Astah Viewer is now on Gadget!

Introducing another option to view Astah diagrams!

My colleague and one of Astah development members, Sho Ito (@shoito) has created an “Astah Viewer” OpenSocial Gadget called “Astah Viewer Gadget”. You can view diagram images created by Astah such as UML, ERD, Mind Map, Requirement diagrams and others on a Gadget on iGoogle, infoScoop or any other services you can use Open Social gadgets with.
