The Open Source Software Development Center at University of Belgrade has released a new version of a UML plugin for NetBeans called easyUML. This plugin was created to facilitate the use of UML tools for teaching software design, but it is also a handy tool for developers. It helps developers with commonly used features by adding an easy-to-use UI.
Pictures below show the main application window with all its components common to IDE: diagram view, palette, properties view, explorer view and project view.

See how in this session, lead by NetBeans expert Geertjan Wielenga.
