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.

    iMate driver for OS X released

      Griffin Technology, Inc. has posted a beta version of the iMate driver for OS X for their iMate USB to ADB adapter. The driver can be downloaded from Griffin's web site. The new driver supports all currently available ADB drivers including the Kensington Mouseworks driver for OS X. For the first time ever, ADB devices are completely hot pluggable as the iMate OS X driver loads custom ADB driver even when connected after startup. Under OS 9, ADB devices had to be attached during startup for custom ADB drivers to load. The driver also supports multiple iMates. You can now connect several iMates to a single machine and each will provides a separate ADB interface that can load custom drivers for any devices that are attached. This provides for the possibility of being able to connect over 800 ADB devices to a single computer.

        Application and process killer for OSX : Quitling released

          A new application and process killer dockling has been released : Quitling. With Quitling, you can terminate any application or background process from the comfort of your Dock, with or without its consent. Designed as a Dockling, Quitling sits in the Dock at all times and keeps a list of open applications. Select an application from the menu and it dies a quick death, regardless of whether it's launching, running normally or frozen. Want to keep programs from even starting? Quitling's AutoKill feature will keep Classic and those pesky alternate web browsers at bay. Running mail programs that you always want open? Server software that must be online at all times? The AutoStart function takes care of that, allowing you to restart any applications or processes when they quit or crash. Quitling will be number one on the list of programs that you shouldn't need, but find invaluable anyway.
