Specifications
Dia is a gtk+ based diagram creation program released under the GPL license. Dia is inspired by the commercial Windows program 'Visio', though more geared towards informal diagrams for casual use. It can be used to draw many different kinds of diagrams. It currently has special objects to help draw entity relationship diagrams, UML diagrams, flowcharts, network diagrams, and many other diagrams. It is also possible to add support for new shapes by writing simple XML files, using a subset of SVG to draw the shape.

Dia has proven itself to be very robust and simple solution for development of flow charts and database structures for my various projects. In comparison to other products it is far above the similar commercial software that I have tried.

I highly recommend this dia to users in need of diagram based documentation.

The only feature additional feature I would like it the ability to save the diagrams in other formats so they can be shared and exported to other applications.
