jfig is a 2D graphics and diagram editor based on the FIG file format. The user-interface of jfig is based on xfig, a popular graphics editor for the X11 window system. A short history of the jfig development is included at the bottom of the News page.
The jfig software is written in the Java programming language and can be used on notebooks, PCs, and workstations running Windows 2000/XP, Mac OS X, OS/2, and most versions of Linux and Unix. Due to the support of LaTeX-formatted text objects, jfig and xfig are often used to create diagrams for LaTeX and pdflatex documents.
