Hi Kim,

I've cc'd the uml2tools newsgroup about this. The UML2Tools group would be
able to let you know the status of the various supported diagrams.

It would be nice to keep the newsgroup product neutral but another tool that
supports all the diagram types except timing diagrams is IBM's RSx. It is
built on the opensource UML2 project. It's not freeware however.
Somewhere in the history of postings there was a link to applications that
use the opensource UML2 project. You will probably find a freebie there
that supports Sequence diagrams.

Cheers,
- James.
