Diagramming widget

DiaCanvas2 is a flexible diagramming widget based on GnomeCanvas. It uses its own constraint solver to maintain object relationships. It is Model/View/Controller-based and makes full use of GnomeCanvas' features, and can rotate/shear/resize/etc objects without recalculating shapes. It includes export facilities for both GnomePrint and SVG. Except for its look and feel, DiaCanvas is not related to the diagramming tool DIA.
