UML in dia deprecated

Today it took me several hours to get started with sketching UML diagrams in dia – only to find out that the UML module in dia totally sucks. The position of relation labels depend on the alignment of the two classes the relation connects, the state of the program (as in “diagram has been loaded from file or has just been created”), the moon phase and about 17 more factors that I don’t know yet.

After that it took me half an hour to find out that Inkscape totally rocks even though you have to paint everything on your own. That means that you have lots of work to do but it also means that you have the control over your diagram.
