The Omni Group, the folks behind such Mac OS X products as the OmniWeb browser, has released a new
beta version of OmniGraffle 2.0, an overhaul of their diagramming and charting application for Mac OS X.
The new beta version has new icons and enhanced panels in the user interface. Stability and performance are also improved.
If you download and test out OmniGraffle 2.0, the folks at the Omni Group want to hear from you.

OmniGraffle 2.0 Beta requires Mac OS X 10.1. Licenses care US$59.95; a license for any version of OmniGraffle 1.x (including the free ones in the new Apple pro hardware bundle) will be good for any version of OmniGraffle 2.x.
The latest beta adds a “Save As Template” menu item and hierarchical layout now supports rank assignment (either min, max, or same). There’s also a magnification slider to the Magnet Info pane; menu items for Zoom In, Zoom Out, and Actual size; a “Check for Updates” menu item and preferences pane; a toolbar button for turning snap-to-grid on and off; and more.
