    Now that they own Visio, maybe Microsoft will include Visio Enterprise in the MSDN Universal (and Professional) package? Wishful thinking... -- Randy P
    Visio Standard is going to part of Office. I'm not sure what their plans are for Professional and Enterprise. -- ?jMM
    Visio Enterprise Edition is shipped with the Universal Subscription but I'm not sure about the Professional Subscrition. -- John Martin
    How is it for documenting Use Cases? Does it handle State Diagrams? I'm not interested in features like reverse engineering of VB projects and the like. -- Randy P

    Visio Enterprise supports the following sorts of diagrams: Activity Diagram, Collaboration Diagram, Component Diagram, Deployment Diagram, Sequence Diagram, Statechart Diagram, Static Structure Diagram and Use Case Diagram. jMM
