Currently I am mostly working on (FreeSoftware) GSM networks, adding software probes, monitors, filtering and patching of certain messages. With any complex system this is spanning across multiple applications, multiple hosts.
Because we collectively know that a picture is worth a thousand words my technical documentation should have a picture, showing the computers, their IPs, some details of how the messages flow and such. Doing this kind of work with Free Software is still a lot harder than it should be.
Currently I am getting the job done with dia, the Cisco stencils are great, many other parts (printing, exporting, scaling, text editing) are not as great and this is where Calligra Flow enters the picture. I compiled a version some months ago and there were almost no stencils, printing was broken...
Yesterday I compiled a newer version of Calligra and there is some very nice progress with Flow, printing does work, saving did work too (no crashes), there are a tons stencils. So thanks a lot for the progress and I will try again in some months.
