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.
