With OmniGraffle you can create diagrams and charts by dragging and dropping items into place. It’s useful for creating everything from flow charts to org charts, network diagrams, family trees, office layouts and anything else you can visualize using symbols and lines.

The new releases — version 3.1 in both cases — add improved AppleScript support, better compatibility for Mac OS X v10.3 “Panther,” updated Actions inspector, performance optimization and other changes.
OmniGraffle costs US$69.96 and OmniGraffle Professional costs $119.90. The 3.1 updates are free for existing 3.x users. OmniGraffle requires Mac OS X v10.2 or later. Free trial versions are available for download as well.
