Hi guys,

    I was looking for a FOSS replacement for Microsoft Visio, and I went to the page for "Free Software for Windows" because I knew it would have an answer to this question of mine. According to that page, the free software alternative to Microsoft Visio is Dia. However, when cross-examining with, I discovered that Dia was discontinued back in 2011 - at least for the Windows and (possibly) Mac versions of the program. I guess it's still being actively developed because I see it's in the Debian repositories for Wheezy (7), Jessie (8), Stretch (9), Buster (10), and Sid (unstable). So, I guess it's just an issue of compiling the program for Windows and maybe also Mac. Any idea what's going on with Dia? Why isn't it available for Windows? Why is reporting it as having been discontinued six years ago?
