Remember the promise of Saffron UML? Look to Crocus Modeler

A few years ago something pretty awesome looking was much talked about. It was an AS3 UML modeler given the name of Saffron. Many a developer drooled over this tool vaporware. I was among them.

People rumored that it was purchased by Microsoft before being released. Rumored to still be in development, etc. To be honest, I don’t know what happened to the project, but as far as I am aware, it never saw the light of day.

If you work on smaller AS3 projects, you probably didn’t care very much, but for those of use working on larger applications, it would have been a very useful tool. Well, there is now something called Crocus Modeler (I fixed the spelling). It looks to provide similar technology, it’s just not as slick in it’s UI. But guess what… this is a UI that you can actually use.

Give the tool a spin & comment on what you think of it. I have played a little bit with it and it’s pretty cool so far!!
