Hi,

I have added two more design tools to our
"Designer & Developer Tools" wiki page [1] ...

1) Adobe Illustrator CS5.5 & CS6
  * Save Artboard to FXG file

2) Radiate - Flex Designer GUI (Thanks to ... @jude)
  * About Radiate, http://www.radii8.com/blog/?page_id=2
  * Radiate Demo, http://www.radii8.com/demo/

If you are aware of any other designer & developer tools please let me know.
