Change Vision, Inc. on 30th of July announced the release of astah* 6.2, a new version of its lightweight UML editor integrated with ERD, DFD, CRUD and Mind Mapping. (Features vary on each edition). The main three features enhanced in astah* 6.2 are as follows.

1. Alignment Guide – Put model elements on right place easily. This alignment guide, green line appears to assist you to align it with others nicely when you draw model elements. Make nice looking diagrams with less time and less arrangements at the end.
2. Free hand drawing – Draw freely on diagram. This allows you to draw whatever you want on diagrams like drawing with a marker pen. Draw a line, arrow or mark models in the review or presentations. This brings new ways to present your models.
3. Business Actor, Business UseCase, Business Worker and Business Entity support – New subsets added on toolbar of some diagrams.

Also there is a big improvement made on the free edition, astah*community 6.2.
The size of watermark on exported/generated documents/images got remarkably small and now appears only on the right bottom corner.
