Install as Part of KDE Software Compilation

Umbrello is a fairly comprehensive UML modelling tool. Perhaps unfortunately, it runs on Linux. However I have used it in a Windows environment by running in in a Linux Virtual Machine. At the KDE 4.0 Release Event Umbrello was spotted running on both Windows and Mac OS X. These ports of KDE apps are not yet stable but you can follow progress on and KDE on Mac wiki page. See the screenshots.

Umbrello is part of KDE Software Compilation which means it comes with all GNU/Linux distributions. You will be able to install it using your normal software installation app (Muon, Software Centre, Yast etc) or command line package manager (yum, up2date, yast, zypper, apt-get, emerge etc).


The package will be called umbrello, some older distros will package it as kdesdk.
