    WindowShade X: the OS 9 window-collapsing utility for OS X has been updated.

      • New behavior to do nothing (ignore action).
      • Substantial code cleanups and optimizations.
      • New small icon for the Preference Panel.
      • Fixed a bug with incorrect behavior with some Cocoa applications while minimizing

      Diagram tool for OS X released : OmniGraffle 1.1.1

        OmniGraffle is an OSX software that helps you draw diagrams, family trees, flow charts, org charts, layouts, and (mathematically speaking) any other directed or non-directed graphs. OmniGraffle features er the following :
        • An easy-to-use interface that takes full advantage of direct manipulation and is completely Aqua compliant.
        • Select between 29 kinds of shapes.
        • Color your shapes and lines with partially transparent ink.
        • Export to PNG, PDF, TIFF, JPEG, and GIF format for easy cross-platform and web compatibility.
        • Lines drawn between shapes or other lines "stick" to their origins and destinations, and automatically move when their origin or destination is moved.
        • Up to three text labels can be attached to a line.
        • Two styles of graph layout to automatically make your graphs easier to understand and more appealing.
        • Hierarchical layout is great for org charts and family trees.
        • "Force-directed" layout does a great job on charts that aren't simple trees, and will even animate as it is moving your graphics around. You can rearrange your chart and force-directed layout will start with your new layout, allowing you to tweak positions visually and still beautify everything afterwards.
        • A unique selection panel that allows you to instantly select all objects of a particular type, so you can modify an entire group.
        • Built-in palettes for doing basic graphs, org charts, flow charts, and object-oriented design, plus loadable palettes so third parties can design them for any specific field.
        • Imports OmniOutliner files as hierarchical diagrams.
        • Generates class inheritance diagrams from Project Builder files and from Frameworks.
        • Imports many EOModel, Diagram II and DOT files.
        • Written in native Cocoa.
