The one I *really* like is DOME, at
It is a free meta-modelling tool, so you can do UML, but
in fact you can go further and define your own meta-models,
and it includes a language to work on the models and generate
code, documentation etc. from them.
I think it is written in Smalltalk... just not our favorite
version of Smalltalk.
If anybody knows of some similar tools, or feels like porting
this one to Squeak... let me know!
