There is a standalong peroject called Mono.UML, though AFAIK it has
not been active in several years.

There is a suggested project for MD that's very similar -- a class
designer canvas, like VS has. It's simpler an easier to use than UML,
but still very useful:

I don't believe anyone is working on anything in this area at the
moment. I'd be happy to mentor a student who applies for this.

We are also very interested in a database designer, and I belive that
it would be good to implement a "designer canvas" for visualising
objects with relationships, that could be used for both a database
deigner and a class designer. I'd suggest basing this on Moonlight as
the retained mode 2D canvas. This re-usable component would be a good
mid-term goal, then the class designer could be built on top of it.
