OmniGraffle 7.8 for Mac, released in early July, includes a bunch of improvements to line routing, auto layout, keyboard editing, and to the sidebar. These improvements allow you to make beautiful and effective diagrams more easily than ever.
The biggest change is to the orthogonal line routing algorithms — which have been thoroughly modernized to provide better routes, making the connections in your diagrams even easier to follow.
Auto layout is updated too: changes are now animated, and its calculations have been made faster. You can now enable auto layout selectively, so that content that shouldn’t move stays where it is.
Mouseless editing — editing via keyboard — has gotten better: we’ve fixed some bugs to maintain the selection when using the sidebar’s Outline tab to build a diagram.
The left sidebar can now be expanded to handle long titles and very deep hierarchies. And you can now quickly create diagram nodes by pasting text into the Outline tab — each line becomes a new node.

In fact, even if you have tried it before, but didn’t buy, you can try it again. We’ve reset the trial clock — because this release is worth it.
And! OmniGraffle 3.6 for iOS is also out, and brings the relevant improvements to iPhone and iPad. Check out the release notes for more info.
