QuickUML 2.0 released
Excel Software today began shipping for Mac OS X, Linux, and Microsoft Windows. The UML tool provides a tabbed window for integration and synchronization to an entire project through use cases, class models, object models, dictionary, and code. Each use case is designed to capture the essence of a user-visible function that the system must perform, and class models show package and class objects in the system, as well as various kinds of static relationships. Sequence diagrams illustrate how instantiated objects interact and emphasize the order in which things occur, while a design project is saved as a platform independent XML file. QuickUML 2.0 is available for $300 (system requirements were unavailable).
