Rancho Santa Margarita, CA -- 16 December 2008 --, producers and distributors of high-quality open source and commercial Linux software, are pleased to announce the release of DataArchitect 4.1.

DataArchitect is a powerful tool that provides ERD capability like PowerDesigner as well as the ability to graphically reverse engineer, create and modify a database through ODBC and perform advanced SQL functions.
