grave concerns. Once you’ve done that, you can launch the app normally from then on.
Basically you're telling Moutain Lion that this one particular signature is ok. So you can keep your "shields up" and just override them one by one. More info here:
